Smells like a great smoked meat!

Color: Amber body with an off-white head, moderate carbonation--head fades to a glimmer with little lacing in about a minute.

Mouthfeel: perfect and smooth

taste: Astringent with a fluffy, smoky finish that teases and lingers.

Overall, this is a brilliant beer! I want one in the summer and spring when I'm grilling--why don't I have some brats with me right now?

Pours up to a moderate foam head and leaves bits of foam down the glass. Hazy amber color. Aroma is roasted nuts, biscuit and Munich malts. Flavor is more of the same, although intensity-wise this is reportedly weak for the style. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing, which is also on the low end of style. Overall, I give the beer a 4.5 because here is where I can say screw the style guidelines, I really like this beer.
