4.3/5 rDev +17.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck bottle with no legible freshness date.
Appearance: Orangey tarnish copper hue with a bright clarity, thick froth forms and subsides to a dainty and creamy off white lace.
Smell: Sweet toasted malt aroma with a soft perfume-like hop twang to match, clean with a fresh grain smell.
Taste: Carbonation is at a moderate level, creamy slick mouth feel of malt within the firm medium body. Soft toasted malt flavours surround the taste buds and leave bursts of grain, bread and caramel. Melanoidian flavours of concentrated malt pops up in the middle, soft graininess is throughout. Hops are controlled with their bitterness and drop a light sharpness on the tongue. Bit of hop flavour is there but barely noticeable with suggestions of herb and flowers. The multi-leveled malt character shows each layer of complexity; breadiness, soft grain, caramel and toasted husk. On the sweet side, big malt residuals are left in the finish with undertones of toasted malt and a surprising long lasting hop finish also to make for a pleasant ending.
Notes: Very drinkable with big malt complexities. If you like sizeable malty lagers this will be a treat for you. Big enough to pair up with some schnitzel and kraut.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4
A: brownish brick red in color, clear with a finger tip of white head, no noticeable lacing.
S: Like most light lagers, not a lot to smell here but there are noticeable malty toasted scents.
T: This is a pretty malty brew, sweet, soft but hoppy notes at the finish. Leaves a sweet, mildly bitter after taste.
M: Light bodied, medium to high carbonation, which confirms the smell and taste.
Overall: Good solid light bodied malty style lager, though may not be right for those who do not enjoy the malty sweetness.
