look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Poured from a bottle has a light golden color. Beer was clear. Poured it into a tall glass....half an inch of head...that disappeared rapidly (in under a minute).

Smell: A clean and crisp smell. Light. Narrow -- as in not complex.

Taste: Very smooth, very narrow (again, not complex). Mild flavors. No hoppy taste at all.

Mouthfeel: The later sips were more flavorful and "refreshing". Exposure to air made it taste better.

Overall: A straight and narrow lager. Not complex. Mild flavor -- no hoppy taste at all. Light golden color.

A-Bright golden color...a lot of carbonation bubbles

S-Grassy aroma with some light noble hop spiciness..

T-Nice maltiness for a lager...slightly sweet with some vanilla notes...grassy hops on the finish.

M-Clean looking and clean tasting...body is about right...ample carbonation but not excessive..

O-Overall this is a quality lager a step up from the macro's but a tep down from the German's...
