A locally brewed "schwarz"...why the hell not?

This one pours a dark brown with a bit of ruby red if you hold it up to the light. A half inch light brown head rises, then slowly dissipates, leaving some streaky lace.

Getting some decent nutty roasted malts on the scent. I like. Smells fresh and clean.

The roasted malts certainly are evident in the taste. Maybe even a bit of bitter coffee...but very little. Just a super easy drinking, low abv beer that would be a great choice to offer folks in Texas a "light" dark beer. Hell, I'd call this one a good hot Texas summer beer.

Nice job with this one Austin Beerworks! Offering up a good, drinkable, unique style brew is always a welcome choice.
