From the Emmaus Shangy pick 6.
LOOK: Pours a clear and lightly tinted amber with a bubbly near pure 2 finger white head in my Pilsner glass.
Head retention is a miss, as it fades quickly but does leave some significant side glass lace.
AROMA: Caramel malts, toasty bread malts prevail.
TASTE: Pretty much all malts. Sweet up front. Again, caramel and toasty bread.
Feel: Thin on the palate.
Finish is drying.
Beer was all right.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep amber/copper color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Fairly clean on lager flavors with some light estery off flavor notes present. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and lightly creamy/bready moutthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a solid vienna lager. All around good robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. No idea on age of this bottle; but some definite signs of age are there, with some off flavors from the yeast as well. Might be better when it’s fresh. A fairly enjoyable offering as it was.

L - Slightly hazy orange, copper color. Near white head that mostly dissipates after a short time.

S - Mild roasty caramel smell, little bit of hops but not much. Smells like an amber. Slight citrus.

T - Fairly bright flavor, but lacking a bit in richness. Slight metallic finish, but not the worst. Very approachable, but not much in the way of uniqueness.

F - Mouthfeel seems just right for the style, not too fizzy but just enough pop to tickle the tongue.

O - It's an amber... I would have been proud to homebrew this, but it doesn't have the perfect finish or creaminess of the best out there. Not bad, not excellent. The 5.8% ABV in the bottle I got from my liquor store owner friend was however not overpowering.

12 oz bottle into a mug.

Appearance: Pours a dark, almost murky copper color. The murkiness is a bit off-putting for a lager. The head is less than a finger high, and off-white in shade. With pathetic retention and no lacing left on the glass, this is not an attractive beer. (2.5)

Smell: Very strong malts - caramel, brown sugar, toast, toffee, dark fruit, and even chocolaty hints pop up. I wish it was hoppier, but it's not turning me off, either. (3)

Taste: It starts off with a caramel-laden sweetness, before transitioning into toasty finish. The back end also seems a little 'tart' - hardly like a sour ale, but maybe invoking some lemon/lime flavor, or a distant hoppiness. Pretty simplistic, like the nose suggested. Still, it works. (3.25)

Mouthfeel: While it's very malty, it's not oppressively heavy on the tongue. While it stops short of being really refreshing, it does go down easily. I don't seem to notice a lot of carbonation. (3)

Overall: The bottle invokes a "Mexican lager" vibe to it - and indeed, this brew would pair well with a good burrito, or tacos, or other things that made me wish I had a nearby street vendor selling the best Mexican food ever (oh well Californians, I have crabs). Would work well on a beach, too. Pretty average all told, but decent at doing those things I said. (3)

3.07/5: No está mal

12 ounce bottle - $2.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, toasted brown body with a small-sized, wispy, near white head.

Smell: Toasted malts with an instantaneous, distinct husky scent that grabs you, though not in a good way. A little wisp of herbal hops, though, there's little to the aroma beyond the huskiness.

Taste: Bready, lightly toasty malts with a noticed husky quality to it. Lightly sweet, with a low touch of caramel. Modestly fruity. Herb tinged hoppiness, also low, with little bitterness present. Encroaching wearying wateriness as you proceed to the empty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: A lacking, humdrum lager. No Mas.
