Poured into a Tulip as I wanted to bring out all the aromas of this beer. Honey colored body with medium carbonation. Smells of strong caramel notes,bready, malty and a hint of orange peel. Strong hints of bisuit tells me this style of lager stands out a bit from the others.Flavor: Malty, hoppy, bready and finishes with a punch in the face of honey . Flavours stuck around on the palate for a nice while before eventually disappearing which made me want to go back for more. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation which makes this beer very easy drinking and a good session beer at any circumstance.
Overall this was a very enjoyable beer. I could see myself drinking this on a cold snowy night here in Colorado or with a greasy hamburger or hotdog. For the price and availability this is an A+ beer.
