A: Golden with a slight old gold look, like tarnished gold or brass. Medium low carbonation, a finger of off white head that fades relatively fast.
S: Skunk, deep malty, light roasted malty quality, sweet like honey.
T: Sweet, bready, malty, honey, like honey on fresh biscuits. Clean linen quality, little bitterness on the end.
M: Medium light bready body, medium heated carbonation.
O: Truly a delicious beer, a standard for this style and the best I’ve yet found it in. Got this at Greenville, SC’s Whole Foods Market today, drank in Walterboro, SC.

Poured from a half-liter (17 ounce) Euro-brown bottle into a shaker pint. I go fairly aggressive on the pour and get a short-lived, yet chunky and creamy looking head. The beer is a pale or extra-pale golden with high carbonation.
My poor nose gets a faint grassy aroma along with a little DMS. The flavor is lightly malty and quite grainy with just enough hop bitterness to balance. The hops lend a grassy and slightly herbal character. The malt flavors are somewhat reminiscent of Malt-O-Meal cereal, and very creamy and delicious overall. There are no in-your-face flavors and it is very easy to drink. The mouth feel is creamy and full and actually stick a little to the back of the mouth. The finish is crisp and tingly with just a touch of fading bitterness.
This everything one could ask for in a lager beer and I give it high marks. I think I paid only about 4-something for the half liter, which ain't too bad considering it came halfway around the world from here. It's good to see more variety in my town (Butte, Montana, purchased at the Hennessey).
