Deeply darkened amber, browned orange haze. Dense finger high head of thick, creamy lightly tanned foam sits well before settling to a solid skim always present. Lace glazes the glass with an immense broken sheeting that cobwebs its way down.
Aroma is soft and subtle of whole grain bread doughy sweetness and a bit of toasted grassyness.
Taste is wholesome and firm with a nice tone of bready malts that favors a tender sweetness with a sliver of dullish fruity apple jam and quick little toasted edge of grains and poof of leafy hops.
Nice texture, very wholesome and bready rich with a firm medium/fullish body that holds an exceptional tone and lays out a very fun and subtle crescendo across the palate.
A pretty solid Altbier here, and at only 5.1% makes for a decent session beer.
