Special thanks to my in-laws who gave me a 12 pack because I like those "fancy" beers.

Poured into a snifter the color was a golden amber, as advertised. Tons of carbonation bubbling from the bottom it couldn't seem to feed a quickly fleeting, fizzy head. Good color, bad body.

Faint hints of a sweet caramel and a malty scent. There's some roasted qualities in the scent but its not strong enough to pull it above average.

The taste is toasty, more so at the finish. More malt than caramel malt I don't detect much of a sweetness or caramel flavor. Perhaps the budget is an issue because if more toasted malt was present this may not be a bad lager. It feels a bit thin, though, and the extra carbonation makes it less smooth than I think they hoped.

I came at this open minded but find it an average delivery, but not nearly as poor as some.
