$ 2.36 (Including tax and discount)/12 oz can ($ 0.197/oz) from Spec’s #100, DeZavala, San Antonio, TX. Reviewed 11/16/18.
“Canned on 10/25/18” on back bottom. On shelf in the store. Stored at 42 degrees and served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 4.
Body – Dark brown/black, opaque.
Head – Large (Maximum five cm, aggressive center pour), medium density, tan, good retention, slooowly diminishing to a two to three mm ring and partial layer. Head retraction leaves short pieces of lace, resembling hieroglyphics, of mostly tiny to small bubbles.
Lacing – Good. In addition to the above, volume reduction leaves five mm rings of tight lacing connected by thin columns and wide flows.
First pour – Medium brown, clear.
Aroma – 3.5 – Moderate spicy hoppiness.
Flavor – 3.5 – Begins with some maltiness balanced by some light hop bitterness. No alcohol (6.5 % ABV), no diacetyl, no dimethylsulfide.
Palate – 3 – Thin, watery, soft carbonation.
Impression and interpretation – 3.5 – Nothing really special about this one, other than claiming Reinheitsgebot. This is a very easy-drinking brew, totally unoffensive and unchallenging. It would be very easy to consume a six-pack at a sitting, which gives it a lot in common with most real German Reinheitsgebot beers.
