Thanks to BigTomZ for this one!
This pours a crystal clear shade of medium brown. A light brown colored head of loose foam, just less than a fingers worth, forms and dissipates rapidly. Lacing is decent, but very slippery.
A good nose, filled with mild malt notes. A good touch of breadiness. Light hints of fruity sweetness. A tiny trace of caramel.
I expected this one to be more sweet and malty. It has a very 'german' malt profile. That is to say that the malts are very mild, in presence and flavor, and lean more to the earthy side of the scale than sweet. Definite kiss of hops, right at the end.
An almost full body with a light level of carbonation. It suffers from it's lack of carbonation, which makes it seem almost oily, but not in a good way.
I really wanted to like this, but I just don't. It doesn't seem, to me, like they stayed true to the styler, either. It seems like they tried to do something a touch different, which is commendable. Unfortunaely, risk sometimes rewards and sometimes it doesn't. I don't think that it has, this time.
