Acquired via trade from cpolking, so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light copper color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, lager yeast, some honey, some fruit and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out a little sweet with flavors of fruit and honey followed by some breadiness from the lager yeast and a thin malt character. The hops presence is mild but brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

D: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while, but there are better beers in the style.
