This beer is not too shy to froth up, three fingers of head with a good retention as well. Bright copper hue shows many bubbles rising to the top. Thick and rich toasted grain aroma with a bit of herbal hop in the nose. Deep smoothness with a creamy slick medium body. Heavy hand of malt sweetness though it never becomes cloying. Sweet bready overtones with a hint of grassiness from the grain. Hop bitterness is modest but enough to balance, some herbal flavor does come through in a soft and pleasant manner. A clean sweet graininess lingers in the finish.
What a remarkable beer. Clean with not off flavors, even the malt sweetness does not show a caramel tone to it which most American versions do. Very drinkable and a sure pick. I'll be seeking this beer out next year, no doubt.
