12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. Deep golden color with a rich creamy head. Smell is slightly hoppy. Taste of caramel malt and grains combine for a silky, creamy palate. Good carbonation. Balanced, dry, slightly bitter finish. It’s hard to find fault here. It’s just a fine basic lager that is, thankfully, widely available. A standard.
