A very nice surprise at the Schmankerl Stube Bavarian haus in Hagerstown Maryland last night. I'm usually drinking the Hefe or Marzen. Schmankerl has changed over to Spaten recently, as well, and I guess I'd just never gotten this one, on-tap.
A= very nice luscious rich-golden, with a white medium head foam typical of a lager.
S= very very nice on the nose, or maybe it's just what I happened to be looking for-- a good old traditional lager with some whiffs of sweet malts and traces of grassy notes with a complimentary presence of hops, in-balance.
T= an interesting bouquet in the first instant-taste, pronounced and yet not intrusive, followed quickly by a splash of honey sweetness, then all of it seeming to combine into a combined-wholeness. Nice carbonation, medium rather than tiny bubbles and yet not an over-amount of filling carbonation. Goes down nicely, didn't leave me feeling belchy.
M= very nice, clean, and it went well with the entire meal from bread to goulash to salad to sweet-sour Sauerbraten and everything in between.
D= totally drinkable.
