Picked up the bottle at FFF, no code dating, but batch is freshly released. Into the Samuel Adams perfect pint glass, while listening to Mumford & Sons (can't get this stuff out of my cd player!)
A - Rich straw-colored body, with less head than expected from a hard pour. Some lacing on the clean glass, with a bit less head retention than expected.
S - Pilsner malt sweetness is much more present than I expected from a FFF brew, with maybe just a hint of huskiness. Sulfur and metallic aromas help keep the aroma crisp, complimented by balanced (by American Standards... way to much hops for a BJCP program) amount of hops that express spice, resin, and bitter orange qualities.
T - Again, one gets a pretty assertive malt profile, but one more suited for a pilsener than a Dortmunder/Export. The hop profile is quite enjoyable, with much more of that herbal hop present one would expect from this style. The very dry, clean finish makes this brew fantastically quaffable.
M - This beer does have one of those great lager bodies, not watery, not overwhelming, but nice a "round". Carbonation was enough to clean the burger with salsa off my tongue and get it ready for the salad that followed, but it didn't feel like soda.
D - This is a fantastic lager, just a bit miss-categorized. It, like Flywheel from Metropolitan, is not quite a Dortmunder, not quite a Pils. It is, more importantly, a fantastically made lager: clean, refreshing, quaffable. It's price-point is probably it's worst characteristic. At $8 a bottle it's a bit much for a session beer, but if you can get it on draft, grab it, lager brewing at it's best.
Midwestern Lagers = The Best!
