Very dark amber colour, hazy, medium tanned head, retained some lacing. Initial malty aroma gave way too Saaz, quite pleasant. Tasted malty and a bit Saazy, finish was long and roasted. Moderate carbonation, body slightly thick, sticky texture. Basically this is normal Breznak with some added colouring/sweetener, drinkable but forgetable.

Bottle into halleroder mini-stein (.3L) in Leipzig, Germany. Reviewed live.

A: Three finger head of slight tan colour, slight cream, good thickness. Semitransparent amber-copper colour. Appealing.

Sm: Caramel and amber hops. Mild strength scent.

T: Nice sleek caramel and cream finish. Slight hop body with lots of amber hops. Almost some nut. The balance is off as most of the flavour is in the second half. The open is a bit watery. Nicely complex for the low price.

Mf: A bit too thick for the style and ABV. Somewhat artificially creamy. Smooth and a bit buttery. Quite wet. The worst feature of this beer.

Dr: Easy enough to drink, but not a good ABV. Very affordable in Leipzig. Around .45 Euro. Meh. Too thick to even be a good drinking beer.

A: It looks exactly like a darker version of a cola drink. Carbonation not so dense.

S: It smells very sweet and soda like. Almost reminds me of the way certain Belgian beers smell. Malts. Faintly of alcohol.

T: Smokey, sweety and slightly syrupy. The sweetness kind of ruins it for me.

M: Somewhat mouthpuckering due to the sweetness.

D: I didn't dump it, but it's really not great.
