I had a bottle of this today and came away modestly impressed. It is a Pils style, but I felt the maltiness lingered a bit too long and the beer didn't dry very well in the finish. Maybe a touch more attenuation or a touch more sulfate to help dry the finish. The hopping was interesting. The Sapphire hops were pleasant and add a winey character that generally agrees with the maltiness. Not a bad beer. I'd have it again, but I'm not sure that it can pass the 3 bottle test...I could not drink 3 of these, but I might be able to enjoy 2 bottles.
PS: The only thing black about this beer is the bottle. At least you won't have to worry about skunking in the package.
