The aroma of this beer is of bready, doughy malt and a very low fruity peach and red apple note.  There's also some lager yeast dryness that is nearly prickly from the carbonation.  The hops are spicy and relatively low.  As this beer warms the esters subtly increase.  The gold amber color captivate the eyes with its brilliantly clarity.  The viscosity is thick with many small bubbles rising to the surface.  The flavor is moderately bready with a light toast, complex but not rich.  Low spicy hops give way to a low level of bitterness.  The balance is toward the malt character, and finishes dry with a bittering aftertaste.  The body is medium built with nearly any creaminess and the high carbonation further accents the dry finish.  There's a very low astringency and slight peppery note here as well.  Overall the carbonation seems high for the style yet the dryness gives this beer its stylistically German lager character.  The malt flavors are complex although a little shy of richness, the esters noted are a tad intrusive.
