I've been impressed with all GL beers so far, so I was looking forward to a style I am not as familiar with.
A: Pours a bright gold, almost coppery color with a small head that quickly dissapates.
S: Nose is very clean with a slight malty flavor
T: Clean and crisp malt flavors with just a hint of hop bitterness that subsides quickly.
M: Has a crisp, palate cleaning quality
D: The malt and hops balance make this a pretty easy drinking lager, although the abv is a bit high for a sessions beer.
Seems like a good example of the style, a nice beer, and a good way to introduce macro drinkers to the joys of craft beer.
