Malty and sweet...in saying that there is a slight hop bite and a dry balanced finish. However, it's gently hopped to cut the sweetness, a great overall beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Hazy brownish orange in color. Poured with almost no head. Might be my fault.

Smell: A lot of yeast and bread is present with some sweet fruity notes.

Taste: A lot of bread up front mixed with some fruits. Maybe like a fruitcake? Very malty finish.

Feel: Light enough to be refreshing, but not so light it's dull and watery. Has a nice texture.

Overall: Always a good choice when there are no other good choices. If that makes sense.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass in February 2015.

Appearance: Deep amber, with nice thick and light colored head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a nice balance of hops bitterness in the aroma. There is some sweet malty aroma, which balances the hops for a nice aroma, but the hops dominate.

Taste: A nice mix of hops, malts, and herbs in the flavor, that make for an interesting and complex ale, but with a little bit of sweetness. There is a nice after-taste, that lasts for a while but not too long.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and crisp, with a medium body.

Overall: This is an good and complex lager.

A mix of very malty and slightly bitter. Definetly worth a try if you want to know what 'malty' means
