The nose on the beer has a bit of hops to it with a nice toasty malt hint to it. There is a slight bit of dark malts as well. The beer pours with an inch head, and the beer has a dark copper colour to it. It looks incredibly clear with a fair amount of carbonation. There is a sweetness that comes out more when the beer is poured. The beer is sweet, bitter, and toasty. It's almost like an oktoberfest with a focus on complexity rather than drinkability. There is the usual lager crispness that is expected though. The sweetness tastes absolutely wonderfull. I'm really surprised at the great balace of the sweetness, bitterness, and toastiness, yet leaving some room for complexity. The mouthfeel is slightly creamy, but with a lot of carbonation. For the amount flavours, this beer is very drinkable.
