A- Light amber body with a bone white head. Good lacing.

S- Caramel malt comes through the most with a light hop presence.

T- Similar to how it smells, caramel malt character throughout with some hop presence to balance it out.

M- Crisp, clean, not overly carbonated.

O- Classic lager, well balanced, good beer for anytime.
