Pours a richly dark straw hue, a bit hazy. Minimal foam (although I poured softer than usual, so that may have been my fault). Aroma a bit grassy, but couldn't pick up too much else due to the improper pour. Taste of cereal grains, biscuity. Nothing complex or layered to my palate. Bit of a hollow mouthfeel, crisp with a dry finish.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright straw golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A crisp and bready malt forward aroma with good hints of biscuit and earthy hops. Upfront pale malts with hints of straw, grains, biscuit, crackers, toast, and wheat. Earthy Euro Noble hops along with some hints of grass. Fruit hints of green apple and lemon. A nicely bready and tart aroma.

Taste: Like the smell hints at, a crisp, bready, and toasty malt forward taste with good notes of biscuit and earthy hops. Pale malt with upfront notes of biscuit, straw, grains, toast, wheat, and cracker. Earthy and herbal hop presence with notes of Euro Noble hops and a little grass. Fruit taste of tart green apple, lemon, and orange. A solid Euro style lager taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, clean, and very smooth. Fairly drying.

Overall: A pretty solid take on the Euro pale lager style. Nice biscuit malt taste with some good fruit notes.
