San Miguel Dark Lager

Single from Total Wine @ Perimeter, Atlanta, GA, USA.
I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I “like” this beer, but what I will say is that it pretty much nails the style. Now, whether or not you consider that to be a good thing is a different question, but I suppose we should offer some credit!
Black pour with some significant orangy/red highlights. The color is fine bu the beer is quite badly let down by the lack of persistent head – it dies in the glass very quickly.
Obviously a sweetish, malt based beer with not much hop presence (if any) at all. Very malty all the way through with little other clear flavors. Perhaps a touch of bittering licorice but that’s about it. Some residual sugar on the tongue.
Finishes a tad musty and one is plenty.
