A new one I got to try today and could not have been any happier with the results. Served cold and right from the source, and poured into a pint glass this one was consumed on

The pour was spot on. Light golden in color, crystal clear, amazingly so with streams of bubbles just ripping up through the surface of the glass. Rich looking white head forms on top but faded quickly as the timing progressed leaving little in the way of lacing. Light bready aroma, cloves maybe? Hints of banana and light fruity esters playing around but mostly just a clean, crisp lager smell here. But when you take the first sip is when it really all starts, so clean and fresh. As crisp and refreshing as anything I have ever had to be honest. Light grassy notes, hints of bready undertones and a wonderful, light, easy flavor that just rolls across the tongue. Amazingly light body and feel, this one went down like water. I really could not get enough of it!

Overall of the best session lagers I have ever had. If you get a chance get out and try this one, amazing.
