Draft to taster at the Atlanta brewpub. Looks solid; a transparent brown with foamy off-white head. Smells malty with notes of dough and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style. FROTHINGSLOSH (8139) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
