Although I like the earthly, peppery hops in this beverage, the brew is a too malty, sip and aftertaste, for me. There is a bit of a copper/metaly finish which also turned me off. Not a bad drink, but not something I'd go to regularly. May be a better experience with food.

I had this beer at 2 different places during a recent visit to NYC. One time it was in bottles and another time on tap. Both tasted differently. The tap version was way too malty for my liking. But the bottle version was A-OK and a rather decent tasting lager.

L: Poured into a pilsner glass producing a 3” pillowy, lacy white foam collar over an amber column with a slight haze. S: Light spicy malts with a light earthy spicy hop aroma. T: This is a malt driven beer with fresh bread flavors and a moderate bitter hop accent on the finish. F: Clean, crisp, creamy smooth, medium body and medium carbonation. O: An excellent lager that has me craving Middle European deli food.
