Pouring from the bottle to the glass, the head poured smoothly but quickly disippated into almost nothing. Slight lacing in the glass as I drank.

The heavy malt-forward aroma was sweet on the nose and pleasant to experience as opposed to getting ram-rodded with hops. The mouthfeel was creamy but not heavy; this beer would fit in nicely with a nitro tap.

The malt taste was bready with some slight hints of mild fruit (probably esters). A sweetness pervaded every sip.

Easily sessionable, this beer was way more than expected. It's complex in its simplicity and it's brave to stand against the current hop trends. Truly a fantastic session that pays homage to Schmalz' "could give a shtick" style and to us fewer recognized malt-forward beer lovers.
