The color is something between brown and ruby more on the ruby side. Clear. Nice white/beige head on top of it. Sticky and tenacious. Nice looking beer in a glass.

Aroma is typical of lager with some roasted malts. Cereals. Simple aroma and straightforward. For a lager, the aroma is intense. Not use to this strong aroma. Taste is dominated by roasted malts. The bitterness is timid. Very refreshing as a lager should be! Nice taste. I was not expecting this good... its better than what I anticipated. A nice beer for day-to-day drinking.

A good, but very simple, beer.

Serving type: can

Appearance is dark, translucent copper with pancake head and nice lacing.

Nose is fresh grain, baked pretzels, and hops.

Taste is hardy grain, oats, light caramel malt, honey, and a mild hop finish.

Mouthfeel is thick & chewy with medium carbonation and great drinkability.

Overall, it is a solid German.

Serving type: on-tap

Served on tap at Rheinland Restaurant in Independence Missouri.
Served in Warsteiner Mug.

A- Pours a light Chestnut color, with very froth bubbly head that lingers leaving little to no lacing.

S- Malty, Yeasty.

T- Not much there. I guess you could say its "dark beer" thats about it.

M- not thick at all, very thin. Med-High carbonation.

O- So, so. it feels like a mass produced dark beer. Like the "Bud Light of dark beers"

Poured a dark brown colour with a good head. Smells of dark fruits, honey, and caramel. Taste is of caramel with a honey finish. The finish is clean and warm with medium carbonation. Okay mouthfeel but is almoat soda like. I will have at least one of these in my fridge for a nice winter night.

Serving type: bottle

a schwarzbier through and through. pours a foamy dark brown thin color with a nice white head an inch or two high. smells malty and a bit roasty with some notes of caramel and black licorice, but only gently. mouthfeel is average too, a bit of carbonation and some nice complexity in the finish. i wasnt wowed here. a sessionable darker munchen style brew, malty and boring in many ways. eh
