I thought I hated this stuff, but then I've been slowly appreciating lagers more.

It pours in a brown color that's relatively clear.

It has a light crystal malt flavor. There is a slight bit of caramel and then a little hops, but then the finish is very quick.

This still is really refreshing off of tap. The carbonation really sells this beer with this wonderful tingle and mouthfeel.

It's an enjoyable beer. Not my favorite lager, but a good go to in NYC.

It is a good looking beer. A nice amber color.

It has a pleasant floral hop aroma.

This beer is very well balanced. Malty, with a nice hop bite.

Smooth and easy drinking.

Just a great all around beer. What a lager should be.

This beer would be a perfect to have in the summer.

a- orange/ amber body with a thick off-white bubbly head, leaving nice lacing around the glass.

s- rather weak, a little hop lingering, heavier malt, bitter-sweet scent.

t- slight hop bitter up front, then a bread malt following, you can tell this is a lager, nice and refreshing with a dry finish.

m- thin body to be expected with a lager, but leaves mouth wanting more.

o- overall a great session beer, nice balanced lager, very fresh, and leaves you wanting more.
