The aroma consists of apples, citrusy lemon and floral hops. The flavour is of apple, lemon, grassy hops and some sweetness. The alcohol content comes in at 5%.

Commercial Description: Oh man, this is the ocean of beers. Big, Dark and Endless. Once called Schwarzbier, we Canadians prefer Black Lager. Midnight Wheat with Pilsen and Dark Munich Malts make it genuine. Our fearless brewer dove into the abyss and arose from the depths with this great beer.
