12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very pretty amber/mahogany color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Nice and malty up front, giving off notes of freshly baked pretzels or French baguettes. I get some notes of brown sugar and black pepper, as well as some floral notes of clover and hops.

Taste: Very good! Tons of malt up front, with notes of freshly baked bread, followed by some caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness, black pepper, a touch of orange and finished by some beautifully balanced hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 4.5%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is an excellent amber/Munich/Vienna lager! Malty, sweet, slightly hoppy, beautifully balanced. Highly recommended!
