Poured two fingers of head on a mostly clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is quite "grainy." Like sticking your nose into a grain silo. There's a little lemon in the background though.
The taste is wonderful, great balance. It has a big dose of bitterness upfront, then a big malt bill comes through. Finishes clean.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.

(purchased cold, no best-by or bottling date - poured into an Innis & Gunn fluted goblet)
A: slightly-hazy, but otherwise relatively clear, clean-looking amber liquid, topped with a buttload of foam... that foam stays standing for a good long while, opening up from the inside, receding down to a lovely marshmallow-y texture - the head is just fantastic!, though it does break up into lil islands on the way down... bit of lace to and fro
S: mild floral notes, Munich malt... toasty, lightly-spiced sugar cookie... a tad herbal, as in parsley, and classic leafy-floral German hops... smells like the base for many a' heartily-hopped 'malt-forward' west coast 'IPAs' in the range of yellow to red
T: interplay of elegantly bitter, leafy hop and moderately spicy-herbal yeast character, all atop a meaty malt foundation... I could see how one could call this a Maibock - the German hop flavor is apparent, while there's also an ideal level of clean alcohol flaming in the background - but the malt flavors are unmistakably American - graham-cracker, with a dusting of light caramel... the bitterness builds and is the last thing standing
M: kinda silky smooth, cut hard through by the bitterness... despite the voluminous head, there's only a modicum of bubbly tingle on the tongue... round, soft-felt-blankety flow
O: shit, probably only had this once or twice in the past 10 years, but this is pretty damn good - but I love bitter, malty, fullish beers, minus all the tutti-fruity nonsense... if you're familiar enough with Rogue's ales, you may very well peg this as one right away - that Pacman is quite distinct... we'll see what the price point on this is, but I could see drinking this more often
