I cannot give this one as thorough a review because I was drinking it at a tavern with colleagues after work. As a result, it would have been anti-social and beer geeky of me to leave the conversation to carefully analyze the elements of the beer. That said, I find this to be a high quality beer. I had it in a stein. I loved the brown color and enjoyed the malty sweet aroma. Highly drinkable. Refreshing, and a good beer to unwind with work friends on a Friday afternoon.

Poured from a chilled 12 oz. glass bottle into a lager glass.

Appearance: Copper brown color with about 2 fingers of head, good aeration.
Aroma: Mostly barley, a little bit of hops.
Taste: Strong malty taste, with some nuts and caramel in the background. No hops or barley...malt all the way with some nuts and caramel.
Mouthfeel: Fine, no surprises here.

If you love a malty beer, you'll like this one. It felt a bit filling too.
