Clear golden bronze color with a medium white head which dwindles to nothing. Slight bubbles to the top.
Toasty malt aroma, very German in style. Slight smoke and a lingering hop bouquet.
Malty body but not too sweet. Lingering smoke underneath seems to cut through the sweeter malts. The smokiness is not near as dominant as in their other offerings but instead provides a nice balance to the lighter body. Longer floral hop finish finishes the tasting.
The body provided balance and base to this offering. Medium carbonation levels seemed to give each ingredient a chance to show itself while creating moderate smoothness and drinkability. Fairly full body, esp. for the style.
This was fairly drinkable but I don't know if I could drink these all day or night. A nicer beer to enjoy but no thirst quencher. Very unique, definitely recommended.
