This is probably one of my favorite american lagers along with Sam Adams. Nice color with slight cloudiness. Aroma is malty and a little hop fragrance. Very smooth on the palate unlike other lagers which have a little more effervescence to them. This was about the only beer on the menu tonight worth having. It's a shame restaurants don't give their beer selection half the attention their wine menus get.
