Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- 2-finger white shaving cream head
- hangs around for quite a while and serious lacing
- pale golden, very clean looking beer

The Aroma:
- has a very soft, light powdery aroma

The Taste:
- soft, smooth mouthfeel; a bit creamy
- moderate carbonation; bit of citrus hops come through

The Verdict: A decent, smoothed out lager that, while I may not actively search it out, I would certainly not turn it away. Easy drinking with an interesting enough profile to make it enjoyable.
