Bottle into a pint glass.

A: Nice crystal clear golden amber, lots of carbonation. produced two fingers of head that reduced to a skim and left minimal lacing.

S: Bready, toasted malts, grainy sweetness, light spice notes.

T: Again, bready toasted caramel malts, very sweet overall with minimal hop bitterness.

M: Light bodied, crisp and refreshing. Maybe a bit watery, but for the style not too bad.

O: For a light lager this is pretty good. Not a great beer by any means but for the style, it does it right.
