COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Aroma: wet newspaper and metal shavings, grassy hops, mineral water, light chalk and roast. Taste: light chocolate and pumpernickel toast, mineral water, grass, cardboard. Finish: dry, with flavors of talc and wet grass. Notes: Looked pretty, smelled lousy, tasted average. Bottle from Buddy’s (Drive Thru) Beer Barn in El Paso, Texas.
