4.47/5 rDev +9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Presentation: 12oz brown with a drink before date clearly marked.
Appearance: Bright gold with a exquisite white two fingered lace that stays for a long time.
Smell: Sweet and very clean malty aroma ... reminiscent of Portuguese sweet bread.
Taste: Medium bodied with a smooth and crisp mouth feel. Very very malty with sweetness and grain ... a big kiss of hops perfectly balances this lager, touch of herbal and citrus hop flavour linger. The finish dries up a little though there is a decent amount of residual sweetness and malt flavour (grain/husk) left.
Notes: This is the stuff! A top notch US brewed lager with several awards to back it up ... comparable if not better than some of its German counterparts. If you see buy it ... any macro to micro drinker with thoroughly enjoy this brew. Goes great with a roast beef on rye at lunch time! Fact: Its their flagship brew.
Serving type: bottle
