What the brewers say

“Traditional German-style lager. Clean and drinkable with a crisp, slightly toasty malt finish.”

What our panel thought

“Light lemon aroma transitioning to grainy sweetness—clean pilsner malt and Noble-hop bouquet. Malt is light, soft, doughy, allowing floral, lightly soapy, citrus-hop character to shine. Bright and clean. A bit sweet on the finish. Lingering bitterness helps dry things out. Pleasant.”

What our editors thought

“Faint lily and rose on the nose; light crackery malt. The sip is softly accessible, with round bitterness and extremely light body that sacrifices some malt. Almost disappears in the glass.”
