Two small beers from big brewers
Playboy magazine recently presented as though it were an article on micros a piece I wrote about specialties from the national brewers. My point was that, judged on their terms, some of these are pretty good beers. Two that came too late for the Playboy roundup, both brewed in the U.S. by Miller:
* Lwenbräu Premium Pils: Good, fresh, earthy, hop aroma. Lively pour; good bead. Soft, very smooth, body. Creamy malt flavors. Light, late, hoppy dryness in the finish. Seems to me to have a smoother malt character and less upfront hoppiness than its German counterpart (which I have not tasted recently).
* Lwenbräu Märzen: Medium to full amber color. Big head. Very good sweet malt aroma. Firm, almost chewy, maltiness. Good depth of caramel-toffee malt flavors. Quite big, clinging, maltiness in rounded, dryish, finish. Darker and chewier than my recollection of its German counterpart.
