Thanks Matt for bringing some of this back with you over Christmas. Clear bronze color with a moderate off-white head. Scents of lightly toasted malt and caramel. Clean flavors, with a bit of sweetness in the form of caramel and toasted malt. Mild noble hops in the background keep it clean. A very nice interpretation of a classic and still one of my favorite styles (when done well).

This is only 4.8%? I’m not used to such a sticky-malty beer being so low alcohol. Great rich maltiness like the best of the style, almost a brown ale really instead of a lager. I was surprised by this one.

Enjoyable. Attractive amber-red although my draft lacked much head at all, which may have also muted the slightly bready and malty aroma. Some surprising up front malt sweetness quickly gives way to a well balanced, very drinkable quaffer with decent body. With a little head on it this would be very good.
