Nice, light smooth lager just perfect for the winter months if you are looking for a beer with taste that does not fill you too much.

Pours a light hazel color with an eggshell white head that trails the glass. The smell has bits of sweetness from the malt with some spice like nutmeg and clove coming through as well. The taste was a bit heavy with the spice and heavy characters from the malt coming through. A mainstay for the season and a very decent one at that.
