On-tap at 5 Points

A: The pour is very much the same as the Alesner (not surprising). A clear golden-orange color with a somewhat short lived white head.

S: The nose is also fairly bready with some spiced/noble hop notes and a surprising touch of fruitiness. There isn't really the usual sulfur that you might find with a lager.

T: The flavor is quite nice, actually. Good bready notes along with some sweetness and fruit in the form of perhaps pears and apples. The bitterness is light, but does provide a nice balance.

M: Somewhat light in body, like you would expect for a lager. Plenty of carbonation, again, fairly typical.

D: I was actual a fan of this one. I am not a huge lager person, but this was pretty easy to drink and no bad off-flavors or skunkiness.
