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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle poured into a pils glass
A: Golden color with a one-finger head that slowly settles
S: Full aromatics of raw grain & a hint of coriander
T: Rich biscuit/malt up front and a slightly herbal finish
M: Light bodied, smooth with pleasant carbonation
O: If the big American brewers would make lagers half this good, I would be much more inclined to drink them. This is what the style should be

Finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
Excellent aroma of grain and honey.
Pretty good tasting too. It has medium bitterness throughout with a touch of sweetness in the middle.
Crisp and medium body, moderate carbonation.
A delicious lager.
