4.03/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear golden color with an off white colored heading. Little lacing throughout.

Smell is very sweet,Caramel malts throughout and a nice hop aroma is present, also a roasted aroma right off the bat.

Taste is pretty much the same as the smell. A very sweet hoppy taste that covers the mouth.

Mouth is crisp, and very smooth going down. Full bodied with great carbonation.

Drink is good a little too heavy for me today a little hot out. Maybe on a chillier night I could easily take a few more of these down.

A good American beer right here. Marvelous appearance, bold golden hue- love at first pour. It smells great. Outstanding, four stars. Yeasty American lager smell. This lager beer has an impressive taste, much more going on here with a impressionable, strong mouthfeel and taste. It lingers in your mouth as a reminder that this is not your typical domestic budweiseresque lager. Of all the lighter beers or lagers I have tried, this is one American classic I can always depend on as a quality go to brew.
