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

Pours a very clear, pale straw color, with an inch of egg shell head that falls to about a quarter inch that really sticks around and has good cling. Just a bit of visible carbonation. There's a lot of sweet malt bread notes in the nose. A bit of underlying grassy hop provides some grounding. There is a bit of lemon peel that comes across in the bouquet, as well. Bread malt notes are very prominent in the taste, with a bit of hop bitterness making its presence felt at the sides and back of the tongue. Finishes on the sweet side, with the malts winning out over the hops. While not especially engaging, the tastes are all very smooth throughout their life on the palate. The feel is a bit more pedestrian than the taste: It's light-bodied and quite effervescent, with some acidity and crispness.

This is a classic-tasting and very well-balanced lager. What you see is what you get with this one: The lack of surprises or significant complexity in this one is compensated by smoothness and solid flavors throughout. It may not raise many eyebrows, but it really does everything that a good lager should.

Serving type: on-tap
