A bottle left over from the variety pack I bought for Superbowl weekend. Poured into my Prima Pils glass.

A: With a gentle pour this beer appears golden to light copper in color with one finger head of white foam. Gentle carbonation sifts upwards though the tall pilsner glass.

S: At first, a little nutty from the malts. No hops. Rather clean smelling after putting the German malt aromas aside.

T: Nutty, toasty, and bready malt flavors. Slight hop taste comes afterwards - likely of the noble hop family.

M: A light tasting, slightly bitter beer with an even balance between the malt & hops.

O: Not a bad beer by any means. Not great, yet not subpar by any means. Having lived in Pittsburgh for a number of years, I'll come back to this one if nothing other than supporting a PA brewery. Cheers!
