Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a standard amber color with good clarity and an impressive craggy two fingered white fluffy head which lasts for a minute but leaves behind nice loops of lacing. Has a total aroma spectrum of noble hopping: earthy, spicing, and herbal all represented in approximately equal amounts in both the nose and in the flavor alongside a lovely caramel malt, all with a smooth medium bodied texture that has the right amount of carbonation too keep things lively in the mouth without being overly distracting. One of the staple workhorse lagers on the market, and it is not difficult to see why.
