12 oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Pours a clear yellowish gold with a fluffy finger and a half head

S - Light pine, metallic tinge

T - Bread. Pick up hints of grass and herbal notes.

M- Creamy, slightly on the low side of carbonation.

O - A refreshing highly drinkable lager. Probably more suited for an outside summer activity quencher than a sitting on the couch evening beer review.
