chesnut brown with a creamy white head, which does a good job of sticking to the glass. european noble hop aroma. full bodied for a lager, very smooth with a nice level of carbonation. toasted full grain flavor supremely balanced with a tobacco leaf, earthy hop bite. very well constructed. nice lingering earthy hop aftertaste, i have no problem putting down three or four of these in a row. without a doubt the most full bodied and flavorful mass produced american lager on the market, and is often an oasis in a desert of macro piss at establishments that do not take their beer seriously. how could you not like this stuff?

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.
