For this particular beer, I'll be using a speciality glass that Sam Adams brought out especially to use with this beer, which is apparently a half-sized maßkrug. That in mind, it should be a pretty interesting experience.

Pours a quite lively head. Color is a lively amber. Smell is quite intense for a lager, which is always nice.

First sip is wonderfully drinkable. You really get the full malt character coming through in this beer, with just the slightest hint of alcohol on the back pallet.

If I go back all the way to where I really started trying different beers other than light lagers, this one was the absolute first that I ever tried. Years later, I can reflect back and say that it wasn't that bad of a foundation to start off with.
