0.5l can.
Pours deep brown beer with decent beige head, slowly transforming to a ring of froth. Smell is rather weak, metallic, caramel, plum jam. Taste is too sweet and watery for good schwarzbier, not roasted, but excessively sweet for the sort. Poor and faceless.

Poured black with some translucent reddish highlights; a cream head with minimal lace; weak retention. Smelled like prunes, subtle roasted malt, and metal. It tasted weak, watery, metallic, and it wasn't balanced enough; too sweet and malty and not dry enough in the backend; I like schwarzbiers to have a balance of a subtle sweetness and dry goodness; lighter bodied, watery, and wet. It was a pretty weak schwarzbier. Look elsewhere if you want a good Schwarz.
