4.18/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Pours a clear pale gold color, with a 1/2" white head that soon dissipates. There's tons of active carbonation dancing from the bottom of the glass up, making this an attractive beer to watch.

Smell is grainy, almost biscuity, with hints of aromatic hops, straw, and floral notes. Clean and easy smelling, like "beer" should.

Slightly sweet tasting, with hints of lemon, bready malt, and just a nip of spicy hop to finish. There's a slight "metallic" taste on the back end that is my only real knock against how this tastes.

Light bodied and pretty crisp, this is a clean, very easy drinking beer. Light on the mouth, with just the slightest tang as it hits the tongue, everything about the feel of this beer makes you want to take another sip.

A great lager, I could easily drink this all day. It is as if the beer is evaporating from the glass, each sip becoming a greedy pull, leaving you thirsty for more. A definite try if you've got Stoudt's in your area.
