3.51/5 rDev +4.8%
Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a muddled, bright, maize-gold coloring, with a frothy, sparse, white head. Nose of toasted grains and subtle hops, remaining very light throughout. Flavors are toasted grains forward, with a floral hops highlight, and a tangy hops resin character at the end. Crisp and mid-bodied, with a tangy sweet and bitter aftertaste. The finish is smooth and crisp.

THe beer is at cellar temp and poured into a pint glass.
Pours a bright clear yellow hue with fizzy bleached white head of 4 cm. The foam fades gradually to a sturdy surface layer.
Aroma is mild with some grainy malt and a bit of spicy hops. NO hint of booze and no complexity, not flawed anywhere either, just not exciting to me.
First sip reveals a very light body and fizzy carbonation. Flavor is grainy malt and some residual sweetness. Maybe a little herbal hop finish. Not complex or overwhelming. A decent lager, but not one to hunt out again.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with moderate to significant amounts of active visible carbonation quickly rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint hints of golden yellow. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of cereal grain malts with some lighter aromas of bready malts. There are light notes of herbal and grassy hops.
T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of bready, biscuit, and cereal grain malts but without very much sweetness. There are light to moderate flavors of herbal, grassy, and citrus/orange zest hops. Light amounts of bitterness are present but it fades pretty quickly.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp and smooth.
O: This is very drinkable and very sessionable. A very nice lager with some more pronounced hop aromas and flavors than are often found in the styles (especially American examples). This is a great easy drinking beer for starting out on Thanksgiving and watching some football.
