Aroma - Grapefruit, sweet esters, malt, slight caramel. A slight hoppiness with a sweet grass.

Appearance - Rich caramel with a beige head that starts foamy and fades slowly.

Flavour - light mouthfeel with a surprising hop finish. Sweet, malty, hints of dark fruits with a slight booziness.

08/02/13 At Home from bottle. Very drinkable. Disappeared much too quickly. Hoppier than I expected from the 'lager' label, but well balanced. Deceptively so for the ABV. Can't wait for the Gold Anniv.

Poured a clear, copper body with massive head and lace retention. Aroma is a little bit of citric hops but more of a dark fruit (figs and toffee) smell. Taste follows same pattern as I get those herbal, dry hops and there is some toffee and/or caramel sweetness, little bit dark fruit taste notes, medium bodied and easy drinker although fuller thanks to some bread aspects. Beer finishes dry with a touch of booze in the finish. Hard to wrap my head around this one but I know I liked it.

If you like the lager, definitely seek this out. Balanced sweet malt and bitter hop is amazing in this brew.
