2007 edition of one of my favorite styles from my favorite micro. Not sure why this year's offering shines this year - mood, previous string of brews consumed, just the need for a good, precision lager? Whatever - this batch is deelightful!
Poured a deep gold with a billowy white head that settles quickly, aroma of bready malt and light noble hops in great harmony -- slight pepperiness from alcohol.
Wrap all of the aroma characteristics into the flavor and add a slight, sweet nuttiness, a medium-light body with a soft mouth-feel, a dry finish and you have one of the best beer experiences outside Munich itself.
Agreed - here's to Kirby's fine art!

On-tap at Panther's Pub in Greendale, WI:
Pours clear amber with a thin, lasting creamy head that leaves plenty of lacing.
The smell is mild, but there is some toasted malt that is inviting enough.
The taste is of toasted sweet caramelized bread with an earthy, subdued fruity bitter-ish balance in the warming finish.
It is creamy smooth. Carbonation level fits it very well.
This is an excellent example of the style. Sweet leaning, malty, but with balance, toasty, mildly warming and easily drinkable. A great spring offering!
