Pours clear with three inches of off white, tightly packed foam. Retention is average at best as it seems it is for this style. Very minor lacing at best.
Aroma is malt forward as it expected. Bread scents dominate the glass. Nut, caramel, and hops are there too. Smell this quick as the aroma seems to disappear the longer the beer mixes with the air.
Taste continues with bread malt making up the backbone of the drink. Caramel sweetness up front with a touch of nut in the middle lasting through until the end. Finishes with a bit of spice hops for balance, although softly, with a touch of buttery flavor; very minor.
Light end of body with a crisp share of carbonation.
A bit thin for the style both in the nose and the mouth. This beer should start to let me know it is there by the end of it. The aroma, while it lasts is pretty solid but it just doesn't have staying power. It reminds me of many Oktoberfest beers: just a little short. Enjoy!
