Pours a hazy yellowish orange. Creamy white head and little floats that settle at the bottom of the glass after a few minutes. Smells hoppy but not extremely. Smells like oranges and malted barley. Tastes very similar with a great balance. I could drink this with some BBQ. Medium body and carbonation. Give this one a try

Poured a left a one inch off white head. Smelled very very malty and tasted the same. It was almost sweet, I think that is partly due to the fact the bottle I had was over six months old. Left no lacing at all sadly. It was pretty good, and I'm sure would have been better a little fresher.

Bottle in trade with Burg. Thanks man! Pours clear golden with a half finger white head. Aroma much like a pils surprisingly (until I heard that they used German malts here, then it made sense) with some hay, light fruity hops, a bit of caramel. Not bad smelling. Flavor is OK with light hay and hops and a definite German influence here. A bit more caramel tones than a pils, though the flavor is a bit watered down like with their IPA, both of which seemed to be going on the session strength direction rather than the flavor direction. Light bodied with low to medium carbonation for the style. Not bad. Maybe a gateway beer for some to the good stuff.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thank you shan8454 for this brew in trade.

Appearance: Golden amber with a thin white head. Lots of carbonation, and mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops, Pine and citrus.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops/pine and citrus.

Overall: Good brew, glad I could try this one.
