Thanks to tectactoe for this 12 oz. bottle which disappeared into the time/space continuum of my beer fridge & just emerged tonight. If it's suffered from age I won't review it.
Pour is straight orange, sans pulp, opaque, dirty, very low carbed. Nose is loaded up with hot citrus, light breading, biscuity. Touch of herbs. Nicely interesting.
Howlin' Chinaski - what the hell does that mean? Don't taunt me. If you're going to name something Howlin' Chinaski, tell us a story on the damn label. The beer? Oh, the beer. Citrus is still prominent but the lager yeast is giving me lumpa-thumpas of breadiness & saltines. Dry & simple.
A beer to put at your left hand & quaff while you're eating pretzels or spatzle. Decent enough, but a bit too one-note for my sophisticated tastes.

Pours into a becker a dull light to medium golden with a thinner white head atop.Aromas of caramel/dough and some light toast,very bread indeed.Sweet dough dominates the flavor with some floral hops but they are light,more bread in the finish.A little sweeter than I expected but not a bad food beer.
