I know its a lager and its supposed to be served cold. But its 17° outside and Im wondering if stepping in for a cold one wasnt the best idea Ive had this week. My pint arrives disturbingly cold, leaving me with little to do but sit and wait for it to warm a bit, wondering why the Germans designated two times of year to enjoy a marzen and Fishs January serving doesnt coincide with either of them.
No matter. A good beer out of season is better than a timely bad one. And theres nothing here to suggest this dark copper beer is all that traditional. Its taste touches upon biscuit malts with a generalized blandness lacking any discernable hop statement. Theres great clarity in the body, but not in the taste. And while some lace managed to appear, this lager came with no head and no smell.
Not a bad beer, but not inspiring either. The taste makes a statement of intent but doesnt really follow through. Oh well, at least it comes with an umlaut.
