Moderate pour from bottle as shown yields a nice white two-finger head over a clear orange-amber body. Ample lacing in drink lines. One of the prettiest lagers I've seen.
I'm usually not crazy about lagers, but this one has a wonderful maltiness right away in the aroma. Strong biscuit malt, bread dough aromas. Floral hops. Raisin bread. Mmmm. Smells very good. Is that a note of smoke.
Taste is similar to the aroma, though the hops are more up front and the malt is more long-lasting. Pine-hops bitterness in the finish. And that hint of smoke?
Mouthfeel is nice a creamy, unexpectedly so for a lager style.
Very drinkable -- more flavor than one would expect for 4.9%.
