Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "enjoy before date" October 2014.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear amber color with one finger off-white head that dissipated slowly until a thin unbroken layer of bubbles remained, medium carbonation and significant lacing on the glass.

SMELL: bread and caramel and some mild spice.

TASTE: initially sweet caramel, toasty, then a mild hop profile.

PALATE: medium carbonation and body.

OVERALL: this is a good lager, more hoppy than most lagers. I'm not a huge fan of the lager style but, I enjoy them on occasion.
