4.08/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Wiseman Zach brought this back from his trip to Rochester. Thanks bud!

Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: A half inch of soft, glistening, foam sits atop a crystal clear, amber body. Carbonation looks pretty fierce, and head retention is excellent. Surprisingly nice lacing for a lager, too. I'm impressed.

Smell: Sweet, clean, malt and citric hops. Lager yeast and toasted malt aromas come out more as the beer warms, though the lager yeast aroma is pretty light overall. Pleasant and enjoyable, but nothing to write home about.

Taste: Mild lager yeast and citric, grassy hops peak through a sturdy, wholegrain base. Grains are very present upfront, but the hops and carbonation lead to a nice sharp finish. The yeast flavors pick up strength in the aftertaste. I'm really enjoying this beer so far.

Mouthfeel: Malty, crisp, clean, and not too light. The aftertaste is mild, but long-lasting and tasty.

Drinkability: This is a great lager! It would be one of my go-tos if it was available out here. Thanks again Zach.
