Sometimes it's difficult to rate a beer against others within the style and not rate the style overall. This is one of those cases for me. Lagers aren't my favorite and, therefore, if I rate this beer in relation to all other styles, it would get a low score. When compared to other American lagers, though, it's a good beer. Pours with a fluffy white head typical of the style. Light, sweet aroma with the hops faint but noticeable if you're looking for them. Clean, light malty taste that's very drinkable. Well carbonated with a clean finish.

On tap at Das Biergarten. Clear golden. Smells of some grain. That's about it. Tastes of a sharp grain flavor. Dries out with some grassy hop flavor. Light body. Not bad but not very flavorful.

I bought a six pack of this at whole foods. It's a good lager, refreshing and easy to drink. My only complaints are the price point and the slight balance of the flavor toward excessive bitterness on the finish.
