Clear amber color with a thin head.
Nice aroma, especially for a lager with citrusy notes.
Very good flavor, mild notes of grapefruits and yeast spices like you would have in some ales, over a sweet malt base. Dry and mildly bitter aftertaste.
Light body with a good carbonation and a zesty feeling.
Perfect session beer, outstanding for a Lager. Light, flavorful, very well balanced.
