Ugly Pug is a schwarzbier, or black lager. But the real story is its name. Fritz saw his mother-in-law’s pug, Oscar, lounging in a chair and he (Fritz) shouted, “What an ugly pug!” Everyone laughed. Your’re right – they were drinking a test batch that night.

pumpkin (28) - Apex, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2013
Color is brown and red with small white tan head that fades pretty quick. Smell of malt caramel peeper and slight smoke. taste is light bodied, fairly light carbonation, taste is a lot different then smell thin light malt and roast taste with a chalky dry roast finish. Still not bad as it warms.

TXBadger (2001) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Pours a dark brown color with tannish colored head. Roasted malts and a little raw cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with roast, and smooth.

944play (378) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Draft at Hoffbrau Steaks, Amarillo. Diamond bright chestnut with mere wisps of foam. Served very cold, so scant licorice and metallic aromas barely make it out of the glass. Garden variety gingerbread malt structure and a fermentation character that prints a bit homebrewy are not overly impressive. Big body for a sessionable lager.

Black thick beer. Not a stout but great sipping flavor. Not great mfor after soccer, not what I would call refreshing. However a really enjoyable sit back brew.
