Rated within style, this is easily one of the best lagers I have ever had!

Poured from a really fresh keg at a friend's party, I found this to be sweet, creamy, and refreshing. Much better than the bottled version, that I had prior to my days on BA.

Worth checking out if you can get this fresh.

Tolerable but uninspired, it's like they weren't trying. I sense there's a reason this was removed from the variety pack.

Bottle BB 16 Nov 14 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of lightly roasted malt
Head small (2 cm), white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing none
Body light yellow, hazy
Flavor very light, slightly malty, ending slightly bitter. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

Appearance 2.75, Aroma 3.5, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.3125. Final weighted score: 3.425
This is a decent lager, a statement that for me is often an oxymoron. It meets the criteria for a Munich helles lager in most details, except for the presence of chill haze. Not only does it meet criteria well, it also tastes pretty good. I may have to buy some more of this.

02/20/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. So this is what an all malt taste like. Nice dry finish. Leaves a mild aftertaste that is not cloying. Prob'ly a good summer session beer with a push @ 5.9 ABV.

04/13/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. All I ask from a beer. Nothing more, nothing less. Bring it!
