Served cold into a standard pint glass from a 12 oz brown bottle.
Pours a bright copper color forming a nice off white head.
Aroma is slightly sweet with a notable spicy and herbal hop presence.
Flavor is fabulous. This beer is the perfect lager, I've never had a better example of the style. It's got a bold malty flavor and fine dry finish.
Mouthfeel is good, but a bit too sharp and sparkling. I'd enjoy it if it had a softer bite, maybe if it had a bit more body.
Drinkability is great. This is a fine session beer for me, loads of flavor without being heavy. I don't remember it being this good the last time I had it, maybe it came from a different brewery or was fresher. Worth buying by the case.

3.35/5 rDev -10.7%

Large fluffy head with good lacing. The head sticks around for a long time. Beautiful light copper colored beer. Very clear. Moderate carbonation with large bubbles.
Hops are dominant. Some malt sweetness in the background.
Tastes like it smells, but with a slightly harsh bitterness to the finish. There is just something about the flavor profile that I don't like. It is too harsh for the style. It tastes like the ingredients are good quality. It just comes across as unpleasantly harsh on the finish.
Medium bodied. Good mouthfeel, but that weird lingering harshness detracts from the experience.
This is a pretty good beer that for some reason just doesn't sit right with my palate.
