Pours golden colored with half a finger width foamy head. Only a small amount of lacing on the side. Aroma is that of tropical fruits and hops. Citrusy. Has a hint of apples as well. Malty taste with hints of citrusy tropical fruit up front, quickly followed by a grassy hoppy taste. You can discern that malty lager taste right at the end but only for a split second. Nice bitter aftertaste. I am generally not a fan of lagers, but this one definitely will do. Excellent beer. I wish it is more available at the Spec's near me.

3.83/5  rDev -3.3%

Appearance: Pours out with a slightly hazy golden color and a modest head that splashes some lace around

Smell: A bit grainy but the hops dominate, bringing a floral, tropical tone

Taste: The bready opening is quickly followed by a deft touch of the floral, tropical hops; the grainy elements take over after the swallow and there is a bit of a soapy, vegetal character in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not a bad lager at all; a few off tastes but overall quite enjoyable

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity
