LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Bottle - This beer is mediocre. The color is nice, but the beer is thin lacking a full bodied flavor that I expect given the color of the beer. Hysteria (38) - USA - MAY 18, 2003
Had this on draft today. No head and low on carbonation. Dark black coffee color. It is smooth but nothing in it gives it real character. hayden1215 (321) - Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2003
Dark brown in color with a light brown fizzy head, quickly diminishing. Malty nose with a hint of choclate. Flavor is sweet and grainy with some smokiness. Body is quite thin, clean finish. Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2003
Deep brown color with medium head.Malty aroma that smells stronger than it tastes. Smooth overall taste with a simple finish. For a cheaper beer pretty impressive 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2003
Deep brown, with a little light passing through the glass. Thin, creamy, malty aroma, with a hint of pine-scented cleaner in there as well. Not a strong taste, but very carbonated, and a little watery, syrupy, but with a nice roasted, creamy flavor.

I thought this was pretty good until I tried Newcastle the next night, still nothing to sneeze a good thick beer WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2003
A decent dunkel, with a nice malt nose, good ruby color, and a fairly light flavor. A stronger, deeper flavor would benefit this beer...and the drinker! Panzuriel (2366) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Very dark color with a nice head. Roasted malt aroma with a nice taste. Good dunkel beer with a clean finish. gjamieson (81) - Canton, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2003
I was impressed with this brew. Good malt aroma, impressive color, and nice finish. Recommended as a lower-price dark lager. Murph06 (121) - Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Nice malty aroma but surprisingly NOT creamy. That is the name, isn't it? A let- down from a brewery that is my fave macro from North America. More body and complexity needed---ya think they took bottles of their lager and added carmel coloring after "over-aging"...?
