Pours a light coppery amber with around two fingers of light butterscotch foam. Aroma is mellow, pilsner malt, a bit of toast, maybe a hint of green apple. Standard lager nose. Palate was malt galore, toasty bread sticks and some citrus pith. Nice hops to balance the malt with little discernable sweetness. Hops are a bit peppery, vegetal/herbal, perhaps a hint of rhubarb sourness. A metallic ting in the finish. I am an ale drinker by preference but this sort of malty, hoppy lager makes a nice change of pace. Could be a bit sweeter.

Out of a 22oz. bomber bay and into a mug for a much anticipated beverage to accompany my weekend R&R.

A conquering tan head sits strong and patient atop this reddish brown brew.

Sweet malts and grass to the nose with a whiff of spent grain and resin after a short interregnum.

Sweet and fluid going down the hatch. A division of caramel malts are met head on with a battalion of hops to form a truce in the middle of the battlefield. Some platoons of apple and pear join up after the armistice.

Its smooth and peaceful sailin' from here on out with a cool wind bringing up the aft and no swells in sight. A great beer to celebrate your victories and reflect on your defeats with.

Look, this is the beer you use to introduce your friends to the better beer world! This lager is the most refreshing, tasty, and satisfying lager I have ever had. This one has a perfect level of carbonation that balances out the mouthfeel perfectly. The taste is still a lager, which means not as flavorful as an ale or stout but this is much better than bud.
