This is the new German trained brewnmaster' s first big success. A wonderfully made old German recipe of a cross between a Marzen style lager and a fest beer. He uses old decognation methods that bring out a great balanced product. The munich malts and Carapils malts blend to make a dark brew with a nice creamy head. German yeast combined with tetning hops, hallertau and saaze hops round out a sweet chocalate flavor. The roasted malts bring a nice caramel overtone to the table. This is a highly drinkable dark beer with just enough sweetness and bitter bite to the end.
