COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A collaboration brew with Megan Parisi, acclaimed Brewster of the much anticipated Bluejacket Brewery to be located near Nationals Park. The malt bill for this strong brew includes imported German Pilsener, Munich, Aromatic, Wheat and others to contribute to the malt backbone and mouth feel. Both kettle hop additions of German Perle and Hersbrucker hops were restrained to allow the malt and yeast notes to prevail. Its reddish hue and fluffy white foam head in the glass recreate the beauty of this Munich specialty beer. Fresh bready yeast notes, banana ester fruitiness and earthy clove spiciness combine with a light citrus peel flavor and a very complex flavor experience. Prosit!

Draft. Poured a hazy orange with a medium off-white head and some lacing. Sweet aroma but not overpowering with a caramel note as well. Same combination came through in the taste. Easy on the palate and very drinkable.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter. Medium color and body. Nose has pretty strong esters and fruitiness. A bit too much sweetness and body to the flavor. Slight hint of alcohol. A pretty good example of the style, but not terribliy drinkable.

Tap at Mad Fox. Pours extremely hazy deep orange. Thicker white foam. Good lacing. Nose is yellow apples and spiced apple pie. Taste is herbal hoppy, a tad sharp on the bitterness, some baked apple. Palate is minerally, doughy, slight metallic twinge. Not too bad. Got a ho-hum review from my German beer pals. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
