look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Transparent gold with a generous frothy head.

S: Faint smell of grain and malt.

T: Similar to a german Helles - grainy with a mild grassy hop presence. Tastes very fresh - there's nothing skunky about this at all.

M: Medium carbonation - crisp and refreshing.

I'm generally a bit intolerant of this style, but this is actually fairly drinkable - it's definitely one of the better blond lagers I've experienced, though I'd choose a german pilsner over this any day.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours a clear, pale yellow, nice effervescence; pristine 2 inch, white head. Light hops & barley smell with some flowery notes. Very smooth, slightly sweet taste, no bitterness; the hops, barley, & malt are very well balanced. Mouth feel - medium carbonation, light bodied. Overall - a pleasant surprise and a nice break from the heavier beers I've been leaning toward lately. I almost passed this one up; glad I didn't.
