Coney Island Freaktoberfest

22oz bomber, $4.99 from Green’s on Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA.
As all have noted a bizzaro, Ribena colored body and a pink head. Head hangs around a little but not much lace. HAS to get a “5” for appearance (exceptional), not necessarily for the right reasons – this must be pure food coloring, isn’t it????
Grainy, vegetal, macro bitterness in the nose.
Also as others have noted, the color does tend to obscure tastes a little – odd, but it does. The brain plays tricks. As you look at the beer you expected a lager & black(currant) taste.
Some dry character and some metallic bitterness. DEFINITELY plenty of lager notes too. Cracker dry notes. Not really a hop bitterness rather a metallic coinage taste.
Easy drinking and not offensive are probably the best things I can say about this. Shmaltz is a better brewer than this would suggest.
