Almost clear copper come amber with a good sized light beige head.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by H.G. at the Zoiglstube. The smoked malt on first whiff seems peat-like but further passes show it’s more reserved and meaty and the juniper gives it a quiet herb and twig and forest rain character. Creamy, soft carbonation, very clean throughout, malt is soft and supportive. Lingering mild juniper spice in the finish with an exceptionally rich meat and peat smoke quality. Low sweetness with a beefy full body and rich frothiness. Truly remarkable flavor expression and balance.
