500 ml bottle from BevMo. Nose of yeast and mild vanilla. Mild roasted malt, pleasant caramel taste. Slightly smoky. Silky mouth feel. No hops bitterness. Good carbonation with a semi-dry finish that makes it very easy to drink. Light, yet flavorful. Love the low ABV.

500 ML bottle
Served in a pilsner glass

L - It pours brown with amber highlights. It is capped with several inches of tan head the leaves patches of lacing as it recedes down the side of the glass.

S - It has a sweet aroma. I get some cocoa and milk chocolate.

T - It starts out with a cocoa taste that builds into chocolate flavor. It is kind of sweet.

M - Moderate and chalky

O - This was an impulse buy at the local bratwurst shop. I am glad I picked in up. It is flavorful and light. It reminds me of a Kozel Cerny I had a few years ago that I enjoyed. One of the better dark Euro lagers that I have had.

Back label is printed "375" but no indication of a date.
Thanks to Julie & Ryan for this one!

Dark mahogany copper color when held to the light. Compact layer of velvety foam that seems to subside after a few minutes. Spindly, drippy lacing in the glass.

Smell is a little bland, vague lager yeast and some light traces of maple or tobacco.

Light roasted malt, a little prickly from the carbonation, smooth mild coffee and tobacco flavors linger in the aftertaste. Schwartzbier-ish. Light bodied but somewhat substantial, a little watery in the finish, traces of oxidation. Overall it's a good dark lager, maybe a little bit long in the tooth, but still has some life left.

Almost a finger of tan head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is roasted and chocolate malt. Nice.
The roasted malt comes through in the taste as well, along with a little milk and mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is a little fizzy and crisp.
An enjoyable experience with the flavorful taste but still lighter lager.
