Lagerboy (2165) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
341 ml bottle. Clear deep dark copper, lasting small foamy tan head. Aroma of darker roasted lager malt, chocolate and nuts. Taste is darker toasty lager malt, milk chocolate, a bit nutty with a hint of coffee, faint earthy herbal hop. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Surprisingly nice milder robust flavor with a light clean lager finish makes it: MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

kramer (6658) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Tap, brewery. Nice clear dark brown body with a small foamy off-white head. Great chocolate and roasted malt nose with some sweet licorice and caramel. The flavor is a bit thin and husky, but theres some nice chocolate and light roastiness. Very clean finish with licorice and light roast coffee. Clean crisp mouthfeel,fine fizzy carbonation. Nice light hoppiness on the back end. Really nice easy drinking beer. Came across much like a Schwarzbier.
