812. New York: Lederhosen

After leaving The Blind Tiger David and I headed to Lederhosen for dinner and German beer. We must have had more beer at The Blind Tiger because I was fairly inebriated by the time we arrived. I had the Zigeunerschnitzel for dinner, I don't remember what David had though.

Overall: 4.05

Pours a deep black with a thick brown head that clings to the side of the glass. The aroma is surprisingly light: biscuity malt, a hint of fruit and light roastiness.

Malty throughout, bready, toasty and lightly sweet. The finish has a nice mild roasty bitterness. Mild, but impressive. High carbonation, light to medium-bodied.

Incredibly drinkable. Mild but still flavorful.
