Festive brown-bodied tan-headed dark lager retains emphatic roasted chocolate sweetness as infectious butterscotch creaminess, powdered cocoa suggestion, and tobacco leaf illusion deepen Scotch malt proclivity. Smoked wood sedation intensifies thick brown-sugared black molasses resilience to sticky hard-candied finish for slow sipping dessert treat.
Red-tinted creamy-headed dark beer with 5.5% alcohol content, thin buttery malt texture, delicate hop bite, and sugared blandness. Unspecific golden ale fruiting or red ale toasting kicks in after few swallows, but lack of prolonged finish hurts resolve.
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.
