Poured similar to what amber bock (its replacement?) color is, but a little darker, but thinner in appearance, with less head and even less lace and retention. Aroma came off more macro-ish, lacking any sweet lagerness or roasted aroma.

Taste, thin, had some bitterness. Didn't come up with anything substantial, the malt was all about the color, not the amount. Get the SRM's up with no substance, no appreciable flavors here, a weird sour bitterness, not associated with hops or yeast? Huh? Just like colored water that was really, really old.

I can see why it ain't around anymore, this was right up there w/ Lowenbrau dark.

I used to love this stuff. Very malty. It probably wouldn't hold up in today's marketplace, but I really did enjoy it 30 years ago.
