4.22/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A very clear, pale-gold beer with a fizzy, white head. Bread and fresh hay aroma. The taste is smooth and creamy, despite the hop bitterness, with a slight metallic aftertaste that is not unpleasant. A very clean flavor. Finishes with a slight residual sweetness. Pretty high carbonation.

Overall, a beer with finesse. Very drinkable.

Serving type: bottle

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.
