A: Poured into a pilsner glass to a deep yellow topped by a two and a half finger dense white head that retains well and leaves decent lacing
S: Smells of pale malts and some clean noble hop aromas
T: Taste is sweet and malty up front with a little bit of sulphur and minerals. Slightly vegetal with some clean hop notes from the noble hop additions. Swallow is a nice floral noble hop kick with some sweet maltyness.
M: This beer has a medium mouthfeel with decent carbonation that isn't prickly and a refreshing finish
O: Overall this is a tasty beer. It has some really nice flavors and some decent complexity. What it does it does well and it tastes pretty good.

I was excited to see this one on tap at WOB in Birmingham, AL.

It was served in a shaker, the beer is a medium copper with s skim of beige foam.

The nose is of malts, a bit of dark fruit and a touch of alcohol.

The beer is malt forward with a bit of slow poke sucker like sweetness, some ripe red apple and a touch of alcohol.

The mouth is silky smooth and supple

I liked the various facets of this beer.

light orange with thin offwhite head, not much lacing. Noble hops dominate the nose. Light caramel with strong Hops bitterness. Decent carbonation. Bottle was skunked which is too bad as this is a decent beer.

A: crystal clear; copper colored; steady stream of bubbles rising; 1 finger ivory head that receded to a thin collar; very little lacing;

T: toffee up front; morphs into sweet malt by mid-palate, which fades toward the finish; light bitterness mixed with the remaining malt sweetness at the end;

M: medium to full bodied; effervescent carbonation; dry finish;

O: didn't get any pils malt character; would have liked a little more hop profile beyond the bit of bitterness at the finish;

11.2 oz bottle, weizen glass

A – Deep gold to light amber. A ton of fairly sizeable bubbles rising towards the top. Extraordinarily clear. Very little head, though what’s there seems to stick around for awhile.

S – Unfortunately this bottle is lightstruck, due to Einbecker’s decision to use green bottles. Therefore I am counting it against them since it is a packaging flaw and handling can’t really be blamed. Some mild caramel malt aroma, with herbal hops far in the background.

T – A lot of caramel flavor, golden biscuit, and light brown sugar, definitely some Maillard products. Hops are light and floral, mostly contributing mild bitterness.

M – Fairly low carbonation, residual sweetness carries through to the finish. Low amount of bitterness.

O – Seems to come in a bit on the sweet side. Excellent flavor, but a bit out of balance, to a fault.
