Pours a clear light amber with a frothy, dense inch and a half light khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of spotty lacing.
Notes of caramel and buttery toffee are offset by a metallic tang in the initial aroma. Brown sugar, doughy malt, booze, and light floral hops round out the profile. Figs and dates emerge as it warms.
Flavor reveals fruity esters at the base, with cherries and dark berry notes accompanied by toasted malt and slightly sweet caramel notes. The finish is fairly dry and lightly bitter. Feels a little short.
Body is on the full side, with moderate carbonation and slight alcohol warmth.
Not at all what I expect from a helles. Esters are way too high. Hop flavor is lacking, but bitterness is about right

11/09/11 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Far better on tap than from bottle. Bordering on the crisp side. Hops are well under control and there is a slight apricot in the sweetness. In a word, a classy glass...Oops, that was two words, but you get my drift.
Serving type: on-tap
