After a summer of nonstop IPA consumption, we had a touch of cooler weather and I was suddenly craving a lager.
A: Hazy dark yellow with amber highlights, and a thin layer of foam that really sticks to the glass.
S: Just a touch of bitter dry hops, citrus, and bready yeast.
T: Yeast aromas, a nice kick of dry hops, and touches of caramel and sweet malt.
M: Slightly chewy, very smooth, and not at all watery. Very good for a light-ish beer.
D: Excellent. If i happen to be in the mood for a lager, this is what I pick up. Plus, it's often on tap big chain restaurants and other places that wouldn't otherwise serve good beer.

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.
