Drinks large for a lager. I find it to be a great campfire beer, whatever that means. I generally don't like lagers at all, but this one is pretty good. Worth a taste, and I'm surprisingly not too disappointed that it was in the mixer pack.

It's a pretty good lager. Reminds me of a light bodied schwarzbier. Call me crazy, but I get hints of peanut butter.

Edit. Meh, nothing special.

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a pilsner glass

Pours a light copper, with a 1/4 inch fluffy white head, lots of visible champagne like carbonation. A slight funk to the front of the nose, followed by a nice toasted malt note, a slight lemon with a faint bittering hop on the finish. Toasted malt, slight carbonation middle of the mouth, metallic lemon flavor mid sip, clean soapy finish. Light on the mouthfeel, fizzy, funky, quenching. Overall; I dunno, it's a lager! Boring, light, it's not bad, it's not good, it does however pair amazingly well with chicken wings, cheers!

12oz bottle at fridge temp. no bottled on date.

a copper golden color with just a slight haze. a small white head that settles to some thin patchy foam that stays awhile. decent webby lace. lots of carbonation bubbles rushing to the top.

mineraly lager yeast meets toasted grain with very light hints of caramel and honey.

light, easy flavors. mineral like lager yeast, toasted grains with hints of butter and caramel. finishes clean with just a light hit of citrus. just barely enough bitterness to balance out the sweetness.

light body, slightly watery. lots of carbonation.

for what it is, its not terrible. its done pretty well for the style actually. an easy drinking session beer that any beer drinker could get behind, but it leaves the beer geek wanting more... much more.
