3.23/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Presented in a 16.9oz bottle like the one shown. Even with a gentle pour, this dark lager produced a large, frothy mocha-colored head that towered over a clear reddish-brown beer.
The nose was sweet, slightly fruity, and loaded with caramel malt and light earthy notes. The taste was uniformly bland, with a ho-hum malt and caramel flavor. Really no hops evident anywhere. The feel was medium-bodied, rather creamy thanks to the large amount of carbonation, and had a dry finish.
Overall, this was a pretty one-dimensional beer. Rather bland and lackluster, it wasn't anything that got me wishing I had more than one.

3.26/5  rDev -13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Presentation: 500ml (1 Pt 0.9 fl.oz) brown glass wide bodied short necked bottle. Teutonic label, colorful with a hint of tradition, just like the BA Database picture. The reverse label lists the beer at 5.2%, no freshness date but a stamped ‘L3322’ code.

Appearance: Gorgeous looking deep drown burgundy body. Lucid, the massive initial head soon settles down to a rather calm looking ¾” pillowy light tan color. Fantastic lacing is formed as the beer drinks, little carbonation but this does not affect the head retention at all. Excellent looks.

Nose: Grainy malts, sweet malts, freshly cut wood and some mild hot chocolate aromas.

Taste: Barley, grains, sweaty oats, sweet malts and grainy woodchip. Overall though, this is a relatively sweet malty beer that is clean drinking. Has a dry ending with a little bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Wood and grains add texture to the delicate body lending a very average feel overall. Clean lines though.

Drinkability: Barely above average Export Dunkel, worth trying, but I always seem to find these German styles boring very quickly, which detracts from their quaffability for me after a while.

Overall: Not bad, not great, just average.
