look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From a 12 oz. bottle. My first of this style. A nice lager.

A- Nice dark pour, as in a ruby chesnut hue, with a two finger head. Nice appearing; as in, made ponder anew the lager style beers.

S- Smells sweet of caramel and malts, with slight fruitiness from the hops and grains, than less so from the yeast. Aroma had me thinking more ale than lager.

T- Very much lager in the taste, which never compares to ale, in my opinion, but the flavor was good, and much more developed than the all too popular, according to the commercials, adjunct lager style.

M- Good carbonation, but not quite crisp enough for a lager, but I liked the mouthfeel of this, more as a beer, than a lager.

O- I would rate this 3.75, but expect my overall rating to be higher than I would assign. A good, but not great beer.
