This rich yet smooth lager pours a bright copper color with a frothy off-white head that shows good retention. Malty aromas of roasted grain, soft caramel and a hint of toffee are upfront on the nose, but are complemented by a spicy hop aroma in the background. The mouth is creamy and flavorful, lifted by medium carbonation and a citrusy dry-hop character that lingers on the finish. This is a well-balanced and enjoyable brew.
