Notes

Moderate carbonation, no lacing, thin white head. Overall taste is generic and restrained, good session beer on a hot summer day. Quite drinkable.

The taste of this beer is a bit grainy and sweet initially, with the sweetness changing to being slightly more malty after a second or so. The mouthfeel is very light. Finish is crisp, clean, and with virtually no aftertaste.

This yeast although powdery, produces one the clearest lager recipes I know after a lagering period.
