This is a great lager. Could drink these a lot. Balanced beer overall with just enough kiss of hops. Has a nice sweet malty backbone. Will always remember this as a good gateway beer.

Lager that pours a golden colour with a hint of orange accompanied with a thin lace that kept throughout the drinking session - roughly 15 minutes. Light carbonation, muted bitterness. I felt any aromas present were hard to detect but from what I gather it was sweet - perhaps more banana than citrus - and pleasant. More malt than hop. Anyway, good overall crisp tasting beer.
