Looks like this is no longer retired as I just had it today. On draft at Ava’s. pours a dark amber brown with a super creamy off white head. Aroma of light sweet malt, molasses, light grass. Flavor follows with sweet malts and some earthy grass, bit of a dirty lager finish. Smooth mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation. Drinks pretty standard and solid for the style, just not super exciting or my kind of brew. Overall definitely recommended for lager fans.

OK Hopheads... Call me a "malt head," if you will. But this is an exceptional rendition of the style; gorgeous dark gold in the glass with a nice foamy head that left laced foam all the way down. "All malt all the time" in the nose.

Fantastic, rich mouthfeel with just enough carbonation to make it refreshing. Taste is malt in all its wonderful variations: clean, buttery (butterscotch?), rich, slick on the tongue--with a tiny bit of hops flavor adding some bitterness to the aftertaste. That's it.

Labeled a "premium" or "seasonal," it's not always available at the brewpub, but it's worth the trip to try it. Today I asked if they bottle. "No," was the answer, but a growler-full found its way to my fridge. Looking forward to that!

Good, solid malty lagers seem to be a dying breed among the craft breweries. This is a welcome surprise!
