Bottle from Andover Liquors
Pour a crystal clear golden straw color with a decent sized tightly bubbled white head that dissipates quickly to a faint cap on top. Aromas of sweet grainy honey like pilsner malt and a faint floral hop. I'm a bit surprised that the aroma is so damn inviting. The flavor is lightly sweet and honey like with some faint earthy spicy hop to balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and slick sugary water mouthfeel. Very nice example of a pale lager, I could see some of these on a warm summer day.

12oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A: Dull golden straw color. No real head to speak of, it doesn't stick around. Tiny dots of lacing.

S: Dusty sort of grainy scent. Vague light fruits. Pithy, lemony hops. Hay and grass.

T: Earthy, dusty grain. Odd pervasive sweetness. Grape leaf and vague fruitiness. Grass and hay. Clean. Drying grainy finish.

M: Light bodied. Some malty firmness. Moderate carbonation.

O: I can see how this would be refreshing in its native climate, but then again I'd probably chug any beer you put in front of me while the hot African sun was beating down me. A pretty average "Euro" feeling lager in every respect.
