Serving Type: 12 oz bottle poured into a glass mug.

Appearance: Clear, dark amber brown. Fizzy, off white head; recedes with minimal lacing.

Smell: Clean, lightly toasted grains, a bit of malt extract sweetness.

Taste: Mostly malt, lightly toasted and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body crisp carbonation.

Overall: Far from the robustness of a true bock. More of an amber lager; light and drinkable with a bit of malt character.

Appearance:
Good bubbly head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. The body has a color halfway between iced tea and coca cola. Clear. Average carbonation.

Smell:
Mild. Malty. Sweet.

Taste:
Malty and sweet. Clean, smooth, and drinkable. Mild hop flavor and bitterness at the end. Very slight toastiness to the malt. Adjuncts are not detectable.

Mouthfeel:
Medium bodied. Very drinkable. Decent carbonation. The low alcohol really helps this go down smoothly.

Overall:
A good beer. A lager with more character than most, but still very smooth and drinkable. Not cheap but not expensive either. Middle of the road in terms of price and quality. An easy drinking beer, with some character, that is better than many others.

I enjoyed this beer a lot. It has a darkish red-brown color to it, but it drinks very smooth and lighter than it looks. Not much aftertaste. Good beer.
