This is perhaps one of the most drinkable lagers on the planet...perhaps the entire universe. Pours out a deep golden color with a puffy and foamy white head. The lace lingers and fades slowly, leaving spotty traces. The aroma is of sweet caramel malt; a faint whiff of fruit and light floral hops arouses the senses. The lightly herbal and slightly sweet malt is a perfect compliment to the citrusy and tea-like hops. This heavenly liquid is balanced, rounded and smooth, but flavorful. The complexion and flavors change ever so subtly as the glass warms and the change is good. One is not enough!

Poured a clear golden yellow with very little white head that quickly receded to a ring of white. Abundant carbonation bubbles could be seen going up the glass. Very nice looking and true to style. Scents of lager yeast, grainy malt and slight earthy hops. A simple but well rounded and bright aroma, very suitable to the style, quite pleasant. Taste begins with sweet malt, moving into some grainy and bready malt in the middle, before finishing with sweet malt and slight hints of hops. The aftertaste is sweet, with faint undertones of herbal, earthy hops. A good, crisp, bright flavor, befitting a pale lager. Maybe a touch on the sweet side and needing a little bit more hops, but otherwise quite good. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate-high carbonation and a crisp feel. Very nice, quite easy to drink. Overall this is a good lager with a nice refreshing aroma and flavor profile. My only complaint is the relatively low hop character, but otherwise it's a nice beer.
