Color - dark brown with a reddish tint. Still transparent, I can see through it in the light of the bar. The pour had almost no head and left traces of foam on the glass. I'm beginning to think Lager's has a problem with their pressure settings.
Smell - (through a congested nose) fruity and flowery.
Taste - different for sure. This is a light beer by my standards. I can't place the fruit, but it's almost like grapejuice (the purple stuff), with hop bitterness and the flowers again.
Mouthfeel - the beer seemed not far from flat: perhaps by design, perhaps by bad regulator settings (see above and my Ayinger Octoberfest review). In any case, not much fizziness in the beer and a medium-light mouthfeel.
Serving type: on-tap
