12oz bottle, best by Sept 2010.
Pours amber with a two finger off-white head that is quite pillowy and rocky. Leaves some nice rings of lacing.
Aroma is floral hops, some fruit, biscuit, toast, light caramel malt, an attention-getting aroma for a lager, and the flavor follows suit...
Nicely hopped overall, very floral, some citrus with good bitterness that is balanced very well against some sweet caramel malt and bread. Nice, enjoyable finish, very tasty and refreshing.
Medium body, slick, good carbonation.

On tap at LaGuardia airport in New York into a stein.
A-My pour arrived with about one and one-half fingers of sticky, off-white head. Lacing was chunky at first. The beer is light-golden in color with a bit of active carbonation visible in the clear liquid.
S-The aroma is mild as you would expect. I smell some toasted bread, biscuit, and a bit dry, grassy hops. Pleasant and simple.
T-The taste tracks the smell mostly. The beer is pleasantly crisp, not quite sharp, but certainly not a sweet, malty monster. There is some grain flavor, toasted bread, biscuit, and hints of hoppy bitterness on the finish.
M-The body is medium to light with crisp carbonation of average strength.
O-A simple but enjoyable beer. This thing won't take you away from your Pliny or BCBS habit, but if you need a decent, easy drinking beer at the airport bar, this is a good choice.
