From my brother, Duane. Thanks, buddy. I really wanted to like this beer. I like the idea of an older non-AB brewery in Shiner Texas. But I was disappointed. The beer does not have a good aroma. A little like maraschino cherries, perhaps. There was a very small head with no retention of lacing at all. The taste had a burnt tone but primarily it tasted like cardboard. Texture was very watery with almost no carbonation. It was not pleasant. Cold or warm it was not good, Perhaps it was old.

A: Motor oil dark. Amber hints when I hold it up to the light.

S: Fairly neutral aroma, which is surprising given the roast flavor notes.

T: Uncomplicated schwarzbier with a great roasted aftertaste. Crisp on the front end. This would be a good introduction to the style since it isn't too in your face.

M: Slightly syrupy when it warms up a little.

O: Enjoyable, but it's a little too heavy for me to want another one but it wasn't heavy enough to be noteworthy.

Bottle from the mixed 12 pack
Pours a solid dark brown with faint ruby highlights at the edges and a smallish off white head that quickly dissipates to nothing. Aromas of caramel and burnt sugars with just a hint of chocolate and a faint earthy hop to counter. The flavor is malty sweet with lots of darker sugars and melanoids and just a hint of earth, chocolate, and light fruit. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent dark lager, probably my favorite from the mix.
