I would classify this as a Schwarzbier or a Munich Dunkel, although it is definitely not up to par with most of either variety. This is a very unobtrusive brew, but it needs more of a kick to be anything special. Mild malty flavor, very dark with a minimal head and lacing. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown. Aroma is lightly malty (dark bread, caramel),
lightly hoppy (flowers), with a hint of clove. Flavor is lightly sweet,
lightly bitter. Finish is lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. dwyerpg (6188) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 26, 2003
Nice red-brown color. Good full taste. Loses some taste if its too cold. Does have a slight coffee taste to it, which is not good. Good, not great, probabl won't get again.

Dark brown color, medium head. Nice malted, slightly roasted malts, some malt sweetness. Good hop balance. Nice flavor, perhaps a little mild? . Mouthfeel is full. The “original Munich formula”. A change from the Lowenbrau of a few years ago. Very nice. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty, slightly bitter. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Pours a deep dark amber color. Aromas of roast malts and hops. Big hop flavor, light body with almost no aftertaste. Frank (4196) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2003
Much better cold; the malt flavor is more appearant and some sour notes are hidden. Slightly-carmelly malt nose. A hint of roasted barley. Negligible head. Active carbonation. Reddish brown. Light to medium bodied. Front is a bit watery but the finish is malty and creamy. Crit (4011) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2003
Good malt profile throughout with medium body. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
12oz bottle Brewed by Miller (old Notes)-Pours brown with a small head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was a pretty darn tasty brew back in the day.
