Six-pack from the brewery, didn't see this around Madison yet.
Sticky 3 fingers of foam, compact with larger bubbles pushing through to the surface. Nice reddish-amber tone with high clarity. Lazy, solitary bubbles drift through the ale. Broken webs of lace form on the sides of the glass.
Bready with slight herbal hop resin present. Yakima Golding and Bavarian Hallertau are the varieties listed on the label.
More of a showcase of bready malts, there's a dry herbal hop presence that lingers in the background. It's reminiscent of the profile in German and Czech Pilsners a little. Slight residual cereal grain, with some minor hop bitterness.
Drinks very light, great carbonation level balances the feel, making it an easy quaffer. Doesn't remind me of winter, but it's a fine Amber, seasonal or not.
