Extra in a trade with an awesome FL BA. Thanks Brandon!

Dark, darker than the orange blossom honey that was used to brew it. Forms a small half finger head which has practically no staying power. Lacing licks the edges of the glass leaving temporary marks.

I guess I didn't read the label clearly when I first poured this, honey soaked biscuits, orange starburst, spearmint, some lemon pledge and boozy. Label says 11%, wowza!

Thick simple syrup, molasses and caramel pile it on with a backing of honey flavor that oozes through the finish. Hops are a now show, a tickle of grass and husky grains with some balancing bitterness. Alcohol is sensed but the malt character in this lager is just too dominant.

Heavy, syrupy and damn near cloying at times, the large malt (not so much the alcohol) kills the drinkablility of this beer. The carbonation is very smooth...not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe hide the bottle and call this a barleywine and I'd be on the other side of the fence.

Ironically if this were called a wheatwine it would be rated probably alot higher and no one would bat an eye. Interesting aroma, hints of chemical and natural complexity, I really can't tell which. The flavor is golden when it comes to malt, with nothing else to balance and the honey just about crowns it. I just can't get past the fact that this is a pilsner and it 180s nearly everything I has hopes for when I cracked it.
