.5 /l bottle.
Clear golden body with a decent white head.
A mild and mildly bitter brew but with plenty of flavor for style. Hop dominated with a floral-herbal Euro hop profile.

Pours a crystal clear, light amber with a full white head. The aroma is of bready malts with a touch of spicy hops behind it. Light bodied, with a minimal mouthfeel. There's a touch of sweet malt, which fades out to a clean noble hop note. Very simple and clean, a well built lager.

Pours straw yellow with a chunky 4 finger white head that leaves thick, sticky lacing.

Smell of sweet, nutty malts. A little fruity.

Taste is a little flat. This beer's probably past it's prime. Citric and just faintly bitter with light sweet malts.

Moderate in feel with light to moderate carbonation. Drying.

Pretty good, even though there's not much hop presence.

When I first tasted this, I thought "Wow, this is what a lager is supposed to taste like like and I never knew it!" So clean and refreshing. A near perfect golden lager.

L: brilliant straw gold permeated by streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a 1.5" ivory cap with good retention.

S: Rich hop aromas, some floral and spice, earthy biscuit and light cracker smells rise from the glass.

T: crisp, starting lightly sweet with a faint hint of apple, light spicy floral, some bread dough and cracker malt flavors finishing bitter with a trace of tart on the finish

F: smooth, medium light bodied with medium high carbonation

O: an excellent, easy to drink International Pale Lager with some flavor

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice light colored clear yellow with streams of carbonation rising at a decent pace to fill a one and a half finger white foamy head. The head dissipated within less than about forty seconds and graced the glass with a nice speckled lacing. The smell had some subtle biscuit to breadiness rolling under my nose and allowing a nice sweet honey coated hoppiness. The taste had a nice sweet fruity character over top of some light breadiness. There was a quick dry and crisp finish. On the palate, this beer was about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation finishes fairly smooth. Overall, in my opinion, this was a good beer to have again.
