Pours a faintly dark yellow with a white head. Retention isn't so great, just a film of foam left behind but no lacing at all.
Smell is nice blend of malt, herbal hops, crackers and pepper. Good balance.
Taste is malt, hops, saltine & a hint of pepper. Balance is great.
Slightly less than medium bodied (but more so than most lagers) and less fizzy, really just standard carbonation. Drying finish. For a lager, it's pretty damn good.

A creamy lager that is very enjoyable. More flavorful than most lagers on the market, but at the end of the day it is still just a lager.

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.

Beautiful clear golden straw color with a thick white head and sparse bubbles rising slowly to the surface. Leaves thick rings of lacing on the glass.

A malt-forward aroma, with no hops to speak of, but a little white pepper in the background.

Clean-tasting, again with the sweet malt flavor most pronounced, while still fairly crisp, and a little spiciness on the back end.

Great beer for a spring day.
