A: The beer is slightly hazy pale light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down a bit but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of smoke and biscuit malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of biscuity malts along with bits fo smoke.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has some nice hints of smoky aromas and flavors.

16 oz can. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head. Aroma is of bready malt and grassy hops. Body is medium and crisp. Bready malt and grassy hops nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is medium and dry. Very good brew.

Picked up a can at Astoria Bier & Cheese. This is my favorite kind of lager, subtle and weird. The foudre character is mild, with a slight earthiness that reminds me of kellerbier. The smoke is restrained and well-balanced against the light hops and spice. Hell of a beer.
