Notes/Commercial Description:
Kräftig is the classic lager. Malt flavor up front with a slight sweetness, and a hop character that doesn't overtake it.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Poured a translucent, almost hazy (was expecting crystal clear), deep gold color. Poured with no head that didn't leave any lacing.

S - Sweet grain and a little citrus from the hops.

T - Sweet grain with just barely enough hops to balance. Very clean aftertaste. Wish there were more hops. Tastes yeasty to me too. I'm tasting something else familiar, but can't put my finger on it. Almost tastes like wheat. Maybe my taster is off tonight. Nothing bad though. Maybe it's not filtered?

M - Surprisingly full mouth feel. Crisp clean beer flavor. Carbonation tingles nicely on the tongue.

O - It's pretty good for what it is. It's not going to win any major competitions but it's a tasty, clean and unoffensive american pale lager. I think i'd like it better with another point or two of attenuation and about 50% more hops. After 3 I'm starting to get full.
