Eisenbahn S.A.P.A. (South American Pale Ale)

12 oz single from Green's on Ponce, $1.99 for the bottle - pretty sure that they are just trying to shift this stuff since it has obviously been a very poor seller for them. Pour is quite an orangey golden one with a distinct lack of head, retention or lace. Makes the beer feel flat (although there is a little carbonation in the mouth) but overall lackluster. Has a bit of an adjunct, macro feel about it and quite where any elements of Belgian candy or yeasts are I don't know. The beer is...

Eisenbahn Dourada (Kölsch)

12 os single from Green's on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. Part of a big clearance that they have been having of these beers. The final one of the four 12 oz presentations (they have had Lust, too) that Green's have been carrying. Well, I dunno; Kolsch? I suppose that we can argue over the extendability of the style guidelines but to me this takes things a bit too far. The pour gives a color which I feel is too dark. It's really quite oraange. Secondly the malt dominance is just too great for me....

Eisenbahn Rauchbier

12 oz, $1.99 single from Green's, Atlanta, GA, USA. This is the Defumada, blue labeled, "Smoked Lager" presentation. Pour is quite frankly a beautifully colored, deep mahoghany color. The head, lace and retention are not good, but the color is very attractive. Nose surprisingly does not reveal any smoke. It just gives a light alcohol and some really dense, malty sweetness. The taste gives away the first hint of smoke. It's very subtle and to be honest the beer drinks more like a Doppelbock...

Eisenbahn Vigorosa (Weizenbock)

Unusual to find this as a single, 12oz bottle in Marietta, GA, USA. Batch #05. Pour is good looking with a nice, dense bone-white head with some nice lace. Body has a typical Weizenbock color - deep, bright brown with cloudiness from the lack of filtration. Nose has alcohol and bananas. Smooth, fruity, soft and delicate mouthfeel. Very slight alcohol bite in the finish which is consumate with the style. A tiny bit of bubblegum in the taste, with a touch of clove. Banana and other pulpy fruits...
