look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

was introduced to this beer from an old boss. i think he drank it so that no one else would ask for one... normal appearance, smell but sub par taste stale, oxidized finish that remindes me of pecan shell bitterness.
drinkable because nothing is very intense. kind of bland if you dont think about it much.

2.81/5  rDev -7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Sampled last night on 5/5/14 and had this one many times before but has been awhile. Used to be imported from Germany but now made by Anheuser Busch. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours a very dark amber in color with a lighter tan head that dissipates quickly that leaves some lacing when sipped but not much. Smells and tastes different to what I remember back in the '80's and early '90's even. Aroma is of roasted malts with a hint of brown sugar. Taste is on the weak side and not like I really remember. Overall, disappointed.
