Off the tap in West Lebanon this beer was a pale golden color with a half-finger of white head. The retention was unimpressive but there was a skim that left streaky (but again unimpressive) lacing. The aroma was of lager malt, biscuity and slightly toasted malt with some elements of cellar/must and grains. The flavors were a little unusual, but not bad. It started with a touch of lager malt and then became sweeter with some sugars and citrus hops that came off in combination like a hard orange candy! Definitely a stronger sweet malt presence than I was expecting and not too dry though there was the usual graininess one expects from the style. As it warmed more of the doughy malt and 'cellared' quality came out of it. The body was medium, the mouthfeel smooth and the carbonation lively but not too high. A little odd for the style but sessionable and a nice spin on a classic.
