What a flavorful beer that will knock you out. You can drink several of this one without getting too intoxicated and it keeps its flavor profile as well. Nice mouthfeel, robust, and just an overall enjoyable beer. The label calls this one an amber lager ale. So its more of an ale with a lager style. I like this. Its an Altbier, I have had only a few of this style from my knowledge, but this is a beer that would seek out in the future.

Nice head retention. Beautiful copper/brown color.

Malty, yet, enough hops to make it interesting. I think this might be my new go to beer. It is a beer that will not kill you on the booze but still maintains enough balance. Perfection. I just wish I could find it more readily available.

From a nice trade with Herr Burgess, I get the opportunity to sample an out-of-towner.

22 ouncer Bottled on 12/30/11.

A -- Clear, orange-copper with a dense, long-lasting, off white head.

S -- Sweet, rich, bready malt with a mild nuttiness back.

T -- This is an interesting beer because it starts with a mellow spicy bitterness then folds into sweet, bready to nutty malts and then comes around again to the bitterness in the finish. In-between the breadiness and the bitter finish is a mild caramel, even vague fruitiness that is very appetizing.

M -- Mouthfeel is smooth to crisp with a medium body.

O -- Overall, this is a terrific drinking beer. The balance between maltiness and bitterness is quite good without a clash of flavors as can often happen in an American Brown Ale, and the cleanliness of lagering a top-fermented beer smooths out the character nicely. A great rendition of the style.
