Pours a very slightly cloudy amber with a poorly retained off white head that left some blotches of lacing. Smell is dominated by malts with a mild hop presence. Taste is also dominated by malts, starts off slightly sweet then turns to a more bread like taste and finishes with a mild grassy bitterness. Medium bodied and carbonation, smooth mouth feel. A little too malty, needs better balance with hops.

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.
