Wisconsin

4.59/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Brilliantly clear orange color so you can watch every tiny bubble rise to the bright white head. When poured it formed a modest 1 finger tall but sustained for a minute or two before dropping to a dusting on the top leaving a coat on the edge of the glass.

S: Slightly fruity yeast esters mixed with a grainy yet sweet malt aroma. Very low noble hop aroma.

T: Crisp and clean malty flavors from beginning to end. Bread crust, pizza crust and dough. There is enough bitterness to keep the beer balanced and not overly sweet and a distinct fruity yeast character to finish of the beer.

M: Crisp with a light body and moderate carbonation. A slight grainyness on the tounge after a few sips.

O: A clean, flavorful, balanced, extremely drinkable lager. No doubt this is something I would buy again for any occation. This would even be a great gateway beer for someone looking to get away from BMC
