Had a 1 pint tall bottle that I purchased perhaps a month ago, I kept it ice cold and ready for when an amber malt craving struck. Poured a color reminiscent of dark honey, like a yellow to orange sunset with a creamy head that broke quite quickly. Aroma was marvelously fruity and spicy, with ample aromatic malt character. Taste was a layered blend of caramel and cherry fruit, floral vanilla, a darker malt note like faint molasses, and herbal hops that recall black tea. Semi-chewy body but not that much residual sweetness, just enough to balance some spice that replaces the sweet malts and fruit for the finish. The whole flavor palette integrates as you drink and yet the individual components become more salient as well. I love beers that actually reveal more of themselves as you proceed. A prime example of how complex and aromatic a well-crafted lager can be. Malt-forward but with enough fruit and spice from yeast and hops to provide balance and nuance. I am a bit of a Luddite when it comes to beer, pro-Reinheitsgebot when it comes to non-Belgian offerings and this sort of brew gives me strength.
