The archetypal pour for the lager style a crystalline gold, the head portly in size, creamy in its consistency, a brilliant white, and as it erodes leaves behind a thick clinging sheet of lace to conceal the glass. The aroma of barley, freshly toasted, sweet, clean and a real treat for the senses. As for the start, you guessed it malt, sweet and the top middling in its mouth feel. Modestly acidic, the hops apropos to the style, dry and long lasting aftertaste, quite drinkable and a real thirst quencher irregardless the time of year.

Nice bright golden beer with average larger carbonation resulting in a big white fluffy cap with good retention.
Smells quite fruity and malty up front, it's pleasant and interesting. More fruity than I would expect from a lager but greatly appreciated.
A mix of fruity and sweet grainy flavors up front with a perfect European hop bitterness (earthy, slightly floral). It's delicate but definitely present. Medium to heavy bodied, almost chewy. This beer finishes medium dry with just a touch of floral flavors and herbal hops. It's definitely interesting, and extremely drinkable, one of the best lagers I've had in a while. (I really dislike lagers, btw).
Interesting beer with an good amount of character, worth a sample, nothing spectacular or mind blowing, just tasty.

On-tap at Lancaster Dispensing Co. served in a pint glass.
Clear pale yellow with a fluffy head that laced suprisingly well. Smells a bit musty with a few spice notes. Good flavor from the hops bring a clean, grassy taste with a hint of lemon. Very crisp and has a light feel in the mouth. Very sessionable and would be a good change of pace to the wheats of summer.
