12 oz bottle into pint glass. Best by 4/7/2011

A - Dark copper in color with half a finger of off-white head.

S - Bready and sweet. Grainy with some caramel.

T - Some lightly roasted malt character, sweet caramel and some breadyness. Finish is has bitter hop followed by sweet breadyness with a load of caramel.

M - Light to medium body with nice carbonation. Good feel. Dries out slightly in the end.

O - This is one of the best lagers I've ever had. Absolutely delicious and a joy to drink. Can't go wrong with this beer.
