3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Refreshing smell for a lager. Quite heavy head, darkish brown color. Head disappears very quickly. Slightly sweet aftertaste, hints of burned malts. Not the best dark lager but okay for a basic market beer.
Can 0.5l from local market, Vantaa. Originally rated 19042012. Colour is clear amber with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Grain, sweetness, caramel and malts. Toomio (604) - Joensuu, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Jos olisi tiennyt lageriksi ja tummaksi, niin olisipa ollut aika paljon parempi arvostella. Todella hyvä suutuntuma. djoeye (5207) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2013
50cl alu-can Black Horse Dark Lager III.
Pours a light caramel-white coloured head on the dark brown body, with bubbles.
Colour is close to schwarzbier, and "tumma lager" is dunkel/tmavy.
Scents of grass, hops, sweet malts.
Taste caramel malts, very smooth mouthfeel, and soft bitterness at the end.
Overall it feels close enough to amber lager. Leighton (22306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Can at a ChrisO tasting - London. Pours clear, amber-ruby with a fine, filmy white head. Toasty dough malts in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, doughy toast, slight leafy bitterness. Somewhat bland. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp finish with very faint caramel and toast. Yeah, pretty bland overall, but not offensive. Psytron (2500) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Roasty smell. Cola colour, smal beige head. Roasted aroma, some candy and chocolate.

Can from Tbone, thanks! Dark brown color. Toffee and cola in the aroma. Caramel and bitter nuts in the cola-like flavor. Hints of metal. Not my taste. Pyrmir (6210) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2013
500 ml can. Aroma dark and sweet, burnt and a hint of dried fruits. Tastes very burnt, and smoked. Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Aroma has earthy malting. Not much more. Look is good. Clear ruby red with one finger creamy, slightly beige head, also lacing. Taste is sweet, dark fruits, caramel malting. Light to medium body, thin and soft feel, low carbonation, very light roasted, finish short. Well..bit diluted and plain. Not bad but nothing special either.

Clear dark reddish brown colour with a medium head. Aroma is bread, malts and a bit of caramel. Light flavor is malts, caramel and roasted bread.
