12oz bottle from Siciliano's Specialty Market in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Freshness date of November 20, 2011.
Pours a clear golden hue with a thick cap of frothy white foam, bubbly carbonation in the body, and strands of stringy lacing on the lager glass.
Smell is herbal and grassy hops, honey, earthy-mineral notes, wet hay, grainy, doughy and biscuity malts, faint sulphur aroma, apple skin, and white wine.
Taste is clean cereal grain sweetness, gala apples, white bread, biscuit, herbal, grassy, and fruity hop bitterness with some wheat husk on the cough.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, creamy carbonation, crisp and snappy hop bite precedes a prickly, lingering bitterness and dry finish.
Overall, this is one of the most robust and full-flavoured lagers that I've sampled. It has amazing depth with very high drinkability. A true gem of a beer, and one that I would purchase often if it was available locally. You have to try this brew.
