Pours clear as is expected from a lager. Half-inch of white, frothy foam covers the top. Retention is good, especially for the amount. Lacing follows the drink up and down with each taste.
Aroma is caramel and mostly toasted malt. A spice hop is there to balance. Not much on the sniffer.
Taste is about as straight forward as the aroma: sweet up front with toasted malt that lasts and lingers. A slight clean, spice hop flavor comes through on the finish too.
Medium body with a crisp finishing carbonation.
A solid beer that does nothing to really invigorate the consumer to believe they really went out their way to make something special. It is an average beer that is nice but nothing more. Could sit back with a couple of these but probably wouldn't as I would want something a little more fulfilling. Enjoy!
