I like this beer it's great!!!. I have had lots and lots of different beers, wines and distilled spirits in my travels and having lived in various countries around the world. This is a beer like the Lager/Pilsen types that I've enjoyed in the Czech Republic, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and Hungary. The Micro brew movement in the U.S. is turning out some really world class brews. Cheers mates! and keep up the bleedin' great work!!!!!

12oz can with no canned on or best by date poured into a Becker glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color and 2 fingers of head

Smell: Malty and grainy

Taste: Biscuity malts with a decent bitterness and little to no hop flavor

Mouthfeel: Crisp and light

Overall: Nothing too complex here. Just a solid lager with a decent hop bitterness. Reminds me a lot of Carlsberg or other European lagers without the skunkiness.

This one pours a rich golden color with a thick rich head that is bready in texture and settles slowly leaving an adequate amount of lacing down the glass.

The nose is sweet malt, mild pepper, grass and orange zest.

The taste is complimentary to the nose with a very dry malt that has a bitter flavor dominating the malt. Not a lot of complexity here.

The mouthfeel is just right for a lager, not to watery and not to rich.

Overall this is a drinkable lager but not exceptional. A good example to be sure, but not my favorite either. I recommend trying it and seeing if it is to your liking.
