A: Nice amber coloring, pours to a finger and a half worth of head that dissipates down to just under a fingers worth of pillowy goodness that stuck around for a very long time. Looking down into the glass its like looking into a CoolWhip container. Very nice.

S: Light and clean malt flavors. Slight hint of toasted grains but its very subtle. Was hoping for a bit more on the nose.

T: Nice roasted malt flavors that has a slight sour tang to it. Light floral hop aroma with very light, barely noticeable bitterness. Crisp and clean, def. enjoyable.

M: Light carbonation works with the flavor profile. Left with a slight dryness and crisp feeling on the palette.

O: Not a bad little lager. Bit more tart then im used to being born and raised on Yeungling but it was def. enjoyable. Look forward to trying more of their brews and will have this one again in the near future.
