A pours dark. not a log lasting tan head that did not stick around

S I smelled it right away when poured. Toasty grain taste.

T I get a significant part of the toast in the taste

M- moderate thickness with little carbonation.

O - People don’t seem to like this, but I think it is a decent beer.

This beer pours with a lot of promise - nice foamy head, good colour, decent nose. Overall, there is nothing wrong with this beer. It is underwhelming, more than anything else. The roasted malts are very faint and there is little depth or complexity in the flavour. There are far better Euro Dark Lagers than this, but I would not turn it down if there was nothing else to drink.
