Purchased on a recent holiday trip and served in a tulip. Nice clear gold straw color with a fine head and good retention and lacing. The cascading bubbles up the sides of the glass are very inviting, but I expected more carbonation. Nose is definitely a lager nose. A clean, flowery bouquet. This beer has a fair amount of flavor for this style. You expect (and get) a nice mild champagne-like dryness that is crisp, coarse, and grainy. Still, the beer maintains a nice balance. Mouthfeel is thin-to-firm and is good for this style.

This is not my favorite style, but I enjoyed this beer. It lacks the hop complexity to be truly great, but it's still tasty and refreshing.
