3.35/5  rDev -15.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 500 ml. Euro-style bottle into a pint glass.

A--Pours a fluffy finger and a half eggshell off-white with decent lacing and retention. Body lies more on the gold than the copper end of the spectrum--in other words it's an orange with more yellow than red in it.

S--Spectacular. Strongest part of this beer, for me. Lots of fall fruit--young pears, apples, even quince.

T--Hoppy, especially in the back. Really pulls on your tongue--a little more than i like, as this is more in the turpentine end of things than the gentle nudge to clear the palate and drink more end of things. Soft vanilla up front without a whole lot of spice throughout. Hops boost the fruit into a more acidic profile of them, but the malt really doesn't pull through all that, leaving kind of an echo of a breadloaf rather than the thing itself. Disappointing in that regard. Don't get me wrong here--you'll taste caramel and you'll taste Munich, but it ain't enough for my understanding of the style.

M&D--Again, a little too much pine for this lumberjack. Other than that no complaints. Carbonation was spot on, and it had an easy creaminess that smoothed the ride out amid the tongue-parching. If I liked hops a lot more I'd order plenty of this, rather than the Paulaner, which so far is my favorite in this style.
