Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Will Becher glass. Bottled 26 May 2016. (OK, whoa, didn't realize this was a year old. Freaking NYC.)
4.25/3.25/3.25/3.75/3.25
A: Clear, effervescent chestnut beer with two fingers of voluminous head. Heavy lacing.
S: Smells crispy metallic with a hint of pumpernickel bread.
T/M: Hm. A touch sour on the foretaste before a more much pleasantly malty maintaste takes over. The mouthfeel is light, a touch bubbly, with an unsticky sweet finish.
F: A solid, above-average beer that is unassuming and pretty middle of the road. Not quite what I was looking for, but I'd enjoy revisiting a fresher bottle.

Pure amber color with a finger of off white foam and excellent lacing throughout. Rich bready aroma with a touch of dried fruit. The taste starts off with a bit of caramel sweetness and toasted malt, moving into a slight cherry and raisin sweetness. Clean and rich mouthfeel.

Bottle. Dark amber pour with diminishing head.

Smells of sweet bready malt, molasses, fruity esters.

Clean, crackery malt with a touch of sweetness, coupled with some fruity esters that add some complexity to an otherwise straightforward brew. Very minimal hop presence. The finish is much drier than the aroma would suggest.

Clean, crisp mouthfeel that carries the light/medium mouthfeel.

Nicely executed lager. An easy drinking beer that offers just enough to keep it interesting.

From a growler, pours a translucent light brown. Very active carbonation with lots of bubbles and a fizzy head.

The nose is dried fruit, dark malt, light earthy hops, and a little biscuit. The flavor is moderately sweet, caramel malt, butterscotch, earthy hops and yeast. The finish is crisp, refreshing, but a bit heavy and sticky.

Overall, not bad...average.

09/25/13 On tap at Rattl n Hum, NYC. I'm surprised to find a lot of dried cherries. Don't get me wrong, I happen to like it but it's not like any other lager I've ever had.

Pretty darn heavy on the palate and filling to boot. It's Sept. & this fits right in.
