look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Pours very light yellow and very clear, with snow white head. Smell is fresh and a little earthy malt. Tastes good, nice biscuits and butter with some sour cherries. Mouthfeel is fresh, clean, crisp.

Overall, I would drink again. Not a style I've drank a lot of but this is pretty good.

Not sure where to place this style, the site says "Munich-style pale lager", but, tastes to me like a Helles.

A: Pours light gold, nice head & Retention. Nice lace waves.

S: malts, biscuits, a slight pine sent.

T: Good balance of malts & light, maybe saaz hops (?). Good, but, just kinda plain.

M: Light, clean, nice drinker.

D: Again, nice drinker. Nothing offensive, but, nothing outstanding

Pours a pale, slightly hazy golden in color. Head is just barely off-white, lacing is good. Carbonation looks pretty even and light.

Nose starts out with a fairly neutral malt profile (pale Munich and Crystal) with a lighter Noble hop profile just at the tail end. Yeast profile is neutral...

There's a 'zing' of Noble hops which begins about midway through the first sip, and a nice lingering bitterness. Malty and just barely on the sweet side, with a touch of malt depth and complexity. Nice balance: The bitterness is where it should be for the style, the sweetness held in check, and just enough tanginess from the hops as well.

Lighter esters, but some are to be expected and they do not detract.

Overall it is not a bad example of the style.
