My prejudice against German beers is also valid for those from Austria, even though that is where my mom’s side of the family is from. So my uncle had a fridge full of Gosser for Thanksgiving, which is the popular generic pale lager of the homeland. There was a little hops, but it was pretty much as bland of a beer as you would expect from a pale lager. Thumbs down.
Much later that night, I was still full from the Thanksgiving feast but felt like opening up my bomber of Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. The name was pretty self explanatory: the hazelnut flavouring is added and the nectar part was apt – this beer is really sweet. Perhaps is was because of my full stomach that the sweetness was sickening (or maybe it was because For Your Consideration is a truly bad movie), but I couldn’t finish out the bomber. The overall effect of the hazelnut was a really syrupy taste and not so much the nuttiness. The last bit got poured down the drain, which is a rare occurence.
