Pours a light yellowish straw color. The body is light, the flavor is crisp and this offering is quite sessionable. However, this lager is only one step above the average AAL.

Upon pouring correctly, it leaves a one finger white fluffy head. The head dissipated within 30 seconds. It laces nicely and the lace remains. The body is a bronze orange color. The bubbles are everywhere with constant streams going up to the top.

The aroma is relatively strong but is present enough to be pleasant. The smell is of maybe noble hops, with malt and maybe grain. It has some water to it but not so much as the adjuncts do. The smell is real pleasant and invites the taste.

The taste is definitely of hops with some malts coming in as an aftertaste. The taste is kind of bitter but quite crisp. It is pleasing to the palate. An enjoyable beer to taste.

The mouthfeel is just as much carbonation as necessary. Its dry enough to be enjoyable and makes you want to take another drink.
