Day #203 – Rahr & Sons Ugly Pug

July 23, 2011

I’m out at the Rahr & Sons brewery today and I feel this is the perfect opportunity to feature another one of their beers! It’s hot as hell and I could sure use a refreshing beverage.

Rahr & Sons Ugly Pug


The Ugly Pug is part of their year round line-up and is one of their flagship beers. It is named for Oscar the pug, who unfortunately passed away earlier this year due to ugliness….or old age. It is a Schwarzbier listed at 4.75%.

Yum! This is one of my favorite easy drinking beers from Rahr. It pours a dark dark brown color with an off white colored head.

Aroma is roasted malts, toasted notes, light coffee and chocolate. Very nice smell.

Flavor is a mixture of roasted malts, toasty chocolate and smooth tasting grains. A standard no doubt.
