look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours a dark brown but still lets some light through. A good head and some lace.
Smell is roasted malt, hops and nuts.
Taste is the same as the smell, roasted malt, hops, nuts. Good balance and the flavor is not too strong for average (i.e., not heavily spiced) food, while still having a good, noticeable flavor.
Mouthfeel is smooth, medium bodied, good, but not overpowering, effervescence all over the mouth without being fizzy.
Drinkability is very high. I have had this many times before and will continue to quaff it. Better on tap (duh), but a very good example of the style. Honestly, one of the few "mainstream" lagers I buy without hesitation. Also a good brew to get those "I won't drink dark beer" people to try.
Serving type: bottle
