Easygoing organically barley-malted Bavarian dark lager retains soft-watered flow, dewy earthen funk, and banana-browned fruit-dried nature to timid caraway-seeded rye-breaded spine. Amiable fig-date-prune sedation, reticent chocolate-covered raisin paucity, and meager chocolate nibs influence find space between. Likable light-bodied German beer may not have enough stylistic honeyed wheat efficacy but milder tastes will be appreciative.

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Jazz-fusion masterpiece, Bitches Brew, uncommon ebony-hued honey-brewed Imperial Stout-affiliated dark lager better defined as complex schwarzbier. On tap, shiny-leafed berry-like gesho influence affixes sarsaparilla flow to grain-seared cocoa-malted Baker’s chocolate frontage, tar-like hop-charred walnut-singed bitterness, and mildewed cellar-dwelled black grape dankness. Filmy black chocolate midst picks up espresso-milked Anisette reminder, spicy cardamom lilt, and gooey anise ascension. Rich port-bourbon wining fills out clean mocha finish. In bottle, kiln-smoked maple malting picks up chocolate-covered raisin …

Receding toasted oats border casual creaminess and musty earthiness as recessive raisin fluctuation dissolves under red fruited malt souring. Lack of hop assertion further hurts hazy golden Euro-styled lager.…

Sharp hop roast embitters sugary maple malt splurge, bruised orange endurance, and red fruited esters murmuring through fascinating Vienna-styled ruby-hued clear-bottled lager. Copper ale-like subtleties (faint nut, dusky mocha, tinny finish) absorb soft water crisping, mildewed earthiness, and dank charcoal-tobacco illusions.…

Musty sour yeast aroma, moderate hop bitterness, and dank cloy finish mark this light watery Armenian. Less bread-like than Rolling Rock but with a bitter Heineken-like aftertaste (minus the much needed malt pungency).…

Abhorrent 8.2% alcohol-fueled clear straw lager with uneasy initial skunked aroma and offensive cloying nature settling to soapy corn liquor-induced diacetyl flow nastier than shoddy American malt liquors.…

Garnet amber mediocrity brings dry nutty dalliance to caramelized crystal-black malt roasting and orange-peach-grapefruit tang. Similar to IPA 46 minus the piney protrusion.…

Delicious all-consuming coffee-hazelnut essence enamors nose, mouth, and gullet. Registered in U.S. as malt liquor due to feverish 7.8 % alcohol content, sweet Canadian bock coats the throat with uncommon maple-molasses richness.…

Monster movie cleavage queen Elvira provides promo for full-bodied lager. Overtones of holiday seasoning (nutmeg-coriander) and red ale fruitiness (apple-pear-peach) provide zesty burst of sweetness to simmering cocoa malting. Bad publicity initiated by former sponsor, Coors, and the black-attired vampress’ exposed cleavage at the Great American Beerfest hurt sales and production ceased by ’98.…

Indifferent tiny-headed barley-crisped moderation undermined by tepid caramelized malting and phenol hop undercurrent. Ultimately unassuming, considering German heritage. Doubtlessly defunct.

Limited edition winter brew lacks traditional seasonal traits, allowing sweet biscuit-y malts to drench bland wheat strand, tangy floral citric variable, and spiced hop restraint, but diacetyl finish lowers efficiency.…

Admirable chestnut-hued Kulmbacher-styled German knockoff offers sour yeast sinew, husked corn sweetness, and hop-dried roasted nuttiness to counter smoked chocolate bitterness. Caramelized mocha malting and veiled molasses creaminess lend latent full-bodied milk stout-like splendor.…
