Nose: bready, yeasty over spicy Munich malt with some hop spice mingled in, faint cooked vegetal.
Pours brilliant gold under a dense 2" finely bubbled foam cap, lacy.
Palate: Initial malty sweetness followed by alcohol, fresh grains, faint grass, bready malt, malt spice and a light hop touch.
Very smooth and creamy medium full bodied beer with just below medium carbonation. Warming.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a semi-cloudy, golden color with an eighth of a finger of white-colored head that immediately dissolved away into some wispy clouds of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department, except for some very faint notes of toasted malt and caramel.

Taste: Quite a lot of flavor though. Lots of toasted malt up front, imparting notes of freshly toasted pretzels or English muffins, followed by lots of caramel-like sweetness, and a touch of piney hops at the finish. Very, very good!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and very, creamy, as there is hardly no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 8.0%, I’m surprise at how little alcohol is on the palate, like none at all.

Overall: This is a very good beer. Good, malty and sweet flavors wrapped up in a very smooth, creamy quaff. Delicious!
