4/5 rDev +7%
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a plastic 24oz cup.
A: Beautiful crystal clear copper color. Aggressive pour leads to a fluffy white 2 finger head that disappears after a few minutes.
S: Hop notes on top of a malt backbone. Slight yeasty notes as well as some grains and fruit.
T: Malts and hops flip flop from the nose with the wonderful caramel and two-row malts coming through brilliantly with hop bitterness added in for good measure.
M: Light body, perfect carbonation. Aftertaste sticks for a minute then leaves you wanting more and more.
O: Excellent lager. Probably one of the best lagers I've ever head. Extremely drinkable, could easily pop a sixer without thinking too hard about it.

3.63/5 rDev -2.9%
Poured from a 16 oz can into a shaped pint.
Pours a light amber color with a mild head of almost two fingers. Mild lacing and mild carbonation.
Smells of herbal and earthy hops with some fruity and sweet malt to mix things up.
Like the nose is alluding to, this is a pretty balanced beer, although it errs on the side of malty. Sweet malts with notes of fruit and caramel are restrained by an herbal and resinous hop note that breaks up the monotony of typical amber lagers.
A bit on the wet side, surpisingly medium bodied.
For some reason, there's something about this beer that doesn't make it great. Perhaps the malts are too strong or the hops are too bitter and generic, but this is just a good/ok beer and nothing exceptional. Worth drinking over a Boston Lager, though, maybe even a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

3.9/5 rDev +4.3%
Appearance: It has a nice cloudy golden/copper color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down slowly and leaves nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of bready and toasty malts with some floral and grassy hops and some light caramel notes.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice sweet malt character to it with some floral/earthy hops bringing a slight bitterness and has a slight fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.
