Bottle to tulip glass

A- pours a clear golden color with a small foamy white head that disappears quickly, leaving nothing behind 3.5

S- faint noble hop aroma gives notes of herbal tea, german pilsener malt gives some crockery aroma 3.5

T- any sign of hop bitterness is nearly nonexistent, classic pilsener malt flavor kicks in with a grainy, slightly harsh finish 3

M- light body with light carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish 3.25

O- this drinks more like an adduct lager than anything, not one of their best 3.25

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark amber color with a one inch foamy slightly off white head that dissipates VERY quickly. No real lacing is left along the glass so visually there is nothing at all noteworthy about this beer. The smell and taste is grainy and sweet. I think it's actually a very well-balanced beer -- perfect amount of carbonation and just the right amount of a slight sugary sweet caramel overtone to it. A little sour finish however.
