Classic look, if a bit light. Faded burnt orange pour. Just dark enough to keep light at bay. Fairly typical lager head, two fingers at pour, nice retention, lots of contrast between the uniform white bubbles and the orange beer. Moderate lace.

I was hoping for more in the nose. The nose picks up a standard issue pilsner, but instead of a floral citrus notes, it's very earthy. For an annivesary beer, I expected more.

This too was a letdown. Yes, there is flavor. But that's about it. No chocolate or roasty notes, again, par for the pilsner course with some savory hops. Fortunately, there is flavor, so it's not just a glorified macro, but it misses the boat for me.

Nothing to write home about. Very grainy feel with plenty of prickly carbonation. The bitterness is lingering, and very American macro lagerish. Light bodied. No alcohol presence whatsoever.

Overall, this was a huge let down. I'm not a fan of lagers and this is a perfect example. The majority of them taste the same. Despite some color and high ABV, it's hard to distinguish this from something you can find at Applebee's.
