Pouring from the bottle to the glass, the head poured smoothly but quickly disippated into almost nothing. Slight lacing in the glass as I drank.

The heavy malt-forward aroma was sweet on the nose and pleasant to experience as opposed to getting ram-rodded with hops. The mouthfeel was creamy but not heavy; this beer would fit in nicely with a nitro tap.

The malt taste was bready with some slight hints of mild fruit (probably esters). A sweetness pervaded every sip.

Easily sessionable, this beer was way more than expected. It's complex in its simplicity and it's brave to stand against the current hop trends. Truly a fantastic session that pays homage to Schmalz' "could give a shtick" style and to us fewer recognized malt-forward beer lovers.

Bought a single as part of a mix six pack at World Market in Round Rock, Texas.

Poured a murky amber copper with medium head that slowly dissipated leaving little to no lacing...a nice little ring of head remains for the duration

Getting some sweet malts with caramel...maybe a bit of drak fruit and baked bread as well. Not too shabby.

Taste follows scent...lightly sweet upfront followed by hints of caramel, sweet bread, and a touch of hops at the end. Not bad, but a bit pulled back. Fairly easy drinling...medium bodied with a nice finish

Another good effort from Shmaltz. A pretty approachable American Amber.
