4/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Freshness date 1/28/09: 4892AM. Another GLBC offering that I have enjoyed many times but have never reviewed.
Poured into pils glass which produces a two-finger, biege head. Color is amber (go figure) & brown, moderate carbonation, and some lacing that lingers.
Aroma is biscuit, caramel malt, grains, with a dash of spice, mainly white pepper. Notes of lemon grass finish off the smell test.
Smooth roasted malt wrapped in creamy caramel leads to a mild crisp that ends with an appearance of some hops. Butterscotch and toffee play well on the palate and balance great with the hops. The mouthfeel is very refined, smooth at the beginning and ending with an ever so slight bitterness.
What a balanced and tasty brew; much like everything that comes from GLBC. If you are looking for a session beer or you want to give your taste buds a hop break, look no further. Smooth.
