Notes / Commercial Description:
MIX TAPE 2!!! Let’s keep our simple session lager game going. This time let’s play with your illusion. This one is black but as tight, dry, crisp and light as those game-watching yellow beers you love. Germany’s mix of new winey-hop-pops lacing some light cola tones, with an ash touch to the dryness. Dem schwarz skills son. Your turn (|>)

This is a terrible example of a Schwarzbier. Pretty much everything about it is incorrect to style.

As a “dry hopped black session lager” as it is advertised, I suppose it could be alright in its own way, but its not for me.

The flavor has a floral and white grape like taste on top of a cola. Both in flavor and feel. Very crisp, carbonated, and thin/watery. A little ash/char in the end.

I would describe this as a hoppy Coke.

I love schwarzbiers, so I’m really excited to try this. The pour looks like it came from a bottle of Coca Cola from the old green bottles. I can give no greater compliment.

Light smoky notes on the nose as well as earthy malt notes give way to flavors that feature the smoke and malt notes on PED’s, which is astounding given the 4% ABV.

This is truly a pleasure to drink.
