served on-tap at the Overlook Bar & Grill at Denali Park.
the beer appears a chestnut brown color with amber highlights. Clear, with very little head, just a few bubbles. Aroma is sweet, definitely has the smell of birch in there.
Taste is odd. Nice and malty with minimal hopping, just like a bock, but the addition of the birch flavor just doesn't jive. Body is a bit sticky and thick.
Overall, it's a nice experiment, with a nod to a local ingredient. But one pint is enough for me.
Serving type: on-tap
