Indeed Mexican Honey Imperial Lager

This is a 7.2% ABV imperial lager brewed with Mexican orange blossom honey and Amarillo hops. It is from the Indeed Brewing Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Like several other recent and brand new brewers in the Twin Cities, they are located in Northeast Minneapolis. They are a member of 1% for the planet, a global alliance of businesses that donate one percent of their gross revenue to organizations that help preserve and restore the natural environment. 

The beer pours a deep honey golden and yellow in color. There is a tall, very thick, soft and foamy head of pure white. The aroma is amazing, floral, light honey, sweet, grassy, a field of prairie grass and flowers, or sweet hay freshly cut and laying down in the early morning sun as the dew slowly evaporates. The taste follows the aromas directly, an elegant, exciting, amazing mix of honey, flowers, grass, straw, grains. The beers drinks as smooth as non-viscous honey, with a subtle carbonation. The finish is fairly bitter, the sweetness exists as an aroma, but is cut down on the tongue by the wonderfully contrasting grassy bitterness. This is a masterpiece, the best lager I have ever had.
