look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Golden body with a ever-so-slightly off-white frothy head, leaving lots of nice lacing.

The aroma consists of toasted barley malt and some herbal, floral hops.

As for the taste, the hop bitterness comes in at the first of the sip, with a slight floral-ness, then leaving you to a nice mouthful of toasted barley malts, with some sweetness, and an almost undetectable bitterness.

The drinkability is extremely high. It's smooth, and the mouthfeel is on the light side of medium; and the carbonation is high in the mouthfeel as well as the palate.

This is a damn good beer. Best lager I've ever had. Screw the critics. This is gold, lager or not.
