I'm always incredibly impressed with the appearance of this beer when poured into a properly clean glass. I mean, really impressed. That doesn't happen very often with any lager. This pours a perfectly toned amber chock full of small, energetic bubbles and a thick, tall, fat, chunky,mountainous, incredible head. I mean, a lot of beers claim good retention - this one wrote the book on head retention. Every single time I drink it, bottle after bottle, the head is the last thing that I tip into my mouth because there's always at least a half inch left when I get to the bottom. And the lacing? Don't get me started. It looks like styrofoam plastered to the glass in rings of incredible thickness - up to 1/4" thick, hanging like white pumice.
Big ol' caramel malts, soft beery alcohol, and grassy hops - it's basic, but so complex in smell. A beer lover's session beer.
Caramel, grassy hops. Boom-boom. Again, so much more complex than I can describe; It's thick, rich, but incredibly easy to drink and satisfying.
Round, cool, a little grainy, but just the right consistency. It's full, but easy to drink, never filling; Just a little bitter on the back end, enough to make you crave the next sip.
It's all about the gulp! It seems like whenever I buy a six-pack of this it's all gone within 2-3 hours. Low enough alcohol to session, way enough flavor to session. Perfect.
