Sits a pale gold with absolute clarity in the glass with a thin, delicate layer of head that clings to the glass. Tart pale malt, honey sweet aroma with unmistakable German lager phenols and sweet soapy acids. Walnut is in there somewhere and gets stronger as it warms. Tart, sweet, and bitter at the same time, but the bitterness lasts with a very mild flowery ester flavor. Banana ester is also in there with the nuttiness, which makes itself apparent with time. Medium body with a dry finish. Less filling, tastes great.
This beer takes me back to Munich and helps me understand why people like lagers. I can drink this all day and not feel full. No wonder the Germans stick to this style without complaint! If only the big three could make something close to this. Instead of just tasting like lightly flavored water, this has many subtle flavors to it, with different notes being played a little louder with each gulp. I'm pretty happy this is brewed an hour away from me in Berkeley. A trip to Deutschland is only a six pack away.
