Nice golden amber in color, with a rich, white foam. Lovely, frilly lace.
Aroma is malty, grainy --rich and full on the nose. Quite appealing! This is not your typical American lager already...
Flavor is full and complex, with strong malts up front, and a light kick of hops later, towards the finish.
This is an unusually complex and drinkable lager. Not even comparable to the usual adjuncts, this is my favorite of the style. A real winner.

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.
