3.78/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A: Nice clear orange/light brownish colour, about a finger thick frothy head that stays for a long time, little lacing
S: Sweet malty smell, not much hops, slightly fruity
T: Strong malts, rather mild hop-bitterness (as the smell suggests), a little caramel shining through. Very nice and intersting malty aromas, present, yet rather on the aftertaste hops, that are more of a floral component, not much of a bitter thing...
M: Carbonation feels just right, but a pretty average mouthfeel
O: Good lager beer, beautiful colour, high drinkability, appealing hops and a very good malty taste.

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.
