3.4/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear yellow colour with lots of small bubbles and an off-white head.

Dry, malty smell with hop aromas and hints of yeast.

Rather pleasant taste with malts and floral hops. Well balanced bitterness in the finish.

The carbonation is what saves the day and help bring forth the malts and the hops of a brew that would otherwise be a little boring.

3.19/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Golden color with a thick one finger head with medium retention.
Aroma of caramel malt that is gradually substituted by herbal and floral hops. Hints of minerals and honey.
Flavor of sweet pale malt, bread, floral hops, honey, minerals, grass, mild lemon and oranges, and oxidized apples. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with low carbonation.
This seems to be well behind its prime date, so the rating is a bit unfair, though I tried to compensate it a bit.

4.16/5  rDev +15.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours clear and golden with hints of copper and a fourth inch of head atop that sticks around for awhile and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass as you drink. Carbonation levels look solid. Very inviting for a lager.

S: Toasty malts, vanilla and butter with slight floral hop notes lingering in the background.

T: Follows the aroma quite well. Sweet grains with buttered biscuits, toffee, vanilla and cream give way to a lingering bitterness that morphs into a bittersweet flavor on the tongue after the swallow.

M: Light bodied, smooth and creamy with slight chewiness. Carbonation is tamer than expected. Super sessionable.

O: Honestly one of the better lagers I've had the pleasure of drinking. Simple, but well done. If you're looking for refreshment or drinkability, look no further.
