Pours a dark coppered amber. I'm not sure if this beer being on draught is the problem or the shitty pour by the waitress but little aroma is showing as compared to when drinking from bottle. What is there is malt and dried fig components.
Ahh....once it hits the taste buds the perplexity of this great brew comes around. Very malty, and extremely clean tasting. The forte of GLBC in my opinion. Mellow hop component with fig, brown sugar, and a tad or raisin. A terrific finish keeps the palate enchanted for well over 40 seconds.
Very drinkable but will re-review from bottle for the smell of this beer. One I can pour.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle was poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer quickly. It is an amber color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Toasted malts, caramel, toffee, lager yeast, and grassy hops.
Taste: Nice toffee and caramel sweetness with bready and chewy Vienna and toasted malts and some bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, malty, medium bodied, some bitterness, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Nice Vienna lager. Very comparable with Sam Adams with a bit more bitterness.

I picked up one of these in a sampler-pack. I am not too keen on lagers usually, but the darker the better, and this one pours up a nice copper colour. Not too much nose, mostly bread, no head nor lacing to speak of. Taste was nicely malty, but they must use different barley or do something to it, as it isn't quite like most other malt-flavours. Finishes crisp and not too sweet.
I'll buy this again, definitely!
