3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy golden with a nice, lager-appropriate head, with a quite strong hoppy aroma. Taste is somewhat fuller than I would expect of a lager beer, very nice body, some sweet taste, which quickly switches to a hoppy bitter and evolves in to a nice, subtle, slightly dry finish. This is one hell of a lager!
