22 oz. bottle. It pours a nice clear light gold with a creamy white head and lots of streaming bubbles. The aroma is strong with Hallertauer floral and lemon zest, a little minty and earthy. The flavor is full bodied and extremely hop forward. Great blend of hops with mostly floral bitterness combined with some earthy and herbal notes backed by very minor citrus peel. Very creamy mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this lager. Well done!

This excellent lager is cloudy and the color is light. The hops are distinct. The only complaint is that the malt flavor is a little understated. Thus, there is a slight imbalance between malt and hops. However, it is an excellent beer.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste biscuit, sweet, earthy. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Hazy deep golden color, fluffy white head with nice retention and lacing. Nice aroma of light spice, flowers. Taste is earthy, lightly spiced, subtle pine and citrus. Very tasty.

This is a good german / Belgian style brew. I had it aged a year an a half. Not much hop taste. Good malt balance.
