Appearance was a deep orange with a lot of head but settled quickly. The smell was very interesting with more sweet notes than I was expecting such as vanilla and caramel as well as the classic toasted malt smell. The taste was very refreshing with earthy tones starting off blending into sweeter flavors into the finish. Really enjoyed this one.

Presentation: It was poured from a 12 oz can into small German style mug. The can lists the abv at 5.5% abv and there is a short description of the beer as well.

Appearance: The color is a beautiful deep orange amber with great clarity and plenty of visible carbonation. From the aggressive pour I got a tall, white and frothy head. It settles down fairly quick and just maintains a wispy thin film covering. Lacing is minimal and very slick.

Smell: It has a very malty nose with earthy hops for balance. Mostly I pick notes of caramel, toffee, fresh bread.

Taste / Palate: The flavor is classic German lager all the way. It has a fresh bready maltiness loaded with a nutty, caramel and nougat like character. Hops adds a light earthy dryness and bitterness. The feel is right on for the style and very drinkable.
