Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed golden amber color with a small one finger white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a decent level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is somewhat bready and grainy with a nice hop hit mainly of a grassy and light pine smell. Along with these aromas comes some notes of a sweeter nature with a little bit of caramel and honey sweetness.

Taste – The taste begins with a slightly grainy bread taste with a decent showing of a grassy hop right from the start. There is a lighter level of sweetness that is present upfront, being of some caramel and a bit of tangerine. The sweeter flavors fade a bit, but do maintain a presence to the end. All while the sweet fades, other hop flavors of a light pine and grapefruit citrus come to the tongue. In the end, the combination of flavors that is left on the tongue leaves a nice crisp and clean lager taste to linger in the mouth.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on average in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. For the lager style and the blend of hop and sweet it is a pretty good feel overall; not allowing either to become overbearing, but all the while allowing each to be appreciated.

Overall – A rather easy drinking and tasty lager with a good blend of light sweetness, breadiness, and hop.
