Pours a clear pinkish red with a light pink head. Aroma of bread, toast light caramel and grass hops. Taste is grassy hops, bread, berries, light pale malts and a nice bitterness throughout. Funky beer but better than most think.

Bottle. It is like a magic trick! Pours a ruby red grapefruit color with a thick pink head. Not at all what you would expect from a October marzen style brew. Has a slightly sweet matlzy with a hoppy after finish. Like all Schmaltz products, very surprisingly good!

YGTBSM! Looks like cherry soda, but thankfully doesn’t taste like it. Has a fairly sweet malty taste along with caramel and a substantial hop bitterness to round it off. I love Schmaltz products, but I’m a little indifferent to this one.

Not going to lie I bought way into the gimmick here. Come on, it’s (allegedly) 6.66% abv, that’s pretty cool. It pours this beautiful red color with a pinkish head. It has a very sweet fairly fruity aroma. Taste is fairly fruity with a hint of hops, it has a very schmaltzy taste to it if you know what I’m saying.
It’s a valiant effort to make a lager I’d actually want to drink and I am genuinely happy I had this.

This is an ok beer. I’m not a lager guy and I usually hate all lagers, but I don’t hate this one. The aroma is sweet and it kind of tastes like a beery kool-aid of some sort. It is blood orange and looks great, especially considering the theme of the beer.

Too mild for its own good. Bready and stale with a slick, stale body. Mild sweetness.

This one is from Shmaltz and I think it must have been put out in October for Halloween as it was in the clearance section.
When you pour it it’s quite red, even with my colorblindness it seems off. The head is all pink. Most definitely a Halloween beer! It’s quite sweet, I’d rank it just a tad below the sweetness of a Innis and Gunn. Some honey and malt. Other than the obviously fake color I kind of like the flavor. I might pick up some next season and try some more from Schmaltz.
