This poured black into a pilsner glass with a large foamy head that looked impressive but didn't last very long.

I don't get much on the nose, a little earthy maybe a little malt. The mouth feel is very light, crisp and carbonated. There are some nice malty flavors and I get a little hops in the finish. It's definitely on the light side which is true to style.

This is a pretty good refreshing beer but not quite as good as the Sprecher Black Bavarian or Monschof Schwarzbiers that I've enjoyed.
