Doctor Diesel Lager Beer

Company PIT Brewery

Russia

Probably the most poorly named beer I've ever had. Doctor Diesel? WTF? It sounds like a malt liquor from hell, and all their ads should have a bunch of gang-banger types sitting around a hoopty-mobile with the hydraulic shocks and the back seat taken up by a giant speaker, and all they say is "Oooh yeah, bitches." Amazingly enough, it's like a name/quality paradox. I fully expected this to be one of the suckiest beers out of the thousand that we've reviewed, and instead found it quite good. It had a lemon flavor, similar to one you'd find in a wheat beer, but it's clearly malted barley all the way. It comes in a half-liter bottle at 6.9% abv, but you really wouldn't know it. It has flavor, body, some alcohol, overall a decent lager. Don't let the name fool you, it's a session beer but still a decent beer. Bitches.
