COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full bodied, malt-accentuated amber lager, unfiltered, and cellar aged. Double decocted from German Pilsner, Vienna and Munich malts with several kettle additions of Nobel hops. We have re worked this family favorite many times over the years and of the 20 or so recipes created it was "number seven" that was selected by our diverse tasting panel in a recent blind tasting as the best of the best.

Hazy gold pour. Aroma is slightly tart, wheaty, with notes of hay. Flavor is sweet, slightly tart, well balanced.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a highly carbonated golden yellow with a lingering white fizzy head. Lively carbonation. The aroma is of caramel,m biscuits and pale malts. Also a little buttery with little to no hop character. The body is light and slightly astringent. The taste has an obvious upfront butterscotch sweetness with a low bitterness at the end. Decently balanced. A little too sweet for my palate.

Pours pale gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface leaving trailing spiders. Sweet caramel and sour corn aromas. Medium bodied with sweet caramel upfront turning dry in the sourdough and hay middle before a medium-length bread and bitter earth finish.
