Good rendition of a full flavor extra hoppy lager. A little "tinny". I'd buy again if I wanted that style but didn't feel like an AAL. Mouthfeel is a little bit sticky so not overly refreshing, might be better ice cold

Purchased in Newton, Kansas. Brought home to Oklahoma.

Poured from a chilled 12 oz can into a wine glass.

Very pretty clear golden liquid with a white head. Nice grainy aroma.

Flavor is nice and crisp. Nicely balanced. Starts dry and finishes sweet. Very bread-like with some hoppy herbal notes. I would describe it as a hoppier than expected lager.

Very nice mouthfeel with nice levels of prickly carbonation.

An excellent session beer.
