Appearance- Golden.

Smell- fresh bread.

Taste- crisp lightly hopped finish. Refreshing, extremely easy to drink. Great middle of the road beer

Overall- A great session beer choice and possibly the best lager I have tried.

A most delicious gold lager

Appearance- Golden, thin head that dissipates quickly.

Smell- Yeasty sweetness like fresh bread.

Taste- Like a Budweiser should have tasted, pale malts leading into a crisp lightly hopped finish. Refreshing, delicately flavored, extremely easy to drink. This would be ideal for playing some beer pong or other drinking games. If this was a macrobrew it would be by far the greatest beer ever.

Mouthfeel- Thin, perfectly carbonated, dry finish.

Overall- A great session beer choice and possibly the best lager I have tried.
