Golen color. Malty aroma. Taste is sweetish, but nearly balanced. Mild to moderate caramel and some earthy flavors. Caramelly, malty finish. Tasty.

Lightly sweet, grainy malt aroma, very lightly hoppy as well; makes only a slight impression due to the overall faintness. Perhaps some faint vegetal notes. Medium copper color, clear, with a slight, fine head. Mild flavor profile as well but thankfully not as much so, featuring some tangy, fruity hops and mild spicy bitterness on top of the lightly bready, cereal-like maltiness, just a hint of toast and caramel sweetness here. Smoothly carbonated mouthfeel, plenty active but with a distinct crisp lager smoothness. Not a lot to this one, it is mildly pleasant however, and made for a good choice on an 80 degree evening.
