12 oz bottle, enjoy by 10/5/14. Pours clear pale yellow with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is vegetal malts and floral noble hops.

The flavor is sweet vegetal malts with a spicy noble hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, not a great lager.
