Yet another in a long line of German beers that I have never seen anywhere else appearing randomly on Chinese store shelves.

A; Poured from the 500mL can into a large mug. The beer is a nice pure dark brown color with little light coming through, just as it should be. Head is off white to very light tan and reached a nice 3 fingers before settling down after a minute. Good start.

Smell is pretty faint but contains pretty much what you might expect. Some caramel malt and dark breads. OK.

Taste: Not great. Starts off a bit thin and watery and then reveals a slight hint of roasted malt in the middle before turning to water again. Alcohol hit in there as well which is weird because it's not very strong.

Just a badly pieced together beer, which sucks because it looks so good and it's not everyday that you come across new beers in China.
