Birthdate: January, 2013
Hops: Nugget, Hallertauer, Perle, Fuggle

Aroma: Clearly a lager with some crisp lager-like aromas. The hops contribute noble grassy, spicy, and herbal, but there is also fruit, from the specialty malts.

Flavor: Lightly sweet, with a smooth, clean, and mellow bitterness. Well-balanced.
Visual: Clear with slight hop haze. Hay in the sunshine with thin head and lacing.
