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.

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

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.
