This clear light amber beer sports a thick, cream-colored head. The aroma is clean with toasted malt and a touch of spicy hop character. I detect a hint of bready yeastiness and sulfur notes, which is consistent with a well lagered beer. The flavor is very homogenous from start to finish with toasted malt, light fl oral hop and a fi nal touch of sweetness. The malt lingers in the aftertaste with just a whisper of alcohol. Other than the malt richness, it would be diffi cult to discern this beer was any stronger than a typical amber lager. Recommended for those who want to step up to something more interesting than a traditional pilsner.
