3.58/5 rDev -3.8%
12 oz undated bottle purchased in Ohio and served in a Belgian snifter.
A: clear, dark reddish-brown with a small but moderately durable head. Some lacing.
Aroma: very sweet light and medium roasted malts.
Taste; still sweet, but thankfully not as sweet as the aroma. Still, a little sweeter than optimal. Rather simple and very malt dominant.
Feel: smooth; medium-light body seems a bit thin; medium-light carbonation.
O: a decent Tmavy.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass.
Appearance-pours dark red-brown with minimal head, no lacing to be found. 3
Aroma-sweet smelling with a slight hint of roasted malts. Some small plum smells but mostly just a typical lager aroma. 3.5
Taste-sweet malts right up front, some mild dark fruits, a little vanillia, brown sugar, not bad at all for a dark lager. 4
Feel-light bodied, drinkable as hell, a little watery, coats well but doesn't linger. 3.75
Overall-this is a great session beer and it doesn't taste half bad to boot. This would be a good beer to give to someone who doesn't drink much craft. The flavors could be stronger but for a lager they are better than most. 3.75
