This deep mahogany Euro-stle lager has a nice balance of malts and hops, which lend to a full flavored body and mild aroma. It has a pleasantly malt-fruity palate, with touches of chocolate, and some hoppy bitterness coming through at the end.

    Pours clear iced tea color with a thin white head. Aroma is barley and malt. Not much there. The taste is bland, but in a good way. This beer goes down way too easy. Very mild carbonation in the mouth. Taste is a tad malt and barley. It’s not great, but when you’re thirsty it hits the spot.

    Dark amber pour with a thick off white head. Real nice malty taste to it with subtle caramel flavor and nice amount of sweetness. Finally a good beer from Berghoff!

    Hardly a resemblance to Guinness, this beer pours a faint clear black body, with a nice soft tiny tan head. A wonderful vanilla aroma stays around and the mouthfeel is very light. For a dark beer, this could change the minds and tastebuds of many, because its so easy to drink.

    Similiar to Guiness, actually i would take this over guiness, same taste and feel, maybe a little thinner but not much, definatly a repeat on my list of beer

    This Vienna pours a medium dark brown color from a 12oz bottle. Medium to small sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel and fruity, a touch sweet. A light to medium bodied Vienna. Malts are caramel and fruity, a touch cider-ish. Carbonation is rather flat. A touch bland, thin and watery. I think this s more an effect of the thin carbonation than a flavor flaw, but still kind of boring. Nice roasty malt flavor. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    This lager pours a dark brown with a good dose of malts and hops making it full in body and aroma.It is somewhat malt-fruity in its mouthfeel palate, some chocolate some hoppy biterness at end

    Pours with an amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with little lacing. It’s sweet, malty and caramelly with a slight candy sugar note. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

    Pours a deep, drak amber brown color, with little head, and low effervescence. Smells sweet; oddly has a fruity and dry aroma, with woody notes coming through. Mouthfeel is a little thin, but not too bad. Flavor is a little dry, with coffee-like flavors and something else that I cannot quite place...reminds me of a cigarette (or more precisely, an ashtray). I am not real pleased with this one, but at the same time, it is not horrid (just a little different)!

    This beer is just yummy, you will want to chew it. The maltyness of this beer is so deep that it comes across as a chocolate treat. I'm no beer reviewer, but I had to recomend this beer to my fellow hop heads. For the fair price the flavour of this tipple is fantastic.

    Dark red/brown in color with a nice head that held up pretty good and a toasty malt nose. Medium bodied with chocolate, coffee and butterscotch flavors and a dry finish. Similar to their bock but drier, crisper. A good dark lager and reasonably priced.
