Sampled on tap at the Dundee location. Served in a modified snifter glass, "because of the high alcohol content." Came off chill hazed sunny yellow with a wisp of a head and decent lacing. Aroma of earthy hops and grassy malts.
Though the carbonation was enough to make it go down easy, it seemed thicker than expected. Starts out with a chalky, grassy malts, but is finished with a hefty dose of what I usually just chalk up to "European hops." Not sure what specifically the flavor is, but it is usually associated with Euro-macro-lagers. Plays out well here, with a great dose of complexity. ETOH is very well hidden, though the brew finishes very dry.
