A: An alluringly bright gold color.

S: Pleasantly sweet grains. Freshly shelled wheat husks. No grassiness nor subtle spicing can be detected.

M: Medium bodied and smooth. Not as a crisp finish as desired. Only semi-dry, and left with a wet palate. Breadiness pervades.

T: Honeysuckle. Very clean tasting malt forward beer. Needs more hop bitterness to tidy up the malt sweetness.

O: Definitely showcases the German malts nicely, but at the expense of any noticeable contribution from the Czech pilsen hops.

This golden lager is very light and easy to drink. I enjoy this beer very much. The German pips malt really stands out in the taste. And the hallertauer hops are the perfect choice to put a hint of bitterness in the after taste. I would recommend this beer for a tailgate or on the beach.
