Thanks Mora2000 for this scary beer. Smells alcoholic. I can’t get much flavor out of this other than alcohol. Pretty bitter and female-unfriendly. You’d only want to drink this if you were fist pumping with your boss.

Sammer (1025) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Golden pour from bottle shared by Mora2000. Lasting white head. Taste and nose is earthy, rye and somewhat sweet, with notes of bread, leaves and alcohol. Malty finish, with some pine. Interesting, and pretty darn good.

10 ounce goblet - $7.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Dispensed into a simple-looking, everyday goblet a near clear, light copper body with a finger of off-white head. Smell: German malts in the aroma, primarily good ole pilsner, with some grainy hints and a touch of honey. Citrusy, spicy, mildly floral hops. A few traces of nose tingling alcohol. Taste: Pilsner malts in the fore with a toasted barley character and sweet hints of honey bear-type honey and golden syrup. A shock of earthy, spicy hops, then a splash of neutral grain spirits, then a citric hoppiness and a solid dose of bitterness. Peppery alcohol tones precede the dry, weighty, bitter finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus, languid body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: So many amped up lagers these days, what gives? The alcoholic nature of the brew and the cumbersome body make it a task to finish, even at only ten ounces. Though, with more and more of these imperialized pilsners hitting the market, it is pretty much the norm for the style.

Bottle thanks to Andy
Hazy gold pour, fluffy white head with scattered lacing. Watery grain nose of bubblegum, wheat, and corn, overly sweet and a bit. Medicinal flavor up front, the alcohol and sweetness present, a bit nicer and more biscuity in the back. Oily palate, hot and with almost no finish. Not a fan of this.
