Brilliant red oak color. Floral aromas and flavors of berry scone, raw blueberry juice, and marigold with a supple, bright, effervescent, fruity medium body and an even, carefree mixed berry sorbet, buttery shortbread cookie, raw apple cider, and waxy honeycomb finish. A nice fruity berry quaffer for picnics and beach coolers.

This category is, practically speaking, a catchall for beers that don’t fit neatly in an existing category. Flavored lagers may be flavored with, or affected by, the addition of unusual ingredients including chocolate, coffee, chili peppers or even juniper. In addition, the base beer may be related to almost any classic beer style. Given the variation possible in this category, there are no established standards for appearance, aroma or flavor. Instead, beers in this category are defined by a pleasing combination of the beer’s elements and overall drinkability. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Samuel Adams Chocolate Bock, Stiegl Grapefruit Radler and Burleigh Black Giraffe Coffee Lager.
