This golden lager is a crisp and classic brew, but thicker in mouthfeel than most lager-type beers. It’s got some real weight to it, which makes it pair well with food that has a little spice in it. Czech and German in ancestry, I found it fit perfectly with a seasoned pork chop and asparagus, a dinner that pairing wine with would have proven difficult. Light and golden yellow, it’s on the fruity/grainy side, only very lightly bitter, and overall well-balanced.
