Poured into a pint glass. Appears to be a reddish copper color with bright clarity and some carbonation visible. Compact cap of off white foam, that settles fairly quickly, leaving little lacing at all.

Funky and sweet, grainy lager nose. Some toast, brown sugar, and watered down lager.

Flavor is similar, fairly sweet with wet paper graininess. Very bland and dull. Malt-o-meal cereal (malt oatmeal) and brown sugar, wet stewed grain husks. Watery body, fairly clean aftertaste. Not something i'd revisit, it's a laughable, feeble attempt at a dark lager.

This one poured out as a deep amber coloe with a thin fizzy cream colored head on top. The smell of the beer is pretty sweet with lots of caramel notes on the nose. The taste of the beer was also on the sweeter side, the malts were nicely roasted also. The mouthfeel of this beer was decent but nothing too special. I could have had a little more body to it. Overall this beer was pretty good to me, I would like to have it again one day just to try it again.
