Golden beer with a creamy foam leaving moderate lace. Light grain and malt nose. Crisp flavor, faintly citric and lightly butter with a mild grain and malt backbone. Medium body nice carbonation and substantive mouthfeel. Finish is clean. Easy to drink.

I enjoyed this 22oz bottle chilled in a mug.

The color is golden with light chill haze and thin white head with fine bead after settling with visible carbonation, retention is great. The smell is slightly sweet with gentle floral hops with a grain aroma augmented by light yeast ester. The feel is full, creamy body with medium high carbonation with moderately sweet texture and low bitterness with semi-dry finish.

The taste is veery nice with creamy malt and light hop with floral sweet quality and mild yeast adding a creamy taste with mild hop bitterness to balance the malt sweetness which is toasty and light with a low alcohol flavor if any in the taste mostly herbal hops in the finish. Overall excellent lager in the general sense a bit generic however it is slightly more hop flavored than your average 'Harp' or whatever is sold as Irish Lager. Very drinkable yet still has a goodly amount of flavor for a 4.6% lager and it fits the style well.

Poured from a 22oz. Look, very thick light head with earthy golden color beer. Smell, rough and loud at first but softer after that. Taste, very good floral tasting. Feel, thin and lingering. Overall, would love it to feel and taste thicker but I liked it.

I'm no expert but as someone who is looking to be well versed in the world of alcohol this has been a great introductory beer.
