3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow with a thick head. Aroma of sweet malt, lemon, strawberry, light fruits. Flavor of sweet malt and light fruits. Not too sweet though- it’s more fruity than sweet. A lot better than I expected as it has more body and flavor than your typical "premium lager."

(draft @ Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh, PA) Clear amber pour with a thick white head. Subtle malty aroma with a very light and dry hop note. Smooth and sweet flavor at the start. Lots of caramel malts mixing with a very light dryness and finishing off with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Smooth and drinkable.
