I think that everyone would agree that the term optimum means the best or the most appropriate. (Or atleast something close to that). If that is true then the term optimator should mean somebody or something that is the best or perfect for the situation. Probably everyone can agree to that... the problem is the beer that I have drunk this week turns this definition on its head. The name of the beer is the Optimator and it is, although drinkable, nasty. In fact my first sip made me cringe in near pain because of the bitterness. The smell from the bottle was pungent (in keeping with new word day) and the aftertaste was nearly as bad. I think I will be tasting it for a couple of days from now. And that does not make me happy.
Optimator is imported from Munich, Germany and is brewed and bottled by Spaten Brau, in accordance with the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot (Purity Law) of 1516. They did it right because it is 'pure' nasty. I am sure that Spaten brews much better beers but this beer is sub-par to many of the beers we have reviewed over the past few months. It is brewed from Alpine Water, though, how refreshing.
2 BBB's. It would have gotten a 1 except it did not make me throw up and it is edible. Dark beer drinkers may like it. The web sight is good visit it at: Spaten Brau.
