look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A- Clear pale amber body with a thick, frothy off-white head. Lots of lacing around the edges of the glass.

S- Toasted Carmel malt, bready lager yeast, not much in the way of hops.

T- Caramel malt comes through very nicely along with some grainy toasted bread flavors. Very nice standard lager flavors.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth and creamy, but well carbonated.

O- A good lager, the flavor is good and the feel is very good.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before March 2013. Pours lightly cloudy golden orange color with a very nice 2 finger fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, apple, pear, orange zest, cracker, biscuit, floral, herbal, light pepper, and earthy hops. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and decent strength. Taste of apple, pear, orange zest, caramel, cracker, biscuit, floral, herbal, light pepper, and hop earthiness. Light herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pear, apple, orange zest, caramel, cracker, biscuit, floral, herbal, light pepper, and earthy hops on the finish for a short bit. Very nice balance of flavors with solid robustness; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed at all after the finish. Overall this is a very good amber lager. Nice fairly robust flavors with good balance; and extremely smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
