3.65/5 rDev -2.9%
A: Pours a clear medium brown in color. The beer has a half finger tall creamy beige head that reduces to a thin film covering about half of the surface of the beer and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal lacing is observed.
S: There is a sweetness to the smell of this beer with dark fruits and caramel/toffee dominating.
T: Light to moderate flavors of dark fruit sweetness in the malts, some lightly burnt malts, and just a hint of caramel. Just a touch of bitterness in the finish.
M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.
O: This beer is easy to drink and enjoyable. With the lower ABV and not too intense flavor, this beer is easily sessionable and definitely one that I would try again.

Einbecker Schwarzbier has a very thick, creamy, beige head, with some lacing and a clear, brown appearance, with tiny streams of bubbles. The aroma is of sweet, medium-toasted barley, brown bread, a little chocolate and coffee, and whiff of hops. Taste is similar, with a subtle added dark cherry aspect. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Einbecker Scwarzbier finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mostly dry, and highly drinkable. Simply an outstanding beer.

Pours a nice clear Coca-Cola brown with a fairly thick, fine-bubbled and rather persistent pale tan head. Strong, malty aroma has an overtone of pear and is on the sweet side. Flavor has a malty core and tones of caramel, licorice and fruit and a hint of grass. Smooth texture has a decent amount of fizz and about average body. Overall, not outstanding but definitely worth a try.

APPEARANCE: This beer, poured from a bottle into a flute, produced a medium tan creamy 1/2" head that dissipated slowly leaving thin head lacing. Carbonation was soft in a clear dark brown body with copper highlights.
AROMA: Pure German malts; nothing else.
TASTE: Sweet malts with a hit of moderate caramel and a light bit of toffee.
MOUTHFEEL: This beer has a medium body with a smooth texture, soft carbonation and thin body lacing that dissipates slowly. The initial flavor is lightly sweet with a very lightly bitter finish that lasted for a moderate length of time.
DRINKABILITY: Definitely repeatable, easy to drink and a good, but not great, schwarzbier. It's just a little too sweet for my taste, but that's a minor point. It provides a good price to value profile and I'd buy it again, particularly for a long night of beer and conversation with friends.

Clear dark brown red, only a film of head.
Smells amazingly of caramelized sugar and some raisins.
Taste has almost no sweetness, more of a dark bread taste with a bit of malt bitterness.
Feels like liquid bread crust, not crunchy or rough, just firm and a medium to low dryness. Light carbonation.

Found this in my mix and match section at Beer Nutz.
A - Well this happens to be the lightest "dark" beer I ever had. Clear amber brown with a half inch of opaque colored head. Lacing is pretty good.
S - Smells more like a bock to me with caramel and toffee leading with some harsh grains and mild roast.
T - Very harsh at first almost like it was skunked (green bottle) but I soon found out it was from the Pilsner malts so I warmed up to it. Still not that great with mild sweetness and little roast it didn't really strike me as a good rep of the style.
M - Light to medium, it was spot on for the body.
Overall more of a bock rather than a Schwartz this beer is boring and forgettable.

(Bottle into dimpled mug) I was rather surprised by this one. I expected a Schwarzbier to be black and heavy on the roast, to the point where I could taste it. This had none of that. The pour was a dark, deep brown, which is attractive, but when you can see through to the bottom of the glass, schwarz it is not! A thin head formed then was gone almost immediately. There was no real aroma I could put my finger on. There was a hint of a roast and a little pepper, but nothing remarkable. The drink itself was very disappointing. I expect something of this style to be a little thicker and have bold flavor.
Upon letting this one sit for a while to warm, I found that the flavors did develop nicely and there was a bit of a caramel malt that came out and gave this some character. Still not my favorite, but not too bad afterall!

A - When you call it a Schwarzbier, I hope for a Schwarz(black) beer... this is a deep brown. Wonderful clarity, but obviously low ABV by the lack of density. I was wishing for more color, but I give it points for appearing as a well made Lager.
Oh, and it holds a nice pillowy cap for longer than expected of a lager.
A - Not much going on here. Well, nothing is intense. It's not really peppery or zesty, like a Pils. The lighter grist bill, I shouldn't be expecting Bock notes. It there's some breadiness, faint roast, and caramel.
T - Very pedestrian. I expect Schwarzbiers to be Pilsners with with a little roasted bite at the finish. This is more of a Dunkel Lager that wasn't afraid to fill its role.
Hops are void, some chewiness, cracker and sweet notes round out the flavors.
M - Very wet, it's no different than your generic adjunct lager. If you're used to light beers (or heavy ones) it's a nice change of pace.
O - I couldn't drink this all day long and wish Adjunct Macro Lagers were of the same calibre. I also appreciate the opportunity to have tried this beer. Otherwise, spend your money elsewhere.

A: Dark brown in color, perfectly clear, with a tan head that thins out quickly but never really goes away.
S: I get a tad of roast, with some graininess mixed in.
T: Mild roast compared to the nose, it has a bit of caramel.
M: Very smooth, a tad watery. this is light bodied and low carbonated.
D: Super high drinkability. Quite refreshing, could drink this one all day long.
