12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Bright pale yellow hue, perfect lacing on top. Clean grainy nose, dried grass and faint herbal hop as well. Light bodied, very crisp with a clean palate. More than enough hop bitterness to balance this brew out. Graininess pushes forward in the drying aftertaste.

Love this retro lagers ... tall boy cans next time please.

Pours a pale, clear golden,with substantial white head and lovely, big spoke-like lace. Very nice.

Nose is plenty of malty grains -- corn, barley. Average lager aroma.

Taste is light, but with plenty of flavor. I get mostly toasty grains, but accented by a plentiful dose of lemony hops. A superb session pils with good character and a well-balanced flavor. Superb and well-done!

A-Clear as day, light yellow, can read a book through it. No carbonation, two finger head that doesn't last.

S-Bland some straw.wheat, tad bit of grass.

T-Very malty, lots of straw and wheat, tad bit of grass, not bitterness, balance is slightly off.

M-Lighter, but not as light and watery as I was expecting.

O-Not sure why I bought this beer, it is avoidable.

poured 12 oz. bottle into snifter.

A - A light lemon straw color that is quite clear and has a 2 finger white head. Nice retention and decent lacing.

S - Aromas of sweet corn, light barley malt, mild hops, lemon zest and some cane sugar.

T- Notes of mild hops, sweet corn, barley malt, lemon zest and can sugar.

M - Well carbonated with a very light and crisp mouthfeel, although there is a little butteriness to it.

O - For an AAL this is decent. I'd drink it at a pig roast.
