This beer is dark because the barley is roasted longer– a flavorful lager that everyone will enjoy.

Sampled this evening on 8/24/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 'Dinkel Acher' .3 liter glass boot.

Pours a reddish-mahogany in color with about a 1-finger foamy off-white head that settles down to a thin layering on top. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of yeast and sweet caramel malts. Pretty much is the same for the taste with a slightly sour finish but didn't last. Lighter to medium bodied. Overall, it wasn't a bad brew.

12 oz glass bottle. Birthday gift sampler pack! This is my first trial run.

Smell - bready, caramel, sweet. An exquisite smell. Akin to Nordeast.

Taste - Taste is surprisingly pretty good. Smooth and smoky flavor, ending on a slightly metallic sour note.

Mouthfeel - Glassy smooth and bubbly. Goes down easy.

Overall - this is a good beer. I would order it in a pub and drink it again if Nordeast was not available. Not quite as good as a Nordeast but a good 2nd. Schell has done another great job!
