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.
Obliging Schwarzbier places oily coffee motif above sharp walnut bittering and smoked hop char. Roasted grain foundation seizes black chocolate expansion, black cherry puree distension, and faraway anise illusion.
Very settling with slight grain bitterness and relaxing hop bite. Sweet mocha malts and fading coffee finish offer subtle pleasantries American lagers often lack.
Jersey microbrew made with German hops and malts too bland and processed to compete with serious Bavarian competition; lacking full-bodied depth and complexity. Initial unassuming aroma hides dirty grain core as fizzy carbonation overwhelms dark chocolate residue. Brewery defunct: 2002.
Silken caramel-wafted bubbly-fizzed dark lager layers honeyed wheat sweetness above yellow fruiting of copper-hued tan-headed moderate-bodied German. Perfumed hops, satiny fruits, and clove spicing reach soft crystal malt finish, providing uncommon lilt.
Spotty prune-fig confluence picks up considerate dark caramel- toffee-butterscotch continuance as slightly syrupy nature recedes to blank mocha grained finish.
Simply combines toasted oats, roasted barley, and sweet wheat in subtly hopped mild manner consistent with brewers’ finer Honey Almond Lager. Unassumingly rewarding.
Unique in every way, one-of-a-kind Cordial little-neck bottled Mexican porter, surprisingly brewed at tequila distillery, retains deep mahogany body, musty dried fruitiness, and earthy semblance. At finish, dark chocolate bittering infiltrates black licorice snip and barren fig-date lick for peerless peculiarity.
Slinky mahogany-hued frothy-headed Czech lacks richness, abates sour coffee signature, and gets mired in phenol frailty. Yet roasted nut restraint, dark chocolate nuance, and strewn cocoa notes appear when warmed.
