Notes/Commercial Description:
Pure and crisp this is a beer with nothing to hide. Wisconsin two-row barley malt ensures a mellow and smooth body. We imported Noble Hop varieties from Germany and the Czech Republic to ensure a fine mature aroma with no coarse bitterness.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Crystal clear straw to lemony yellow. A finger or two of nice fluffy head. A very pretty bear.

Smell: Pretty clean, mostly malt with a bit of herbal of floral and a bit less than that herbal hoppiness.

Taste: Clear and brisk lager. Some grassiness. Well balanced malt and hops throughout with just a faint hint of citrus to go with the herbal and floral hops. Just a touch of bitterness, again in perfect balance, and a dry finish.

Moutfeel: Light lager body, just the right amount of carbonation.

This beer is everything a basic lager should be. And is the perfect reminder that a well executed basic lager is not boring or bad. Beer this clean is unforgiving when it comes to hiding mistakes and shortcuts, and this shows none.

If I lived in Wisconsin my fridge would always be stocked with this, particularly in the summer months.

Pours a HUGE, bellowing, dense, white head that has good persistence and laces the glass like crazy. Distinctive noble hop aroma is slightly spicy with a touch of sweetness. Crystal clear, golden hue. Starts off with a touch of floral hops, a touch of spiciness and sweet malt. No building of bitterness, instead the malt takes the wheel and ramps this up into a sizeable, delicious, bready malt backbone. The finish is DECADES of deep, grain and breadiness; it just lasts and lasts. A touch of floral hops will peek through if you let the finish settle.
It even has this wonderful, thick, luscious, silky feel in your mouth. It's not thin, but it's not thick.

Holy hell. This is beyond amazing. Dare I say, "perfect"?
It is EVERYTHING a malt-centric lager should be; delicious, refined, and masterfully balanced. It's, literally, like drinking a loaf of fantastic bread.

I'm a HUGE fan of malt and lagers. This is perfect.
If you're looking to try and expand your palate and experience more malt-centric lagers, this is the PERFECT place to start.
