RATINGS: 26   MEAN: 3.22/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.19/5   IBU: 30   EST. CALORIES: 144   ABV: 4.8%
An easy drinking medium body lager, with just a tiny hint of roastiness and a noticeable but well-balanced hop presence thats not overly bitter. An opaque black lager that reveals deep ruby undertones in the light. Munich, Pilsner and Black Malt flavors play off the flowery, spicy notes of Noble German hops. Cold fermentation and conditioning with Bavarian lager yeast assures a clean draught with a dry finish.

Sample at Hay Merchant. Opaque brown-black pour with a medium light tan head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and hops. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of bready malt, chocolate and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a roasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall.
