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

can poured into a pilsener glass. pours a straw color with four fingers of tight white head. looks like a great pale lager in the glass. wonderful rocky lacings as well.

aroma is lightly sweet, with a light pale malt note and some lager yeast in the background. basically a macro lager without the floral note.

taste is more of the same with a light character and notes of pale malts and distant bready yeast. simplistic on the palate with a lightly sweet profile and a bit of residual pale malt after the fact.

mouthfeel is light bodied and mildly crisp. finishes semi-dry with a bit of residual malt.

drinkability is good. for a pale lager, this is fresh enough, but leaves a bit to be desired. the profile is a bit bland, but ends up pleasant on the palate. this could easily get stale, which the can obviously protects, but the lager yeast character sustains the pale malts and lightly sweet profile. cheers!

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a thin head that recedes quickly. Lots of streaming carbonation and bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. Color is a deep golden. Mild lacing.
Aroma: rich aroma of toasted malt, a bit of grassiness and some hop spice. Very pleasant aroma. Mouthfeel: slightly heavier than most lagers, has a fullness in the mouth feel, almost some wine like characteristics. Finish is dry.
Flavor: nice combination that mirrors the aroma. Toasted white bread, some grassy flavors, and some mild lingering hop bitterness.

Serving type: bottle
