3.28/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pale clear yellow in my pint glass, almost tan, with a big bubbly head that disappears after a minute leaving just a bare minimum of sloppy lacing that falls away quickly. Very little carbonation is visible.

I smell a little orange zest, a hint of floral and spicy from the hops, but nothing strong. Almost nothing there except the lager yeast which always smells a little earthy/woody to me.

Mild bitterness, but it's there. A very earthy and grainy, above average but somewhat typical lager style in my opinion. It balances out nicely in the end with more of that mildly floral, spicy hoppiness than most lagers I've tasted though. There's still just almost a hint of some orange and the beer sweetens as it warms.

The mouthfeel is what takes this from a typical lager to something I would choose to drink again despite my preference for ales. Light and smooth, but with just enough body and dryness in the finish to make this a crisp and enjoyably drinkable beer.
