Gorgeous 2 finger cream head that is thick and foamy. Beautiful sunset amber clear enough to see through. Sheets of lacing.
Caramel malts blend with grassy floral hops to promise a tasty refreshing beer.
The taste is a step down from that wonderful preview by the appearance and smell. Coppery malts hit first and then a slow lemony zing which is quickly forgotten as the finish takes over. A sort of metallic, roasted floral flavor. As it warms, the hops proceed to dominate the endnote. They are not overwhelming, but are a bit too predominant for my personal tastes.
The body of this beer is indeed a smooth malty seductress. Lightly carbonated throughout with a snappy finish.
Honestly I could confuse this with a pale ale what with the American hops leading the show. Easy to drink but not what i was hoping for when I grabbed a lager. Perhaps with a different mindset this would have been more impressive to me.
