On tap poured into a goblet. Straw color but with no head after the pour. Crisp aroma as expected but there is a fruity aroma in there I wasn't expecting. As I drink, I can taste that off-aroma in the beer as well . It doesn't taste as crisp as a German pilsner should. It's just an average pilsner at best.

HF makes some of the best ales I've ever had, but this is my first lager from them and it is definitely a let-down. It feels like they need to refine their lagering to prevent the occurance of these off-flavors and aromas that should not be in a beer like this.
