Maybe I just can’t appreciate a lager properly but I was disappointed. As far as lagers go I enjoyed this more than most but I still felt that there was a lack of complexity I could just not get over. It was very crisp and clean and did avoid some of things that most lagers don’t as far as flavor goes. Whan I lived in MN and had yet to be exposed to craft brews I would have raved about this but what can I say I’ve been spoiled since.

This is a true handcrafted beer, that every person who does not drink dark beer....should drink.
I really enjoyed this.
