11.2oz bottle into a chilled standard pint.

A: sidepour got about a finger of mocha head or so. Almost completley black, a little bit of light makes it through if I look really hard. When that little light gets through, it appears very dark red.

S: A bit of darkness on the nose, has that crisp lager smell. Not sweet smelling at all, good balance there. A bit hoppy but not overbearing.

T: Lagery. pretty simple. Well balanced. Not much I can say about it really. Follows the nose but less darkness on the palate. Refreshing but not amazing.

M: Light and crisp, expected.

O: Not bad but there are better lagers for cheaper. Would drink it again but not buy it myself.

Seemed like it wanted to be a good beer but on tasting it reminded me of a black lager mixed with water. Seemed empty to me with not much to it. I was rather dissatisfied.
I would appreciate some body and flavor, give me something to like or dislike.
