beautiful, almost champagne-like pour with lots of carbonation. lively brew! lively yellow color. a bit dry. takes me back to "the day" when I was venturing out, branching out on my beer and realizing there is more to beer than Michelob and Lowenbrau. Old World Village in Huntington Beach is where I got my first tastes at 17 and haven't looked back. great memories. great beer. Germany still rules..... if this is a LAGER, than this is one of the best representations of it.

Just about the very definition of that classic German lager. Highly carbonated, very clear. Almost no hop flavor but clean malts.
