Bottled "Fall 2012"
A: Copper-orange in color with a fizzy, bubbly, eggshell white head that builds and fades quickly leaving behind little lace and retention.
S: Sweet, toasted malt with spices, some dark fruit, and a bit of hay/grass. Fits the season.
T: Delicious burst of sweet, sugary, toasted malt followed by a surprisingly fresh but faint hop presence. Very smooth and full of flavor with an enjoyable, dry finish.
M: Smooth, clean, crisp, refreshing, all with the right amount of carbonation to complement the flavors and body. Incredibly easy to drink.
O: I don't understand the less than favorable reviews this beer is receiving. Maybe there was a bad batch, maybe these people don't understand the style, or maybe there aren't enough hops? This style is meant to be malt-heavy. I was hesitant to buy this because of the reviews but this again proves that you must take reviews with a grain of salt. I expected Jack's Abby to get this style right, of all styles, because after all, German beers are their focus. And they did get it right. This is a great beer. And for the style (remember, that's how beers are supposed to be reviewed on this site), this gets high marks.
