12oz bottle served in a pilsner glass.

L - clear golden yellow color with a good sized white head that left a sheet of lacing behind.

S - lots of malty sweetness with a hint of hops.

T - well balanced taste, it tastes somewhat similar to a German lager and I like it.

F - medium bodied with a crisp feel.

D - goes down easy but it's up there on the abv so enjoy this beer in moderation.

I poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a SA perfect pint glass. The pour is straw yellow with a medium white head, nice lacing. The aroma is sweet grass. The beer is light and easy drinking, clean finish. The body is light, well carbonated. A very well crafted lager, surprised that it is 7%.

Poured from a bottle into a regular pint glass.

Appearance: Golden straw color with half a finger of head. Almost no carbonation with little foam coating the glass.

Smell: Strawlike with hints of honey, citrus, and malt. Most likely the beers low point.

Taste: Taste is very smooth and very sweet. Mostly honey, citrus, and a little malt flavor. Taste some fruitiness. Refreshing. Not overwhelming, but somewhat weak.

Mouthfeel: The beer's strongest point. It is extremely drinkable and is a beer that fits the role of a summer beer. Recommend strongly with fish.

Overall: This beer is nothing outstanding but is a worthy one to try, especially in the summer on the hot day. Pairs extremely well with fried fish.

Brenda picked me up a couple of these at the COOP tonight... Thanks Babe. Poured into my small Grolsch goblet.

1 finger white head.... only okay retention atop a polished golden brew.

The aroma screams big pale malts... the hops seem a bit restrained with some earthy/herbal qualities.. but really, the clean malts dominate.

Clean pale malt is out front.. maybe some minor sulfur.. the hop bitterness is very balanced with again some herbal notes showing later on the palate.. a tiny bit of EtOH shows.. but you should expect it on a lager with this pronounced ABV.

Mouthfeel and carbonation are nice.... maybe a bit thick..

"Euro Pale Lager" as a category for this brew is only going to drive the reviews down... No doubt, I would put this in the Maibock realm... Very nice... If you don't like this one, then you don't like well made lagers.
