Thanks to my dad for getting me the winter beers of the world which oddly enough included this beer. I had been meaning to try it and had in fact almost picked up a six pack. Tasted at the Carpenters Christmas party in a wine glass.
Overall Impression: Very flavorful lager. Toasty addition really appeals to the palate. Yet still maintains a lagered character. Nuttiness becomes more pronounced as the beer reaches the finish.
