Dark amber and a small head after poured from tap. Very sweet nose of caramel and biscuit. Cloying for lager. Not a light nor refreshing beast. A marzenesque malt bomb. Very sweet. Cherries, chocolate and caramel taste.

New York State, boyeee! The home of the Yankees, Mets, and obscene gun laws.

Appearance (3.75) : Beige three fingered head, pillowy and large. The body is a toasted pecan color. 50% opacity.

Aroma (4.25) : Mild hop, toasted pecan, rolled oatmeal, milled grain, faint hint of maple sap. It actually reminds me of Minnesota. A great bouquet, medium strength, I'm giving this a 4.25.

Taste (4.25) : Wow. Can I say it again? Wow. This lager is fantastic. The slightly sour malt and hop hit unmistakeably at first, but what follows is a slight dark toast/roasted pecan flavor that sets in like a delicacy. It's like I ate a miniature pecan pie or something. Some faint hop left drying on the palate, but the pecan and nut flavors overwhelm it making it a nice finish.

Extra note : there's a slight antiseptic/paint flavor to it floating in there somewhere, I can't put my finger on it. Perhaps it's just the alcohol fermentation of the yeast. The more I drink it, it disappears (so does the beer, unfortunately).

Mouthfeel (4) : Zippy, then creamy, then roasted and dry. Light bodied within spec. Better than average for lagers. I'm giving it a 4.

Overall (4.17) : I wish they sold this here. 302BeerGuy traded me this one and so far it's probably the most impressive lager I've tried outside of the midwest area. I really enjoy it, it's a fire-side, late night, cozy lager for sure.

Light Pilsner malts on the nose with a light toast, no corn, no fruit and no diacetyl.
Pours brilliant deep gold with a 2" white foam cap.
A hint of toast on the palate with hints of caramel, a trace of chalk on the finish and very faint vegetal with a suggestion of pepper seasoned with a spicy hop herbalness.
Medium light body and medium to medium high carbonation with a crisp dry finish.
