look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pale golden amber body, slightly hazy. Nice big white head, with pretty good retention and nice lacing. Nice big spicy nose and a light citrusy sweetness. The taste is dominated by the spicy hops making it refreshing. It tastes a little one dimensional though, it needs some more balance in my opinion. I like the toasty aftertaste. Slightly slick mouthfeel. Good lager, definately worth a try.
