3.58/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: Poured from a growler into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours with a thin but complete coating of white foam. this settles slowly, eventually dropping to a ring around the glass and a few wisps of foam. Some lacing remains. The beer itself is bright gold with just a slight chill haze.

Smell: Sweet caramel malt with hints of vegetal hops. Slight hints of smoke.

Taste: Caramel malt upfront with a biscuity malt backbone. Slight notes of honey. Vegetal hop flavor yields to a medium bitterness in the finish, lingers well after the sip.

Mouthfeel: Average carbonation level. Body is very good.

Drinkability: A flavorful, yet easy drinking lager. LBC seems to be doing more and more seasonals recently, and several lagers.
