As always, I approached this European lager with trepidation. As often as not, they arrive on our shelves showing some abuse. Fortunately, this one had survived in still-drinkable shape. The only flaw I could detect was a slight oxidation note, just detectable in the aroma and flavor...not quite enough to put me off, just enough to notice. I was a little surprised to read on the back that it has artificial sweetener added to it. Upon drinking, I can believe this, since I would expect a 3.8% beer to be a bit more on the dry side, where this one finishes with a slightly sticky sweetness. Not a lot, mind you, they at least held themselves to sweetening just enough to offset the roasted bitterness. I would rather have paid a little bit more money to get a beer that was brewed stronger to achieve that sweetness through residual malt sugars, though. Oh well, I guess that's why there's more than one brewer in the world. All in all, not a bad product with decent caramelly malt character. The quest continues...

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

500ml bottled served in a Lager glass.

A: Nice bottle art. Black bottle with a black tinfoil around the neck. Pours a very dark amber to brown color forming a big bubbled tan head. Low retention and only few thin lacings left in the glass

S: Quite roasty and biscuity. Strong notes of roasted malts. Notes of toffee and flowery hops

T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of roasted malts. Quite dry, crispy and biscuity. Notes of chocolate biscuit. Light bitterness and a bit earthy too

M: Very light and watery body. Medium carbonation. Roasted and earthy aftertaste

O: Smooth and easydrinking. Nice Schwarzbier

The beer comes in a dark color with a bit of reddish in the light with a brown head.

The aroma has a wonderful deep toasty malt with some roast qualities along with those Czech spicy and grassy hops. A lager yeast, a light coffee.

The flavor has a clean nutty toasted malt with some light chocolate and coffee. A toasty bread of whole wheat, even a light fruit quality of apple skin and light raisin. A clean lager quality with some spicy Czech grassy hops in the finish. A very clean beer with a medium minus mouthfeel, but still with substantive malt quality.

The beer is wonderfully flavorful with pilsner qualities on the finish, but still contains full malt qualities.
