DATE TASTED: December 1, 2013... GLASSWARE: standard pilsner...OCCASION: Christmas tree-trimming and decorating... APPEARANCE: clear as crystal golden body; thin, filmy, off-white head; steady effervescence; thick, screening lacing is surprisingly attractive... AROMA: malty base; some bubblegum and dough--not really articulated... PALATE: a bit creamy; crisp and clear--surprisingly smooth...TASTE: woody aftertaste follows a swift, slightly metallically hopped profile; as macro lagers go, inoffensive...OVERALL: a good compliment for the pita chips I'm eating now--palate-cleansing and soft...

Serving type: can

BOTTOM LINE: This is a light lager that tastes like most other light lagers. A little aluminum-y tasting. Mostly clean. Good mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

This is a good beer to have with sushi, because it does not have too much flavor to detract from the delicate flavors of the fish. A slight hint of hops, a slight bit of malt, something that reminds me of lemon (that might be the aluminum), and a little bit reminiscent of tea.

This is my go to Sake Bomb beer, for what it's worth.
