A schwarzbier, or, in other words, a German-style black lager. Oma’s Tribute has a beautiful rich, brown color with deep red undertones that appear when the beer is held up to the light. Even though this beer is dark, it is very crisp, with a light, clean finish (making it very easy to drink .) The black malt used during the brewing process give this beer its dark color, and a slight roasty taste. The hops are present in this beer, but definitely restrained.

On tap at the community oven Hampton. Pours a solid black color without much of a head. Roasted, earthy, and chocolate aroma and flavor. Medium full body with a silky mouthfeel and a moderate level of carbonation. Nice clean flavorful lager although served a bit too cold and also a bit pricey.

This particular style is not usually one of my favorites, but this one was not bad. I had this with fire-roasted pizza and it paired fairly well with the meal

Sampled at the brewery. All beers sampled here were above average. Purchased several bottles from the craft beer store down the street for further study. Will update these ratings after trying each one again from the bottle at home.
