Pours a brownish color with little head. Very faint smell. A decent little lager. Malty and an easy finish. Nothing spectacular here. Overall good though.

A: Nice amber orange with a dirty white head.

S: Light caramel maltiness, yeasty in the nose.

T: Taste is toasted malt, dry yeast, bit of green bitterness. A "malty" lager on first blush but it's quite dry compared to other amber lagers.

M: Light-bodied, creamy, crisp carb.

O: Definitely grew on me. Nice to have a sweeter lager that's not overly sweet.
