4.4/5 rDev +15.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
pours a too-clear dark yellow. This has obviously had the crap filtered out of it. Not much head, and what's there is white. Leaves some lacing on the glass on the way down. Nothing special here.
Smells of sticky honey'd malts, with a hint of spicy herbal hops. Whatever smells there are are faint.
Taste is fantabulous. Malts and hop bitterness is in perfect balance, leaving a clean, crisp dry finish. It's tilted towards the hoppy bitterness, but there's little hop *flavour*. I'd say this is quite similar to Pilsner Urquell in terms of sweet malt to bitter hop balance.
Mouthfeel is much bigger than typical for an american lager, and possibly a bit bigger than a bohemian pilsner even. It's smooth and refreshing, but definitely a 'present' beer with noticeable body. Very nice - both refreshing and satiating at the same time.
Overall - I like it. A lot. If I could only ever have one beer to drink forever, I'd have to consider this one. It's good from a flavour and a refreshing perspective. I do think I'd probably end up with some form of a bitter ale as a single beer if push came to shove, but I'd have to at least think about this one, too.

3.7/5 rDev -2.9%

A: I expected this to be a standard AAL so i was at first a bit surprised by the color. Amber in appearance. Nicely retained head with pretty good lacing as well.
S: Sweet malts. A faint bit of hops. Caramel and cereal grains.
T: Sweet bread crust with some nice caramel as well. Sweeter but not cloying. Hops come through a bit more on the palate then in the aroma. Slightly spicy and maybe even the slightest bit herbal but they take more of a back seat.
M: Carbonation is a bit higher but appropriate for the style. Nice light/meduim body.
O: Good beer and could be easy to drink a few of. Reminds me of sam adams or anchor steam. nice surprise.

Picked this up across the border.
Pours a mild golden color with a frothy white head into my glass. There's no dancing around anything here.
Sweet with a nice touch of hops in the nose.
Creamy texture that's a good mix of sweet and bready.
Grainy finish compliments the overall profile.
This is much more than I was expecting. Wow.
