Dusty yellow approaching orange beer that has a mild fog to it. The cap is strong,firm and the color of playsand. A solid but not out of this world start.
The nose is plain Jane but not in a bad way. Clean malts and a sharp handful of hops give this beer a simple but delicious ale bouquet.
The taste is vy much like the nose with the malts being crisp, clean and the flavor of lightly toasted white bread. The hops are present but don't over power the malts which is slightly disappointing given the claim of "IPA style" on the bottle. I was expecting a little more punch from these guys. Even if this is a lager beer there are others out there that have a more pronounced hop profile.
Mouthfeel is again very clean and crisp from the lagering. The hops do have a slight pinch of astringency by my molars and there is a lovely dryness to this beverage. I like the simple and direct flavors but wish this beer had more of a hop punch. Still a fine brew and worth drinking if you come across it.
