Fischer Brewery's Amber Lager

This beer obviously appealed to me for the swing top cap and it's ABV (6.0%) however upon first smell, I was thinking "Why's this dingus beer smell like wine?" I took a sip and thought, "Why's this dingus beer taste like wine?" You know the old saying, "If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck; it's a duck." But this is still beer, just beer that tastes and smells like wine. Well, I mean it doesn't TASTE like wine, it tastes like beer, with wine in it. White wine! Also known as "the bad kind of wine". The "brewery" was founded in 1821 moved around to areas with better water and in 1986 it was bought by, you guessed it, Heineken. Heineken later said they were going to close the brewery and make this swill in some other brewery in the same shitty, i mean city. I have no qualms with France, I love their fries, but this is a tough pill to swallow. This is most definitely not a beer drinker's beer.

Like I said, it has the acrid taste and smell of a white wine. The taste seems slightly watered down and does not have a lasting taste in your mouth; which is actually the best thing about this beer. If the taste was lasting I might have to spill it out. I'm not saying this beer is horrible, it just does not, at all, appeal to my taste buds. It sort of reminded me of when my buddy made an Habanero IPA and it literally tasted like donkey dick soaked in pickle juice. I mean it isn't THAT bad obviously but I would NEVER buy this again.

If you like a winey taste to your beers this might be up your aisle. It still is very carbonated and a decent bargain, as I paid 4 bucks for a doubledeuce (22 oz'er) and, like I said, it's 6.0% ABV so it isn't like you should drink to of there and drive to your AA meeting.

Drinkability: 3/10
Taste : 3/10
Value: 5/10
Curb Appeal: 4/10

Overall: 3.8/10
