I had this on tap on Monday at Al's of Hampden, served chilled.

The color is deep golden bordering on light amber with light chill haze and small white cream with tight bead and visible carbonation. The smell is slightly mineral and mild grainy nose with light floral ester and subtle lemon zest. The feel is semi-zingy with light astringency and mild malt sweetness and light bitterness overall with moderate carbonation and semi-dry finish.

The flavor is good with subtle light grassy hops and mild sweetness with semi-bitter flavor and light yeastiness with a mild tanginess in the finish w/ gentle herbal taste. Overall not a bad lager and I enjoyed that the hoppiness was not overdone, very drinkable.
