Not a bad dark session lager. The appearance on this was lighter than I was expecting. It is a clear, dark red-ish brown that holding it up to the light looks like a nice strong tea. The half-finger of beige head disappeared quickly but left a small ring around the glass throughout. The nose has nice earthy tones of straw and wood with perhaps a hint of chocolate. Its body is smooth with just enough carbonation to notice. Yet seems exceedingly thin for a dark beer. All things considered I'd have this again.

Pours a clear dark brown with a short-lasting off-white head. Slight lacing. The aroma is dark fruit, roasted malt and a little bit of earth. The taste is similar. The body is is thinner and smooth, with just a hint of carbonation as it finishes. It doesn't have the depth of a Kostritzer, but is still a good beer.
