Beer #10

Xingu Black Beer
Amazon beer
Schwarzbier Style Guidelines

Aroma: Faint hints of chocolate and anise, sweet malt and brown sugar

Appearance: Dark red, pours thin brown head that dissapates quickly

Mouthfeel: light to medium

Flavor: Sweet, malty followed by a hint of hop bitterness ending with a sweet finish. I find some chocolate/anise flavors and some nutiness.

Overall: More red than black and virtually no head, but overall beer was clean with no glaring faults. A good representation of the schwarzbier style (see above at style guidelines). I could drink this as a session brew. A good clean lager beer with plenty flavor.
