3.5/5 rDev +2.6%
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed light golden-yellow color with a nice two finger head of billowy white foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is biggest of a mix of wheat and graininess along with a decent showing of a lemon smell. Along with these aromas are some light smells of herbal and floral hop nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a lighter biscuit and cracker malt flavor along with a little bit of grass hop. As the taste advances some lemon comes to the tongue along with hints of grapefruit. The flavors all remain quite light throughout, and with a little bit of an herbal and hay flavor that arrives on the tongue at the ever end, a rather light and crisp but somewhat lightly funked flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light with a carbonation level that is slightly above average. While the light body was nice for creating a crisp taste, a little thicker body may have been better for the hop and funk. Even so, overall it was pretty decent, and for the abv, I think they did it right…
Overall – A crisp and refreshing beer that is quite sessionable at only 4 % abv. While the flavors are light they are overall rather nice with the brew being a good one for those summer picnics or maybe while watching a little baseball.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a standard American pint glass.
A-poured a decent white cream 1 inch soapy head; retention okay; carbonation present in the glass; somewhat filtered and clear; a little sticky lacing left behind; pale yellow straw in color
S-Not much, perhaps some light wafers, soda crackers, and malt. A little toasted grain.
T-toasted grains, malts, soda crackers, and buttered biscuits; slight lemon/citrus; dry aftertaste; slight sweet tingle at first, but then turns flat and has a soda water taste.
M-Crisp at one point, yet it felt like a light soda water. Easy drinking, light, and fizzy. The soda water taste ended up dominating the other flavors.
Overall, just 'meh'. It's not bad, it just isn't anything special. It is definitely better than certain adjunct lagers, and it would suffice at a backyard summer bbq; could easily quaff a few, no problem.

Tap at prezo in Milford.
Decent creamy frothy 1 finger head fades fairly slowly, slight hazy watery tan pilsner colored.
Nose very light, straw malts, light crisp lager note, hint pilsner malt, touch fruity lager yeast, hint grassy hops.
Taste is a bit better, more toasty pilsner malts, little straw and grain, very light malt feel, with little fruity lager note and crispness. Plenty of hops, grassy noble hops, little spicy almost American hop note, mild to fair bitterness. Finish is dry, crisp, all lingering grassy hops and fair bitterness. The noble-esque grassy leafy hops linger for quite a while.
Mouth is light bod, touch fluffy malt feel, nice carb, bit of a soft and crisp lager.
Overall ok but nothing special, malts are a but too light even for a light lager, I do like the hop profile it's quite nice and saves the beer, as well as the nice crisp soft lager notes. Nose is very light though.

Appearance- light golden color, clear with a white head.
Smell- Hops, but only a little. Maybe some lemon. Not a great beer for sniffing.
Taste- Light and clean, slightly bitter finish.
Overall- Drinkable, but not overly exciting. Probably best as a lawnmower beer.

Best Before 06/24/14
A: Pours a clear straw yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a thin cap
S: Some fruitiness and graininess stand out. Nothing too complex
T: Follows the nose. Fruit and grain up front with some breadiness following through into the finish
M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation
O: A nice, easy drinking lager. Nothing complex or wowing, but it does make for a good session brew at 4%. If they can this, it would make for a nice camping beer

Clear yellow with a medium sized white colored head.
Smells of toasted grain and mild malt. Mild noble hop aroma mostly it is grassy.
Starts out sweet and grassy with a mild bitterness and a faint sourness. Mineral water flavors. It is a little thin.
Mouthfeel is thin.
Overall this is OK but nothing special.
