Kotayk Lager Beer

This beer is from Armenia and is 5.2% ABV.

It pours a dark honey golden in color.  The aroma is musky, of grain, straw and a hint of grass.  The taste follows right in the footsteps of the aroma.  The flavors of grain, straw and grass lurk in the middle of a very large lager "funk", then there is a bright note in the taste that flashes and then the finish is refreshingly bitter.  The aftertaste is the direct lingering taste of the beer itself.  I get the sense that if you had this fresh out the tap in Armenia, it might be one of the best lagers you ever had.
