Bottle from the brewery.
Clear bight golden color with a medium head. Fragrant, buttery, yeasty aroma, quite sweet and a bit fruity. Bananas. Fruity, full round flavor, lots of yeast and butter. Rich malt. Relatively sweet, though hops are evident and become more so towards the finish. Slightly similar flavor profile to the Koelsch, though hoppier and a bit cleaner. Basically in the Bohemian style, I suppose. Full flavor, medium body, with just stronger than medium bitterness. Finish lightly bitter, fragrant, mellow. As with the koelsch, I’m not sure if this is really how the style should taste, but I like it quite a bit.
