3.65/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz stubby brown bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Brownish ruby hued beer, exceptional clarity. Thin tan lace foams up nice during the pour but after a minute it disappears into a thin ring and certainly lacks in retention.

Smell: Dark bread malty aroma, not much else and clean at that.

Taste: Moderate body, laid back crispness. Sweet with dark bready flavours, fresh grain throughout. Quite malty with an underlying graininess. Clean to the palate, hops bring an easy going bitterness to the table. The hops bunch up with the graininess in the end and both help to tone down the sweetness. Good lingering maltiness in the end, a bit thin but flavourful none the less.

Notes: Not too shabby, if you like dark lagers this is not really that bad. It is somewhat middle of the road but there are no off flavours or complexities that jump out and make your taste buds scream.

Serving type: bottle
