Midnight Session Lager

Midnight Session Lager = 6/10

Ratebeer 3.69 98th  percentile
Beer Advocate B+

This beer is as dark as my heart. You can probably guess what it smells like. You're right; roasted chocolate and pale grass. The sip has that roasted astringency up front with more alcohol warmth than you might expect. If you like it roasted, then this one will not disappoint. The top of the mouth tingles with wood, vanilla and over toasted whole wheat bread. It might have scored higher with less roast. Did I mention it was very roasty? At least it was better than the Pacific Western Schwarzbock. I'm still mad that they released that in cans after I bought the limited edition boxset!

Panzer Imperial Pilsner

Panzer Imperial Pilsner (Port Brewing)

Ratebeer 3.62 92nd percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +4

Wow, finally a pilsner I truly like. Big lemon grass nose with a little grapefruit. There is a great bitter IPA like start with tart grapefruits and resin. The bitterness just coats everything and barely hides the pale malt sweetness. The sweetness is like tropical fruits (pineapples).

Aftertaste +2

It was a long lingering of slightly astringent grapefruit.

Alcohol Content +1 9.5%

Value +1

This was great, like a strong IPA just switch the caramel malt for a paler variety.

Ingame Enhancement +1

No gaming tonight. We just watched Dead Snow, an epic Nazi zombie flick from Norway. I highly recommend it for zombie flick fans.

Overall 9/10

This beer is for those who love the hops, but want a little change of pace.
