Vividly golden and exceptionally clear, this malty lager throws aromas of floral hops, grains, hints of sweet corn, honey and hard water with traces of sulfur. Sweet malt flavors and light honey and corn notes from pilsner malts balance floral, spicy, noble hops, forming an elegant flavor combination and a wonderful, lingering hop finish. When swished around the palate, the creamy mouthfeel and moderate body seem perfect for the style. With accurate ingredients, commendable technical merit and charming malt and hop harmony, this example of an increasingly rare German lager style seems like a bit of flavorful history in a glass.
