A: Amber color, with very good head retention and lacing. Moderate carbonation.
S: Nice and hoppy.
T: Awesome full flavor with hints of smoke and nuts. Grainy backbone. Pretty hoppy compared to even great pale lagers. Flavor is from the quality 2 row and cystal malts and maybe carapils for body and head as well as great hops.
M: Full mouthfeel and body.
O: This is a full blown real beer with no thought to anything but a full flavored(malts and hops) lager. It's fully hopped and malted with crystal malts for a nice amber color. This is a man's beer and might not be a session type lager because it so full bodied and good. Beer the way it used to be I think.

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.
