Nice creamy lager with a roasted feel. Decent lacing. Strong carbonation. A lager with character.

500ml bottle.

A: Pours a very dark brown/light black with dark reddish highlights under a one-inch thick tan head which fades to a thin cap and rim leaving splotchy lace.

N: Mildly roasted malts, grainy, nutty, earthy, faint char.

T: Dark grains of bready malts, some light roasty notes, faint caramel, mildly sweet.

M: Semi-moderate body and medium carbonation. Clean and malty finish.

O: Easy drinking and not too heavy. Pass the pretzels and sausages, please.
