3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy amber with a thin head that recedes into a thin cap. Beautiful lager aroma of toasty biscuit, roasty toffee, clean german yeast, and just a touch of grassy hops. The flavor is pretty big and yeasty with lots of biscuity bready notes, accompanied by very subtle hoppy bitterness of herbal grassy notes. I love the full body and the bready toasty yeasty maltiness. But at the end of the day it still has that lager-centric grain twang that makes me wish there were fruity tones.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at CK - medium copper with a light haze - frothy, well-sustained head - nose of toasty grains, moderately floral and fruity hops - light bready notes, a hint of honeyish sweetness - medium bodied, smooth texture - lightly sweet - a nice bready character, toastiness - a touch of caramel - tail end has a nice mix of floral, lightly grassy, and mildly fruity hop character - lingering bready and lightly bitter finish - a touch of buttery flavor in the finish reduces the experience a notch, but still very tasty - another quality lager from CK.
