A beautifullly bright clear copper colored beer with a big white head when poured vigorously. Fades vigorously too, to just a thin wispy veil.
Very low carbonation.
I can pick up hop presence but of no distinct flavor and sweet malt pulling up the rear.
Nice malt flavor, sweet tasting from Vienna and Munich malts. Barely any hops to speak of, but it isn't suppost to be a big player.
Smooth and clean, a nice lager style.
Myself, I think it could use a bit more carbo's and be a little more aggressive in the hop area.
Drink well my friends

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured a 12oz bottle into a pilsner style glass. Poured a clear amber with almost no head and no lacing. Aroma is simple, with malty notes of biscuit and a little bit of fruit. Taste is about the same. Not much depth to it. A little hint of carbonation and a thinner mouthfeel. Not bad, but unexciting when compared to its German counterparts.
