Amber color, lets plenty of light through. A nice bubbly white head. Good retention.
Grain and herbal hop aroma. Pretty light on the nose.
Crisp spicy hop bite, caramel malt sweetness, some grains. The way a lager like this should taste. Not too powerful, highly sessionable, but a full flavor. Good amount of carbonation. Very drinkable.

Just one of those beers that you can have whenever and not be unhappy. Goes well with a nice, greasy meal too.

BB FEB 2013

A: Pours an amber color with a fingers worth of bubbly head

S: Not too much going on here aside from some light malts and grains. Some floral hops come through as well

T: Nice and malty, with some caramel and then some floral notes from the hops. Rich and flavorful

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp

O: A solid pre-prohibition style lager with plenty of flavor with a full (not light or fizzy) mouthfeel. Nice and malty without overdoing the sweetness. Definitely a solid choice for lager fans
