This interesting selection pours a very clear, brilliant gold with tons of tight rising carbonation. The soapy, egg shell white head holds well and leaves some decent, spotty lace. Certainly characteristic of a quality lager.
The aroma is primarily of yeasty malted grain and some coriander. Clean and bright but not terribly pronounced initially. Some honey and mild citrus really develop after a few whiffs and once the brew warms a bit. Very well pronounced eventually with some buttery, doughy, biscuit character. Not too shabby.
Wow, much sweeter and fruitier than expected. I though it would be a yeasty dim flavor but I must admit I'm pleasantly surprised. Lots of sweet honey and toasty malt. Definitely still yeasty but I think it really helps to mask the booze. Its tough to believe its 9.5% abv. Citrus, apple, and a bit of sour cherry is detectable. Lots of character and a hint of booze induced warmth. Smooth, mellow, and very well balanced. The caramel/honey sweetness really lingers too. I can see where this brew could go well with lobster; theres a definite buttery character in the flavor and the texture. Well done.
Clean but with a nice lingering buttery texture. The booze it well hidden and palatable. Moderate carbonation mellows the whole experience out a bit. Slick and a bit creamy in the finish. Extremely well crafted. I am impressed.
