Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a darker straw color with a small white head that dissipates slowly and leaves great lacing. Smells of malt dominantly and some sweet tones, possibly from hops, but cannot put my finger on it. Tastes of sweet malt with a a little bite of hops, but definitely on the malt heavy side, which is fine for a basic lager, but this one is superiority more flavorful than most American lagers. Carbonation a tad heavy, but not offensively so. Goes down smooth with no bad aftertastes and definitely sessionable. Overall, a very good beer and one of my mainstays when I go to bars with not much selection of on tab beers, as many will have this one.
