A picturesque meringuelike head sits atop this bright copper beer. Damp, lagered yeast scents breathe into a deep, bready malt bouquet before grassy, spicy hops cut through the round aroma. Toffee sweetness tickles the tip of the tongue, while toasted bread notes fan out over the rest of the mouth. Bridal Ale balloons mid-sip with a burst of carbonation that overwhelms the flavors; as the bubbles recede, pepper spice and a tempered acidity dig into the tongue. Wrapping up dry and clean, this beer showcases pretty flavors, but is ultimately overwhelmed by its rigorous mouthfeel.
