In this beer blog, we are going to get into the Black Lager from Shiner Brewery. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Texas craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this little brewery can. Let us get into this beer.
It has a black color with a tan color head that disappears over time. There is no aroma to this black lager. The taste has a clean crisp like roasted malty notes. The aftertaste has a slight malty notes but still has a clean crisp finish like all lagers on beer market. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark
Here in Shiner, TX (population 2,070), we’ve been handcrafting beer since 1909. The passion of our original brewmaster, Kosmos Spoetzl, continues to inspire our efforts today. First brewed to commemorate our 97th anniversary, this Bohemian Black Lager remains true to the old-world heritage of the German and Czech immigrants who settled Shiner. Imported Czech Saaz and Styrian hops, and select roasted malts make this “Schwarzbier” our darkest brew yet. Prosit!
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I have been a pretty big fan of Shiner Brewery. When I lived in Chicago, I could find their beers everywhere. Since I moved back to Michigan, it is pretty hard to find their beers. I had to buy a sampler back which I am not complaining. I do not like the fact I cannot get more Black Lager and other brews. I like this black lager. There is not too many good Black Lagers in market. It has a nice balance and you can drink this in the hot summer days and of course the coldest winter days. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
