3.25/5 rDev -14.9%
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.

4.2/5 rDev +9.9%
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.

This beer is crystal clear, pale amber with a foamy white head.
The smell is grains, earth, wet grass, cat piss.
The taste is light, sweet grains, finishing slightly bitter.
The mouthfeel is very light with medium carbonation. The finish is very clean and crisp.
This is a very light flavored lager, more so than I like but it's very easy drinking.
