Dark brown. A bit murky-looking. Interesting nose - dark toffee/molasses thing is promising. This character carries through on a medium body. At the end, there is some toastiness. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2010
Attractive tea-amber colour with lasting head. Grain yeast and hop aroma. Interesting herbal yeast flavour with some grain and hop. Somewhat thin and airy. Hard to place as a dark lager. PorterPounder (8228) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2010
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Dark chestnut brown pour with a spongy off-white head. Slightly sweet aroma with some nutty accents and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is solid with some nutty accents, very mild chocolate, brief mention of dates. Mouthfeel is on par for a lager. Nothing jumps out at you - but a decent drinking lager.

A dense off-white head forms over this garnet-tinged dark brown brew.
Sweet candy malt aroma.
The flavor starts sweet but never really builds up enough momentum to go any further. Some dryness towards the finish.
Thin, empty. Ratman197 (15220) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2010

plenty of head. Dark colour. Drinkable but I was hoping for more oomph. jtclockwork (17101) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose of roast coffee, roast chocolate and smoked malt. Taste is lacking - mostly likely smoked and roasted chocolate malt. Body is very thin. Lacks complexity. Travlr (25828) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber brown color, medium off white head. Aroma of toffee. Taste is biscuit, toffee, cocoa. ShaneJ (898) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle from Beer Cartel. Hazy dark brown, roasty malt, burnt caramel, grassy hops, quite dry, moderate bitterness. Ok. reebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
750ml corked bottle pours a dark brown color with a 2 finger beige head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild chocolate with some grass and grains. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Average at best for the style. Definitely, not one of my favorites.
