I was very happy when I finally had the opportunity to sample Pinkus Jubilate Dark Lager. This is not necessarily a rare beer, but distribution channels in my area have been so confused for the past few months that it's been difficult to get ahold of a wide variety of rather nice beers. Jubilate is a very pleasant brown with vague hints of red. From a distance, one might assume that it would have ruby characteristics when held up to the light, but instead it maintains its browness with a calm, steady confidence that is refreshing to find in a dark lager. The head is stark white, thick, and has a very nice, lasting retention, leaving a healthy lacing.
Try not to drink this beer too cold, as it mutes some of the excellent subtleties of its aroma. At first, I had a tough time smelling anything of substance, but after a few minutes of warming, I smelled plenty of nuts and yeast. As I continued drinking, the aroma became a pleasant, mouthwatering precursor to this delightful lager. It has a medium body with a pleasant effervescence, a slight tartness to it, and mild hop flavors.
This beer is incredibly drinkable and a very excellent example of a dark lager. As a bonus, Pinkus beers are organic. It certainly deserves all five of the stars I can offer it.
