Very interesting. Certainly one of the most flavorful and complex lagers I’ve had and, not coincidentally, about the only barrel aged one. Plenty of barrel aging impact but not so much so as to mask some of the underlying lager character.
O: worth seeking out.

Bottle, shared at game night. Medium copper orange with a lasting off white head. Malty aroma, very bready and sweet. Lovely bready malts, light breadcrusts, apricot, vibrant floral hop notes. This far exceeded my expectations. Really terrific.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a average white head. Aroma is bready with some butterscotch and caramel apple. Flavor is sugar plums, dark bread and a bit of toffee. Finish is sweet but not overly heavy. A pretty tasty Americanized version of this style.
