Z is a Rauchbier. Not sure why it is called Z. My guess is, so it goes last on all beer review websites that are sorted alphabetically, but if so, people will scroll right past Z to Anheuser-Busch's Ziegenbock. As far as Rauchbiers go, like many American versions of classic German styles, this is weak. You can taste the smokey flavor of the malt, but it fades very quickly, and leaves behind a bland taste. Overall, I was not thrilled.
