A thickly clouded, bright medium orange in color, this beer certainly looks to have more substance than most of the style. A continuous cascading effect continues to strengthen the head, which begins around two fingers tall, so that it remains a very strong and thick one finger until it reaches the bottom of the glass. It deposits itself in rings and patches pretty heavily all the way down.
The nose gives off a little bit of citrus with some grains. This is clearly a malt-based beer if not all-malt. A bit of honey-like sweetness comes through. It all translates pretty much exactly in the flavor with an underlying very light spicy and floral bitter note indicating that there are some hops in here after all.
Mouthfeel is light, appropriate to style, and doesn't get too watery or thinned-out. A light touch of both crispness and smoothness makes this a pretty good one, though it could use a bit more of each; if you're going light, this is better than most options available as far as this type of lager is concerned.
