Poured from a bottle into pint glass in March 2015.

Appearance: Medium gold, with nice thick and light colored head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a little coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Sweet, with just a little hops bitterness in the aroma. Pine aroma dominates with a little earthiness. Typical lager aroma.

Taste: An interesting mix of hops, spices, herbs, and a little sweetness in the flavor, that make for an interesting lager. There is a nice after-taste, that lasts for a while but not too long.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, with a medium body and medium carbonation.

Overall: This is an interesting lager. There is a variety of flavors.

On tap at Rattlr n Hum, NYC. Nice. All one could want from a lager. Cosmetics aside this really hit the spot. Major plus was texture & the lingering aftertaste. The dryness is just right.Why on earth does it only have a 41 rating from "the other guys"? I'm in on this one.

For the most part, it looks, smells and tastes like a high-end AAL.

Truthfully, there is less of a corny essence than in most AALs, but the corn is still annoyingly there in the background. Also, the hop character on the back-end makes it mildly more enjoyable than an AAL.

Odd unexpected malty backbone. Different, but good. Would session if priced right

Pours a light orange with a yellow hue and a small white frothy head with notes of grain malts, floral hops and a mild hint of caramel. It starts off with a grainy, malty, caramel taste, and then is infused with a nice floral hop presence towads the end. I found it to be rather tasty with a decent body and better than most Pilsners I have tasted... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews
