William Penn Colonial Style Lager

12 oz single from Tower on Buford.
Nice depth of color on the pour, but the carbonation seems a little too lively for the style which in turn produces a scant, over-bubbly head and no lace. A shame because the color looked promising. It quickly dies in the glass.
The nose is pretty amazing. It has a deep, sweet malt presence that almost immediately turns into an old, slightly musty sherry note.
The tase reflect that, and have me reaching for the bottle to see if there is a date on it. There isn’t, and this hasn’t been in the Atlanta market very long so my suspicion is that this is reasonably fresh. Odd beause these are definitely the kind of tastes that one associates with oxidation and older beer. It’s not too much of a problem for me since I generally enjoy those sherry-like notes, but I’m not at all sure that it’s supposed to be present here in this beer.
Odd and I’m not sure what to make of this.
