Really digging this beer. Only downside is that it may have just started to turn. Just a tad cardboard flavor going on. Poured a rich copper color. Thin white head that dissolved nearly immediately. Nose is malty but not much else.

Flavor is rich malts with just the slightest hint of sulfur. Toasted biscuits and French bread. Hops are mildly sprucey but balance out nicely with the malts. Hop flavor linger around the tongue well after each sip. Light mouthfeel. Very nice beer to have on a summer day. Would not mind getting my hands on a few more bottles of these.

Serving type: bottle

3.83/5  rDev +4.9%

Appearance - Deep amber color; translucent. Large 3 finger cream-colored head when poured; dies down quickly leaving an uneven layer of foam on the surface of the beer. Lots of medium bubbles.

Smell - Interesting very malty aroma. Slightly nutty.

Taste - Begins with a very nice malty flavor, followed by a smooth medium hoppy flavor with a mildly dry finish. Nice and refreshing. Full flavored for a lager.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation, somewhat effervescent. Nice.

Overall - Very nice lager, flavorful. I enjoyed it and would gladly have another. While it did not blow me away, it was a very solid basic craft beer.
