On-tap at Oggi’s Vista. Pours dark brown with orange/red highlights, big off-white head, sheet lace. Smells like Lipton instant iced tea mixed with dark malts and lager. Tastes like Lipton instant iced tea with dark smokey malt flavors and some citrus. Medium, smooth body, smooth carbonation.

Draught No head to speak off, dark, nearly black beer. Sourish nose, lactic, just a bit of dark malts. Sourish start at every sip, not right, IMO. Some dark malts, a little (dry) bready, but just out of style. Dry, but very carbonated. I’m not in the habit of complaining stylewise, but a sour Schwarzbier?
