This kind of reminds me of this dude who was a total player back in the 80s. Mullet and Camaro. Anyways, this was like a shittier version of Amber Bock as previously mentioned.

Dark, but still thin. 1/7" off white head. Aroma of roasted barley.

Taste had an almost baltic porter like dark fruit bitterness without the ingredients to pull it off, needs more 2 row. Thicken this up. Too much metallic bitterness too. No hop feels.

Its like the pendulum swing equivalent of how shitty Michelob ultra is, but dark.

I used to love this stuff. Very malty. It probably wouldn't hold up in today's marketplace, but I really did enjoy it 30 years ago.
