look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

a clear deep amber with an off white head that quickly disappears. looks like an ale - not a lager.. very misleading had i not read the bottle label :p

smells of orange and honey, cloves and cinnamon

taste is a bit bitter yet crisp - hint of burnt grains, bread, burnt caramel/toffee

light body, high carbonation, slightly creamy

not really my cup of tea for beers but if it's the only other lager on tap here in nj (this does happen often where this is y only craft choice aside from blue moon*) then i'll drink the fuck out of it without a peep.

*fuck blue moon, seriously. this shit is not craft beer. it's mass produced wheat beer. and for that matter, wheat beer is fucking boring, make this stuff taste better if you're going to try and take over the fucking market with it you assholes. thanks. have a nice day.

A - golden hue with quick rising bubbles, looks delicious! This head disappears quickly leaving little lace but it's there
S - not much aroma, have to pull it in your nose - light hoppy smell
T - delicious - dry aftertase, very satisfying, I like this brew!
M - a bit thin but it has potential for a session beer.
O - I would buy this again. I like the adherence to the Reinheitsgbot, this is a pure lager in traditional style. I can imagine my grandfather enjoying this after a long day at work. Satisfying and refreshing.
