From old tasting notes. Brewed by Miller in Milwaukee. Clear reddish brown color. Small bubble carbonation leads to a nice frothy beige head. Delicious chocolate roasted malt nose. Roasted malt flavor is semisweet and light. Hoppy middle and finish. Medium full bodied and flavorful. Lacks the complexity and maltiness of the German version.

Didn’t take tasting notes. Just wrote down the score so I’m typing just enough words.

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.

vinivini (3000) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 19, 2013
From retail showing 4,7% ABV. Deep brown light to medium body, Thin porous head. Aroma of brown sugar, roasted malt, bread, rusk. The taste is of sweet & bitter in similar quantities. Disappointingly abrupt finish. Well I’ve tried it.

Rating applies to 1960-1968 production, which included some corn. Current production is regrettably a wholly different experience, but at the time it was truly the best beer on tap on the Continent!

Ok. This rating is for the old Miller Lowerbrau dark. I really miss that beer. It was one of my favorite beers from my school days. I know some people didn’t like it because it had corn in it, but it actually was a great tasting beer. What I remember about it was it had the best aftertaste of any beer of the day and it actually got better the more one would drink. I know it will never happen but I wish there was some way of trying it one more time.

Thin body and modest head. Very light carmel taste with little hop bitterness. Was much better years ago.
