A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Appearance: light gold, very clear, thick white head, head has minimal retainage Aroma: fruity, clean, pleasant Taste: malty, butter, slightest bit of hops at the end, almost unnoticeable under the malt Palate: medium body, moderate c02, have to really concentrate to catch an aftertaste Overall: smells good, pleasantly surprised, but I had low expectations, highly drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Clear pale gold with a fair white head. Sweet malt aroma. Slightly yeasty flavor. Balanced to a degree of blandness. Hops are entirely an afterthought. Well made but uninteresting.

Dorqui (2094) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 1, 2013
Bottled 0,50L. Elegant golden fraught color, medium bubbly presence, good head of long resistance. Fresh malty nose, bread, grains, cellar. Very pleasant body, little crisp with a good bitterness content, pleasant bread and malty notes. Discreet resistant final, an unusual lager with something extra.

Onslow (1135) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bottle. Clear pale yellow brew with fizzy white head. NOt much aroma but what there is light malt, a little grass. Taste is a little sweet, a little bread, some drying in the finish which I suppose is hops. On the up side no off flavors or vegetal tastes or odors. Think palate. Comparable to a better mainstream lager.

Bottle. As far as PLs go this is one of the best. Not my favorite style but a good beer all the same.

barn0216 (396) - California, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Crisp yellow color with great clarity, one finger pour that dissipates quickly. Fairly fragrant aroma for a light lager, grain and flowers. Nice flavor of grain, hop bitterness is evident, slightly metallic. Dry. Rather good for a light lager.
