On tap at Stillwater in Augusta GA.

Pours clear, amber in color, with fluffy a bit off-white head.

Smell provides malty base and a crisp, floral touch of hops.

Taste follows the nose (I like that) Malty, sweet notes upfront, then a nice crisp bite of hops.

In my mind, malt and hops work together perfectly. This makes for a well balanced brew with good mouthfeel and a pleasant aftertaste. Very drinkable. Will be having more of these

A - Slightly hazy brown/amber with half a finger of off white head. Good head retention.

S - Nutty with a good background of that general lager smell. Fruity hops make an appearance too.

T - Slight roasted malts coupled with that nut flavor dominate. Slightly yeasty flavor as well. Great malt backbone.

M - Medium body, slightly drying finish with a long-lasting sweet malt aftertaste.

O - One of my favorite lagers. Definitely a go-to beer if I can't make up my mind.

This beer poured out as a decent looking golden amber color with a foamy white head on top. The head settles and leaves minimal lacing on the glass. The smell of the beer had some caramel elements and some lager yeast aromas coming off of it. The taste of the beer was pretty good, it wasn't anything over the top but had a good drinkablity to it. The malts and hops are pretty well balanced in my opinion here. The mouthfeel was pretty good, nicely carbonated and fairly smooth. Overall it's a good drinking beer for anytime of the year.
