overall
The pretty appearance and clean, dry drinkability are what give this beer an outstanding polish that many micro lagers lack. The dryness keeps the palate going back for more, however the aftertaste never leaves you desperately wanting the front of the palate back, so even when the glass is empty, the aftertaste leaves you feeling satisfied that you have drank something worth having another.

Light lager appearance but it is tricky because the strong hops smell and taste make it almost American Pale like. It is a nice complex larger if you like the flavor of an IPA with the harsher bitters. This is my favorite fridge beer (when I can find it).
