LilBeerDoctor (3903) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2013
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." 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)
