Pours a nice golden/copper color, with a nice dense white head. It kind of sticks around leaving a bit of lacing. This is really a nice looking beer, clear, golden. I'm interested. The smell is nice too. It comes out with some very nice pilsener malt graininess. Very nice graininess. And it has that brilliant lager cleanness. There's a bit of a caramelly, cakey, sticky malt, but not too much sweetness. I can also catch a whiff of some earthy hops, spicy, herbal, but not fruity and floral. Smells nice. The taste is good, too. Crisp and malty. This is what I want, noy as dark and rich as a doppelbock, but quite a bit more malty than any other lager. This is still quite refreshing. There's a nice tone of caramellized sugar, with a distinct barley graininess, with just a finish of some earthy leaves. Nice and sticky as it goes down, with great, big body, and there are no off-fermentation flavors. There's a crisp bite of carbonation. Good. I'm going to give this a good rating for drinkability. I really enjoyed it. It goes down well and I would definitely drink a few of these in a night, though at 6.2, wouldn't turn it into a session lager.

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!
