Golden malty goodness. Just enough hop to keep it interesting.

This is a wonderful beer. Looks and smells great, and has a nice full malt taste with just enough hoppy bitterness. One of my all time favorites.

Pours a love, pure and clear gold with a nice, foamy white head that leaves plenty of lacing.
Very nice aroma loaded with spicy and earthy hops, biscuit and grain
Great tasting beer. I pick up a lot of spiciness from the hops, plenty of biscuit and cracker, a little cracked grain taste and a nice drying and slightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is thin to medium and a bit bubbly.
Overall, a really tasty lager that is clean, crisp and very refreshing. Could easily drink a couple more. Excellent.

This is by far the best lager I have ever experienced. Taste, 24 carat gold appearance, smell are all beyond compare!

A- nice big frothy bone white head. Lasted a good bit. Very little/light lacing. Lots of bubbles. Clear honey gold hue. Ultra pleasing to the eye.

S- clean, malty, hoppy. All the pleasant aromas I expect and enjoy when visiting a brewery.

T- lots of malts up front, followed by nice hop bitterness.

M- crisp, medium to full body.

O- an excellent lager. Very well balanced. Loads of character all around. Would definitely have again and recommend.

Cheers!
