3.48/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Served on-tap in a 5 oz. sampler glass.

A: A clear, dark copper color. Thin head, strong and thick lacing.

S: Floral notes.

T: Sweet malt, somewhat bitter finish. Well-balanced.

M: Smooth, well-carbonated.

D: Not a huge fan of it overall. I suppose it fits the style, but I wasn't impressed with any particular aspect. I probably wouldn't reach for another if I had other options.

Serving type: on-tap

3.29/5  rDev -6.5%
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.
