Mikerphone Brewing Flip The Switch
What the brewers say
Imperial Czech-style dark lager.
What our panel thought
Mild aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, and hints of caramel meld with a floral hop aroma to create an intriguing nose. The flavor pits the caramel sweetness against the roasty bitterness, leaving the perfume-like Noble hop notes to negotiate a settlement. The denouement comes in the form of a truce with the only clear winner holding the glass.
What our editors thought
Crispy breadstick and caramel apple in the nose. The sip is soft with a gentle rolling sweetish chocolate-croissant feel. Indulgent without the cleansing bitterness. A dark lager for pastry beer lovers.
