3.49/5 rDev +19.5%
4.7 % ABV version.
The colour is yellow with some gold (6 EBC), the liquid is clear. The three finger head is white, firm, uneven and compact. It sinks slowly leaving lots of lacing.
The smell is sweet with some floral notes. Hints of minerals and butter.
The taste is bitter than expected, and less sweet. Very slight notes of corn and flowers. French loaf and a touch of black pepper. Medium body. The aftertaste is a bit dense with growing sweetness and metallic bitterness. The finish is short with distinct iron flavours.
The carbonation is medium to strong; the many very small bubbles are long-lived and fresh. The liquid is semi-smooth.
Better than expected, almost no off-flavours at all.

3.65/5 rDev +25%
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a very decent and solidy stable white foamy head.
The aroma is easily picked up, mostly grainy and malty.
The taste is pleasantly bitter, no initial sweetness and watery feel, nicely balanced body, coming together with more than nice bitterness.
Very nice for a lager, actually one of the better ones lately.

2.26/5 rDev -22.6%
12 oz bottle. Pours golden with fluffy white head and soda like carbonation. Nose is of some pale malt and hint of hops. Body is light and crisp. Taste is of sweet malt balanced by some hop bitterness. Finish is almost non-existent. Typical pale lager.
