Brilliant golden yellow color. Citrusy aromas and flavors of lemon-lime soda and ginger ale, lemongrass scone, and lime leaves with a silky, bright, fizzy, light-to-medium body and a smooth, medium-length finish with nuances of buttered toast, melon, and Arnold Palmer finish. A nice, super crushable, lemony summer beer.

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.
