Score Sheet #3 - Judged by a Rank Pending judge and scored 33

Judge: Broan Robbins (b-robbins@comcast.net)
Judge Qualification: Rank Pending
Entry ID: 81874190
Style: 4C Schwarzbier
Beer Info:
Descriptors:
Bottle Inspection: All Good
Bottle Comments:

Aroma:
Low clean malt aroma, no hop aroma, no dms. Very low sherry/soy aroma suggests the beer may be getting oxidized. Clean, no fermentation esters.
8 / 12

Appearance:
Very dark brown approaching black, nearly opaque in the glass but clear when backlit. Moderate off white head of medium fine foam that persists.
3 / 3

Flavor:
Low clean malt flavor, low roast with a chocolate note. Very low spicy hop flavor. Med-low hop bitterness, when combined with the dark malt bitterness gives a very even balance vs malt. Clean fermentation, but a faint metallic note is present in the finish.
11 / 20

Mouthfeel:
Medium light body, moderate carbonation. Smooth, no dryness or astringency. No alcohol heat.
5 / 5

Overall:
A classic example of the style, but oxidized aroma and metallic flavor detract from what would have been an excellent beer. A clean, crisp dark lager with low malt and roast. Watch oxygen pickup when transferring beer post fermentation. Store properly a d serve fresh. Consider increasing late hop addition to increase hop flavors.
