I was really suprised on the smell! I was not expecting it to smell so nice and sweet. I took a sip and swore I had tasted this before. I had Dogbite high gravity lager and it tastes similar. However, this is much smoother. As for the appearance it has an amazing color!

The look i am not sure of drinking straight from the bottle. I never drink lager beer so this is new. Smell kind of sweet like honey very pleasant. Taste the first one was kind of strong for me with a strong aftertaste. I really enjoyed the second easy to drink kinda sweet and for $6.28 for a sixpack that is a great value we can't all drink the best. But i recommend this.

12oz. bottle: Bought this at noon on a Sunday in Bay City, TX at a gas station: best thing in the store. It pours a clear amber color. There was a small off-white head on it that didn’t linger long or leave much lacing. The aroma isn’t too bad. Malts, a little grainy and earthy. It isn’t great, but really doesn’t taste too bad. A bit of caramel malt sweetness, a little grainy and just a touch of grassy hops. It’ll do in a pinch.

12-oz bottle into New Belgium globe

A - 3 fingers off-white head over a transparent body of amber; moderate carbonation visible

S - honey sweetness, toast, grassy hops

T - adjunct grains (kind of corny); honey sweetness; toasted malts; touch of grassy bitterness; grainy taste sticks around for a dry, grainy finish

M - chewy medium body, medium/high carbonation, smooth

O - The smooth lager feel is very pleasant, but nothing else really stands out.

A: A light copper color with excellent clarity and a persistent white head. The head settles to a thin film and a ring of bubbles but never goes away.

S: A medium aroma of spicy and earthy hops with a moderate toasty malt aroma.

T: The taste matches the nose with a medium-low earthy and spice hops flavor a medium hops bitterness and a medium-low malt sweetness giving it a moderately bitter balance. The malt has a nice Vienna malt toastiness to it. the finish is off-dry with a quick aftertaste of hops.

M: A creamy medium bodied beer with a medium-strong level of carbonation.

O: An good example of my favorite lager styles with good hops and malt character.
