Appearance - Pours a near black cola brown with tan head that peaks at just under 2 finger widths. Average retention. The resulting lace is thin but consistent and somewhat sticky.

Smell - Sweet, with lightly roasted aromas. Some saaz euro hops on the nose as well; floral and somewhat dry.

Taste - Light and sweet, with a fair amount of malt roastiness and hints of floral hoppiness. The finish is quick, and the flavor profile fairly simple.

Mouthfeel - Light, with decent carbonation. Finishes somewhat dry, leaving the throat a tad more parched than the sip before.

Overall - About what is to be expected. A lighter bodied Guinness, but Guinness' strength, it's nice, creamy mouthfeel, is nowhere to be found. That's a bad thing. I'd drink it if offered, but I'll probably never buy it again, especially if it comes down to this or either of the Guinness stouts.

picked up a mix six of random beers , most of the beers available were ones i already had . it had been a while since i had a black lager and give it a go. cola color with a nice malty colored head . the roasted malt aroma is pretty faint. it is a drinkable . was hoping for a bit more out of this beer , for my none beer drinking friends this can be a stepping stone for the style.
