A very drinkable, enjoyable beer. Smells inviting, tastes fresh and has a number of different taste themes all working together. Finishes clean with no unpleasant aftertaste. It just seems right to me and I would be hard pressed to order something else if this was available.

Sometimes you just want a beer and you'd be hard pressed to find a better example of great lager than this. Smooth and creamy with just the right amount of crisp hops to finish it off. It's a shame that no big name American beer even resembles something this good.

Bought a case of 24 bottles in Wilbraham, MA.

A - Light gold tint with a frothy foamy head of two inches or so.

S - Beer.

T - It tastes like a lager through and through.

M - Crisp, and easy goin' down.

O - I think it's unfortunate that the irrational craze for ales (especially over-the-top IPAs) over the last few years has left the traditional lager woefully underappreciated. And yet the truth is that a good lager is mighty difficult to brew, much more so than an ale. Well, this is damn good lager: Refreshing and crisp yet simultaneously hearty. Great stuff - you see how the Germans drink this stuff by the liter at their beer halls.
