Shmaltz Brewing Coney Island Freaktoberfest

Shmaltz Brewing Coney Island Freaktoberfest
6.66% alc.

Another great offering from Shmaltz Brewing. It has a spectacular bright red color, with a very foamy and clingy head. Aroma is quite mild, with a gently warm nose.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and highly carbonated. Initially, I get an overwhelming sense of warmth, but not like a bad alcohol warm. It is very well balanced, but strong. Strong malty and strong hoppy flavors mix very well, with no overriding feel of either. The finish tapers off with a nice smooth maltyness. After an afternoon enjoying 71 degree weather, 22 ounces of yummy is a great treat.

Like I said, another great offering from Shmaltz!
