Never been a big lager fan, but this has a surprisingly good stout/porter like flavor without being overpowering. Could have been a bit heavier but still very drinkable.

I thought this was so tasty for a "Lager." Roasty and burnt but still light. Nicely done for sure.

This is the kind of brew people should consider for a session beer. Low ABV, nice malt character, light roast on the palate, crisp lager finish which is great in hot weather, nicely hoppy without being overly bitter, and doesn't have the watered down quality that is infecting session IPAs left and right.

Pretty tasty Schwarzbier that has everything in the right place aroma and flavour wise. Lots of malt and roasted coffee, and is surprisingly easy to drink for a darker beer.

Just a little on the thin side, even for a black lager, but on the whole a readily available session dark it a more than reasonable price.
