Standard pour into a flute yielded a one-finger white head that fell quickly to a thin layer and left light lacing on the glass. Beer is a clear copper color.

Aroma is sweet and biscuit-y, not a huge hop presence on the nose, but quite pleasant.

Flavor is much as promised by the aroma- sweet, bread-y malts and light dried-fruit notes. Despite the label claiming this beer is "hop-jacked", the hop presence here is muted, though discernible (this seems to be a common trait to all the Spoetzl beers I've tried so far.) The finish is crisp and slightly dry.

Mouthfeel is light, very easy drinking, especially with its manageable 5% ABV. Carbonation is moderate.

A solid american lager. There's nothing amazingly awesome here, but it doesn't do anything particularly wrong, either. This would be a good beer on a hot summer day, or as way to introduce all-malt craft brews to someone more used to the standard American macro.
