Served and enjoyed in a pint glass at the brewery.

A: 1/4 finger head subsides into thin layer. Dark ruby-reddish brown. Very pretty and the head is what a lager typically offers.

S: Tad of rubbing alcohol hides behind caramelly and bready malt.

T: Sweet without being cloying. Quite tasty. Rich malt with no apparent hop bitterness.

M: Chewy/thickish. Smooth with no harshness.

D: High. Light in alcohol and very flavorful. A session beer.

Deep amber with a fairly thin white head.

A very fruity malt aroma - apples, pears, plums. The flavor remains on the fruit side of maltiness, with a caramel like sweetness in the background. A Hallertau sort of hop spiciness kicks in mid-sip along with a growing, controlled bitterness that really balances this bad boy out. Finishes with a lingering fruity-spicy-bitter balance that makes ya smack your lips and ask for another.

Sampled at the SUNY Plattsburgh Homecoming Festival, where LPPB had a sampling/sales tent set up. A large number of people were inquiring about their beers and, judging by the number of pints I saw being sold following the samples, it was going over VERY well. The only brewery there - not a macro in sight. Sweet.
