I could drink this all night. It's hot out and the sun is setting. This lager is more than appropriate.

A wonderfully herby, grassy smell accompanies the straw-yellow elixir into the glass. Even mild perfumey notes shine through. A billowy, white, fluffy cloud sits a top of my glass and it clings for dear life all the way down.

A high-quality, malty sweetness is followed by the most subtle but ample hop flavor. Crisp and full, but not heavy in the mouth. A fruit flavor that fills the mouth. I even taste a note of violety, smooth goodness. The finish is rather smooth and unassuming. The carbonation is right on.

Really nice choice.
Would be nice with some spicy food. (I had some vegetarian chili with mine.) :)

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

16.9 ounce bottle poured into a Wicked Weed snifter

A - crystal clear medium gold with a nice two inch head with spectacular retention and lacing

S - The nose is not particularly notable. Bit of a fresh smell.

T - This is just a great tasting lager. Very crisp and full bodied with a clean finish.

M - medium thick, great carbonation.

O - what's not to love. It is not overly complex, but it is just a great beer.
