On tap at Red's Porch.

A. Black, until you hold it up to the light which reveals a deep ruby red. Thin tan-coloured head.

S. Lots of toasted malt.

T. Sweet at first, then a big hit of roasted malt bitterness and some noble hops. Lingering bitter finish.

M. Medium bodied, smooth, nicely carbonated, crisp.

O. Another delicious beer from Live Oak, possibly the best brewer of German and Czech style beers in the US. Every time LO brews a new beer they do it superbly, and if you can do the simple things to perfection you're doing every bit as well as someone who goes for the weird and esoteric. LO Hefe, LO Pilz, Treehugger, Big Bark, and now this. What a joy to be living in the same town.

Serving type: on-tap
