A: [3.50] Beer is a nice copper color in the glass. It also forms a fat full finger of head. The head is dominated by small bubbles but there are large bubbles interspersed. The bottle lists the ABV (5.5%). I can't find any dating on the bottle.

S: [2.00] The nose is really weak. I am not getting anything at all. Maybe a mildly spiced bread. I am really sucking in to get any aroma at all.

T: [3.50] I get some caramel sweetness on the tongue. There is a very mild bitter finish.

M: [3.25] The body is more full than I imagined. It is not watery. There is some chew to it. It feels a little flat or under carbonated.

O: [3.25] This is a fair beer. I would not seek it out - but I wouldn't refuse it. The nose is non-existent. The taste has a bit of caramel. The mouthfeel is the real surprise. It is not a 5. It is just much better than I had anticipated.

Not a big fan of lagers. Looks nice but that's about it. Get a hint of toasted oats flavour.

Had this in a bottle. I really liked the lager. Was smooth, easy drinking and wish it was a hot summer day.
