Beer is light orange in color, great lacing. Nose is lightly corn grains, sweet lager-style malts, and some cooked mushrooms too. Tastes is like a lager, crisp and clean with a bite on the palette. The lingering on this is delicious.

Draft at Brick Store in Atlanta. much darker than I’d expected. Nice firm pillowtop of a head. Big malty aroma on this one. Drinks with a dfinite malt bent too, but also a nice bitter twist at the finish. Exceptional. (#3719, 10/26/2009)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very light amber with a big off- white head. Aroma is mostly grain, a little bread dough and just a touch of caramel. Mostly just grain. Malts come through a little bit more in the flavor. Nice caramel, roasted nuts and a nice earthiness. Definitely on the lighter side. Not bad but I still like Ayinger better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a dark brown color with a light head. The nose is toasty with light maltiness and a grassy sweetness. The malts are nice and nutty, rich and full. The flavor is a little sweet and fruity forward, grainy with a touch of toast. Finishes mild and light, a bit thinner than I’d hoped and a rounded tail. Decent enough, but I need some decoction!
