Exceptionally good for what they have to offer. Loved the flavour and smoothness of this lager

It's not bitter, but it's also not overtly sweet. It's quite interesting in that sense--soft, hints of chocolate, coffee, lightly fruity, marshmallow. I expected to dislike it, but it's genuinely quite nice. Credit to Sleeman/Sapporo for not interfering with the various Canadian micros they own.

This is one of my "go to" beers. I love the taste and feel of Black Lager - it pours like coca cola, smells a bit like hot chocolate with marshmallows, and tastes so good. There is a bit of coffee and a roasted malt smoothness that is incredibly enjoyable. I rarely buy six of the same beer at one time, but when I do, it is usually this beer.
