Golden, copper color and very clear pour. Very hoppy aroma

Slight hint of citrus in the taste along with the hops. Excellent balance of taste and filling. Great flavor without it feeling like i just ate a can of beans. Probably my top choice for a 12 pack.

Great golden amber color with decent head. Sweet hoppy aroma that might benefit from added depth and complexity, but definitely pleasing. Citrus and hoppy notes, with a surprising depth that you might not expect from a lager. Slight bitterness that adds to the beer. Balanced mouthfeel. These two bottles are a bit more bitter than usual, but the expiration date is far into the future. Good true finish.
