Furthermore Brewery: Oscura Mexican Coffee Lager

Oscura Coffee Lager
Furthermore Brewing Co. 
PO Box 776
Spring Green, WI 
23. Specialty Beer

Aroma: (10/12)
Light coffee aroma.  Some hops, but subdued.

Appearance: (2/3)
Nice light brown color. The head is one
fingers' width that descends fairly quickly.

Flavor: (16/20)
Very nice coffee flavor.  Not over-done,
but compliments the beer. The coffee
works well with the underlying Mexican
Lager style without envoloping it.  Flavor
matches aroma, exactly.  Flavor does
seem to fade quickly from the tongue.

Mouthfeel: (4/5)
Body is light, almost a Newcastle Brown
mixed with pressed coffee.  Could drink a
few of these, not heavy at all.

Overall Impression: (8/10)
This beer is well done, although I would like
to see more body, but that is just my opinion-
so I will only rate what is in front of me and
not my wishes.  A nice light brown lager with
coffee flavor.  My burps taste more like coffee
than the actual flavor while drinking it; nice.

TOTAL: 40/50
