Just not a good lager for my tastes. Almost to sweet for me.

Drank this right out of the bottle at Just Jakes in Montclair. Nice and crisp but nothing totally stood out. Probably my mistake by drinking this directly after a stronger IPA, I may not have gotten the full effect. Overall, enjoyable enough though.

A solid session lager pouring a light clear yellow gold in the pint glass with a decent solid head and light lacing. Nose of grains, light sweet malts, light bread, and herbal hops. Flavors are exceptional for a standard lager with mild grains and light sweet malts offset by light herbal bittering hops. Very nice indeed. Finishes crisp and clean. An excellent session lager.

Cheers

Poured into a pint glass and consumed 4 December 2014. Enjoy by date of 8 February 2015.

Look: Pours a bright, clear, bubbly gold. Huge head eventually settles down to about an eighth of an inch and stays there. Bubbles pleasingly up the glass the whole time.

Smell: Like a decent lager.

Taste: Like a good lager. Did not notice the bitter finish that at least one other reviewer did.

Feel: More substance to it than most lagers. You don't immediately think "water substitute" when you drink it.

Overall: Would be a fine party or tailgating beer.

A. Looks like an average lager.
S. Smells like an average lager.
T. Tastes like decent clean lager ... and then an evil bitter aftertaste that just keeps going.
F. Right carbonation for a lager.
O. Still looking for the salsa to get rid of the wrong type of bitter that's still hanging around.
