Standard pour from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass yielded a 1-finger tan head that quickly fell to a film at the surface. No lacing to speak of beyond a few specks here and there on the glass. Color is a deep clear cola-brown.

Nose is yeasty and bread-y. Not as much hops as one would expect from a lager.

Flavors were dominated by toasted coffee-like malt, with a trace of bread and some nutty notes. Some subtle hops near the end. Finish is on the dry side.

Mouthfeel is medium-light, quite carbonated, one of the more traditionally lager-ish aspects of the beer.

Overall, a solid if not spectacular beer, this could be an interesting alternative to traditional lagers, refreshing but more substantial than what many may be used to in the style.
