Pours a brilliant crystal clear pale gold with a finger of bubbly white head that leaves some lacing.
Very grainy malt nose, almost sticky sweet in the background, wonderful crisp pale malt and a balanced boquet of hops to spice it up.
The flavor is again the very grain-forward body with that sweetness sneaking in behind it. A good spread of bittering hops lay over everything and really blend with the malt perfectly.
Has an almost pilsner-like finish but the sweet grain hangs around a bit, German hops linger and clean up afterwords. Light to medium body, a little spice from carbonation, supremely smooth and easy to drink.
There's a reason this is GLBC's flagship brew. A simply amazing lager all around. Go try it now, it will not disappoint.
