otxbc.com

Style: Kellerbier / Zwickelbier

Notes / Commercial Description:
Enchanting. Ethereal. Fleeting. Is that a woman in the distance, or are your eyes playing tricks on you? Luchesa Lager is brewed in the traditional German Kellerbier style, where subtle malt notes marry with assertive Hallertau and Saaz hops. Like a mirage, your empty glass will leave you wondering: “Was she ever really there?”

Typical lager. Don't see anything special here.

Bready, Fruity, Herbal, Biscuity

Drops out of the can a bit hazy—as expected since it's unfiltered—with a clingy foam head. The nose is bready, fruity, slightly floral and enticing while the mouthfeel is a bit gritty and chewy with a soda-like carbonation. More fruitiness on the tongue is followed by a permeating, underlying herbalness, suggestions of tangerines and stone fruit flesh and a malty sweetness that fades into a bready, biscuity finish along with an herbal linger. You don't see many Kellerbiers in the market, let alone canned versions. That fact and this Texas lager are both good things.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #105 (October 2015).

Hazy gold. Great clean lager nose; bready malts and gentle, floral hops. Lightly sweet malts, floral hops, VERY solid bitterness. Dry finish with a long, lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Crisp and light. Awesome beer.

Purchased at specs in Katy. No enjoy before date. Think it's skunky and past its prime. Poured into pint class with basically no head. Flavored are okay, but flat.
