330ml bottle. Pokal glass. Dark brown color & brownish amber to the light. Yellowish froth, close & lasting crown, some rings are left. Noble hop aromas & slight chocolate hints on the back. Roasted & dried upfront. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Watery texture. Low floral bitterness in the middle lingers into a light spicy & bitter/sweet finish. Very easy drinkable beer.

0.33 l bottle bought at local crap supermarket. Never seen this in Norway before, but had it years ago in Prague, and in Berlin. Remember it as a typical, modern Dunkel, with good body, nice malt complexity and lightly, but elegantly hopped.

Poured into tall pilsener glass at 11 degrees. Transparent brown-red, very thin head disappearing in seconds, leaving little. Odd.

Smells very little, some metal, some soy sauce, tiniest hint of burnt caramel, perhaps. Not really appealing.

Is it supposed to taste anything? What the hell has happened to this beer? It reminds me of my first, naïve attempt at home brewing, using a Coopers "stout" kit. Except that had more of this foul, thin nothingness. Yuck!

Thin as water. Maybe thirst-quenching on a hot day, but there are pale lagers for that. Or real, untainted water.

Shame on the people behind this. And selling three decilitres of this swill for 31 kroner per bottle! That's €3.75, people. Or $5.17. Or 3.08 pounds sterling.

Had a 0.5l glass of this at Potrefena Husa in Plzen on 04OCT13. Cost was 39CZK, about $2.20.

The tall, slender flute held a clear, deep mahogany bier. Head was healthy, foamy and frothy, tan in color and long-lasting. Good lace was also on the ticket. The nose gave off some caramel, but was exceedingly mild on the whole. Body was underwhelming, too, though it was smooth.

Tasted of mild, light caramel, with a hint of sweetness at the start. Also found a bit of roasty malt in there, and the finish displayed subtle hopping but a bit too much bitterness. Nothing to write home about, I'm afraid...

Beer really reminds me of dark toffee candy. Loaded! Anyway, poured at a good temperature wiht nice, medium sized, light tan head that soon settled and no lace. Color is a clear, tho almost opaque, dark ruby red. Aroma is super mild, only suggestions of roast and toffee. Flavor’s like nose. carbonic tang is in front followed by some toffee sweet with a little regular malt, caramel, hint of roast; bit shallow. Body and carbonation are ok. Finish is like flavor, good length, and good enough for a couple.
