2.4/5 rDev -23.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5
Upon pouring correctly it gives a whitish to light brown one finger head. When held to direct light you can see one stream of rising bubbles. The color is really dark brown. It laces nicely.
The aroma is faint and does not radiate from the glass. What smells there are would be faint roasted smells, maybe hops and watered down smells. Maybe barley as well. Its hard to tell as it doesn't show itself as lots of good beers do.
the taste is watered down flavors that the faint aromas show. It is refreshing as the flavors that are there are pleasant in a way. Its refreshing for someone who is not adventurous. I think this beer was made to market towards people who normally don't drink dark beers. This beer is less flavorful and aromatic than most dark beers even the draughts. The refreshing taste is all it really has.
The mouthfeel is low as it is flat and has little carbonation. It still is smooth however and is good for that reason.
Overall, we think this is a beer that was made to be mass produced and is not sticking to the roots they are known for. Its refreshing but has little more than that.

poured from a ~15oz can into a pint glass.
A: Thick beige head that falls slowly and clings to the glass. Nice black color, clear and dark brown along the edges.
S: Bread, very light roast, a little earthy.
T: Smooth malty start, a surprisingly strong bitter kick which lingers. Pretty simple.
M: Light, smooth, creamy carbonation.
O: Nice clean black lager. Easy drinking with a light roasted character and smooth mouth.
Serving type: can
