Smoky cured meat aroma and Band-Aid mouthfeel give inceptive prickly-hopped tongue a peppery spicing, but girding beechwood seasoning depletes barley roast. Instead, piquant amber lager settles to sudsy cocoa-chocolate malt frailty.
Deep black cherry ripeness increases wintry nutmeg-cinnamon essence for rich holiday treat. Orange-bruised clove-coriander spicing underscores insurgent stewed prune penetration, pecan-pied raisin-fig sequence, and honey-glazed finish, retaining confectionery medicinal deluge.
Musty malt-scented, golden brown-hued, sweetly caramel-malted brew slips down the throat with gentle velvety smoothness. Mocha moderation fends off slender hop toasting, negligible barley roast and raspy coffee snip.
Amiable chestnut-hued brew retains mild turbidity as affluent cascading brown bubbles surface at fleshy head. Unrefined grain nose, muted sugar malt assertiveness, tobacco-stained docility, and cocoa butter creaminess settle into ripe cherry-orange fruitiness before rich raisin finish adds thicker luster.
Off-dry amber-coppered German-styled dunkel lager retains easygoing dry Scotch appeal. Roasted nut-grain subtlety and candied malt creaminess pick up tobacco-cocoa reticence before orange-grapefruit ripeness conveys appealing sourness.
Earthen peat-soiled garnet-cleared lager retains nut-roasted brown ale-like styling and mineral-grained purity. Strange vegetal-soured matchstick nose consumes toasted barley base and pumpernickel-rye slip to no ill effect.
Mellow ruby-maroon Munich dunkel-styled lager provides frisky hop nose to dominating chocolate malt sweetness. Cola nut illusion found amongst toasted barley seam.
Despite thick brown-hue, cocoa-dried moderation lacks expectant malt-saturated richness. Instead, its roasted barleymalts, chocolate subtleties, and trim hop din drift off to a nebulous mocha finish. Buy a porter instead.
Ashy-tongued maltose-scented dark lager gathers dirty grain penetration, dry raisin mandate, and flowery hop bitterness to silky pale chocolate finish. Recommended to brown ale or light porter fans, but also worthwhile for Bud/ Miller/ Coors lunkheads as effervescent upper crust alternative.
Musk-y malt-scented amber-paled lager garnishes sugary butterscotch sweetness and glutenous sticky rice follow-up with buttery dry-hopped oats-toasted finish. Not bad for mass marketed mainstream fodder.
Tantalizing mahogany-hued foamy-headed Norwegian holiday treat furnishes flowery yeast proclivity, sour malt intrigue, and nutty caramel sanctuary with explosive carbolic upsurge. Clove-spiced cherry, date, and prune illusions add wintry luster to smooth barleywine finish.
Canned pale lager suffers from phenol alcohol temperament and bland maize-grass-hay concurrence. Dry wheat bottom, lilting lemon hint, and brisk carbonation cannot overcome slick template.
