Clear copper gold color with a nice large head. Very nice looking lager.

sweet grainy smell

Tastes malty with a very light bit of citrus. slightly bitter hop after taste

goes down smooth has the traditional lager density very nice to sip or gulp depending the mood. Very refreshing.

This is truly a must have in the beer world. It's so unique and very exceptional.
