1/6/12 Heineken Dark Lager

So I have still been drinking but I have not got to write as much. I have had 6 beers I haven't gotten to write about that I have had in the last week or so. Most were at parties so they were a little hard to review and the other one I had filled up a sheet for but misplaced it before I could type it out. I also have been working late making it hard to get on and type anything out. I did have all the beers out of the Heineken variety pack and I'm going to try and get reviews written for them as soon as possible. Last night I had the Heineken dark lager with some black bean chips and salsa. The temperature was a nice 38.9 degrees with a large 3 1/2" head with a medium brown foamy appearance. The head lacing was excellent and the head dissipated really slowly. There was no carbonation and a normal clarity with a ruby color. The aroma was wheat smell with a toasted coffee with a hint of honey taste. The flavor was moderate and the finish was short. The mouth feel was dry with a front tongue hit and good body lacing. Overall I would rate it an A- and probably my favorite out of the variety pack. It was something different and not what you would expect from Heineken. Thanks for reading and as always drink responsibly.
