Beer Wednesday – Stegmaier Amber Lager

Happy Beer Wednesday!

Not too long ago, the Blonde and I stopped in the liquor store near my house so that she could pick up a bottle of white wine. While we were there, the owner, Mia, let me know that all of the beer on a table near the sure was just three dollars. There were a few six-packs, a pair of four-packs, and a lonely twelve-pack, by a brewery called Stegmaier, out of Wilkes-Barre, PA.

I’d never heard of Stegmaier, but a variety twelve-pack of beer for three dollars? That was too nuts to pass up.

My first pour was a little disappointing. I mean the amber color was beautiful, and the beer itself looked terrific, except for one thing. There was no head on the beer. None.

It was completely without head, but it wasn’t flat, thankfully. It had a light effervescence, almost like it was a little bit flat, but still pretty good once poured.

The flavors were a little boring, slightly hoppy with some simple malt. It wasn’t anything that seemed really special, but just kind of “beer,” you know?

There weren’t any flavors here that jumped out at me, just the most generic beer flavors that I could think of, so I can’t call this beer any better than ‘meh,’ which translates into a 3/6 on my six-pack scale. Perfectly mediocre.
