This poured a nice clear bubbly yellow, with a good two fingers of not quite creamy foam. The aroma seems rather mild, mostly floral hops. The taste is weighted towards the hoppy end of the scale, but with a bit more than the minimum needed to balance the hops. The decent carbonation and hops combine to give a pleasing mouthfeel, very crisp. Aside from the slightly elevated alcohol, this is what US megalagers should aspire to, even though the thought seems like a bit of an abomination. But at $23 a case at Costco, the price isn't that far off.

Another beer I'm shocked I haven't gotten around to reviewing.
On tap at The Seehund. Pours a translucent light amber color with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is malty with some honey, sweet bread, caramel and floral hop notes. The taste is floral hops followed by the malts. Caramel and honey towards the end with a bit of floral hops. Medium bodied. Overall, great representation of the style.
