Appearance: “It is a dark gold color--maybe even orange or burnt orange. Good white head.”
Aroma: “Yeasty, baked bread.”
Taste: “The malt is paramount. Reminds me of the taste of home-made buttermilk biscuits. There’s good carbonation. It’s somewhat sweet, but not overpoweringly so. This is rich, but it seems like you could have at least a couple without getting too filled up.”
Food Affinity: “Well, those big Bavarian-style pretzels would seem like a natural pairing. Otherwise, maybe some autumn ideas with a Germanic influence like pig knuckle with kraut or grilled weisswurst.”
--Guest reviewer Gary Johnson says tasting this beer takes him back to memories of his junior year abroad program spent in Germany.
