2.5/5 rDev -32.8%
11.2 oz bottle 04/15 poured in a pint glass. Clear yellow, like most lagers. Huge foam head buildup; took a while to go away. Smells bready and of malt. Tastes of chemicals and grain. Something off-putting about it. I got a lingering, bitter aftertaste. I'm going to have to revisit. It may be due to not having had a lager in quite some time.

Pours a medium golden color with a slight white head Some lacing left along the glass as you finish. Good amount of carbonation. Smell is sweet, malty, and fresh. Taste is also malty but with a subtle hint of grapes. Medium bodied -- good session beer and a good alternative for someone that feels like getting a lager with a little kick to it but nothing crazy. Paired this with sausage and peppers on the bbq on a hot summer day and it was very enjoyable.

4.3/5 rDev +15.6%
Sampling right now on 8/2/14. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass "Texas" style boot.
Pours a pretty golden in color with a good half of a finger foamy white head that settles down to just along the sides of the glass. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is of bready malts for the most part. The taste has more going on even with a sweet bread taste followed by a slight dry finish. Clean and crisp and goes down easy. No bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. Lighter to medium bodied. Overall a great brew!

3.48/5 rDev -6.5%
Appearance: Amazing clarity and a golden color. Fluffy three-finger white head with decent retention. A few tiny bubbles cascade upwards from the base of the glass.
Aroma: Great bready malt. Some dryness, very clean.
Taste: Not as grainy as the aroma led me to believe. Some bitterness from the hops as well as some interesting yeast esters. Somewhat dry with a smooth finish. Aftertaste is a tad cloying due to dryness bready malt flavor that lingers on the palate. I expected a little more hop flavor, there is really just a hint of bitterness. A flash of sweetness comes across during the initial taste.
Mouthfeel: Between thin and medium in body with smooth carbonation and easy drinkability.
Final Thoughts: Not quite as great as I was hoping given the freshness and dark bottle. A good example of the style and worth a try if you are a fan of the style. Nothing special but far and above adjunct swill on the market. Would I drink it again? On a hot day.
