I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a light amber color and poured a fair head. The beer smelled terrible like it was sour or something. Whew!. The taste was not sour but it was dry and hoppy and I did not like it at all so I will not be buying this one again.

Appearance: light amber in color with a one inch head that slowly falls to a spotty surface covering.
Smell: light bread aroma with a hint of floral hops are the main aromatic components.
Taste: mild bready malt profile with some grass, apple sweetness, a hint of citrus, and a soft floral bitterness are most notable.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout. Short lasting aftertaste.
Overall: this is a nicely flavorful lager that is a serious session beer. This represents the style well.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a BrewDog cervoise glass.
A: Little to no head, nice effevescence, clear but hazy orange-gold.
S: Lager yeast, slightly skunky, slightly fruity, touch of hops.
T/M: Actually quite pleasant. Lemon-tart and crisp with green apples, earthy hops, and lightly dry hops and/or yeast. Crisp and drinkable.
O: I don't generally like lagers, but this one gets my seal of approval. Consumable, interesting, and goes great with food.

bottle into a pint glass. honey colored, kind of thin looking with lots of bubbles. not much white head and almost no lace
smells like honey and hops and a little bready
taste is hops, sweet, malt, hops and sweet again.
a bit thin in the mouth, feels more like a soda than a beer.
overall, pretty average, but not bad

On the tour at Lucky Bucket Brewing, a free pint came along with the tour. I'd had a bottle of the lager before with positive results, so tried a draft for comparison.
Tightly bubbled, thick, creamy head that lingers nicely as the effervescence builds the head from the bottom of the orange-amber lager. Bit dark for the stereotype of a lager, but, if I remember correctly, this is a pre-prohibition lager and fits a different style than the typical American macro-lager.
Clean malty nose with light spice, and, with a deep breathe, a hint of apple underneath. Smooth and full bodied, the spice, caramel and sweetness jump out on the tongue and linger--not typical lager characteristics, but a reason why I like this one. Refreshing on a hot day--a perfect reason to drink a lager.
