3.55/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - pours a beautiful, clear golden color, with a frothy white 3-finger width head, which stays for a good few minutes.

Smell - Tart apple, very subtle hop and malt.

Taste - A lot of crisp grassy notes, but the promise of apple in the smell is faint in the taste. Subtle hop bitterness. Nothing offensive in the flavor, but nothing stands out, either.

Mouthfeel - Light body. Smooth, but just feels a bit under-carbonated; nothing to tickle the tongue, and I feel it should be there.

Overall - This is a well-balanced lager, but I expected more tartness and bite. I drank it once years ago and thought it was decent. It doesn't look like much has changed.

3.61/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a richly dark straw hue, a bit hazy. Minimal foam (although I poured softer than usual, so that may have been my fault). Aroma a bit grassy, but couldn't pick up too much else due to the improper pour. Taste of cereal grains, biscuity. Nothing complex or layered to my palate. Bit of a hollow mouthfeel, crisp with a dry finish.
