another fun unheard of brew from the beer census guys, they really hooked me up! this is loosely a german dark lager, and i think its pretty authentic. the malt is more like a brown ale with some chocolate character, more like dry cocoa, and a hint of caramel while staying dry and light on the palate. the lager yeast is evident here, it does a nice job drying up the finish and giving it a seasonally perfect crispness. im not sure why i expected this to be darker and heavier like a porter, but i am pleasantly surprised by its lightness overall. the grain captures all the darker flavors, but drinks like a blonde lager, just easy down with upbeat carbonation and a quick finish. probably one of the better american takes on this style i have come across, true to german roots but just different enough. i could drink a sixer of these no problem, and enjoy and appreciate the lower abv.

Pours brown with a head that soon becomes patchy. Some spotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of lightly roasted grain, some cocoa and a touch of earthy noble hops.

The taste is of sweet dark grain, bread that is similar to a light pumpernickel and a hint of cocoa. Some musty grass in the finish.

It is crisp and smooth with an appropriate light to medium body.

A well-balanced, easy-drinking traditional dark lager! Enjoyable!
