4/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - This lager has a pleasant deep gold color. A fairly small head.

Smell - This lager smelled of malt, but not strongly, and of honey, but only faintly. There was there was almost no scent of hops in the beer. The odor was subtle, but pleasant.

Taste - When I first sipped through the small head, I was not impressed. It had almost no flavor of hops as an introduction to the moderately bitter aftertaste. The hearty malt flavor was dominant and quite nice. Honestly, it seemed little more than a macrobeer lager. As I drank more, it really grew on me. As the beer warmed, and its underlying flavors became more prominent, I became impressed. I drank the 12 oz beer over the course of an hour and it was good to the last drop. WARNING: Drinking this beer too cold might taint the experience.

Mouthfeel - My favorite part of the beer. Very creamy and smooth for a lager.

Drinkability- After the first, I wanted another. Would complement countless dishes.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Honey yellow in color with excellent clarity. Poured with a short, bright white foam that quickly reduced to a thin wispy cap. Fresh grain, biscuit malt, fresh grass, and light herbal aromas. Medium bodied with a delicate lager feel up front followed by sharp, tongue twisting tanginess through middle and a clean, crisp, dry finish. Bready, biscuity malt flavors throughout with herbal hop tanginess through the middle. Finishes with a biscuity malt aftertaste. An awesome, refreshing, easy-drinking, malty, German lager.

Crystal clear light gold color. Small head that settles to rim bubbles. Good rim lace on the initial sip, becomes spotty thereafter.

Smooth, pleasant pale semi-malted grain smell. No hop, not that I was expecting any.

Round and grainy. A very good example of the style. On the thin side as it should be but it has ample carbonation making this very spritzy. Grainy finish with a whiff of hop pepper. Short grassy aftertaste.
