3.31/5 rDev -5.2%
12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Pours a golden color with an eighth of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that collected in the center of the top of the beer.
Aroma: Not much in the aroma department at all. I got faint notes of malt, some honey, straw and clover.
Taste: Very reminiscent of a German-style lager. Malty, yet hoppy. Sweet, yet slightly bitter. Good floral flavors of clover, yeast, crystalized sugar, honey suckle.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light, but with some good and with an ABV of 5.4%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.
Overall: This is a very, very solid lager. Great session beer, full of flavor, nicely balanced and extremely drinkable. I’ll certainly get this beer again.

12 ounce bottle with purchase before date notched on label info.
Pours quite clear, lighter amber, minor head, with larger bubble rising and producing no lace...bleeh look to this one.
Faint malt on the nose
Better tasting then it looks or smells. Moderate malty sweetness with caramel prominent.
Easy drinking sessioner.
A worthy add in to my chicken marinade this morning.
This is a decently well rounded and smooth crowd pleasing type of brew.

Fairly non-descript pour. Looks like a stardard issue lager with some reddish hues to the regular golden color. Very clear, no haze. Head is bright white, a finger thick and has moderate retention.
It's got a yeasty, bready smell with just a splash of citrus. Not much of a hop nose.
Very flavorful for a lager. Very malty, though with so many different malts it's hard to distinguish each one. Earthy, Noble hops in a lasting finish.
It's smooth and slightly sweet. In mid-sip the hops take over and lay down a savory feel. Fairly crisp, dryish finish.
Not bad, easy to drink, lowish alcohol, mostly a non-aggressive sessiony kind of beer that would go with any occasion.

A: The beer is crystal clear light amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that quickly died down, leaving delicate lacing on the surface and a very thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sweet toasted malts are present in the nose; these become a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste follows the smell and has slight hints of initial sweetness with flavors of toasted malts and is followed by hints of earthy yeast towards the finish. No bitterness is perceptible, although there's just enough underlying hops to keep the malty sweetness from becoming cloying.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is nice and malty and tastes like a true representation of the style.
