3.05/5 rDev -10.3%
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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a mildly hazy straw color. The head billows vibrantly at three fingers high, with a white shade. Retention isn't fantastic, but the lacing it leaves behind is fairly prevalent.
S: Rather simplistic, as expected. Pale malts help back up mild hops, seemingly both German (grassy, sulfury) and 'Merican (herbal, citrusy) in their qualities. Serviceable, no more, no less.
T: Like I said, simple. It's little more than pale malts and a kiss of hoppiness. To be fair, there hops aren't entirely one note, hitting a middle ground between grassy noble and citrusy 'Merican flavors. There isn't a ton of flavor, but it's not quite 'watery'.
M: Heavy and viscous. No wait, I meant light and crisp. It's a bit too tingly and astringent in feel, though. High carbonation is expected, making it very easy to drink.
O: This is far more conducive to simple, mindless drinking than sitting down and reviewing it - because really, there isn't much to review here. Still, quite decent for a 4% lager.

A: The beer is relatively clear pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light aromas of pale malts are present in the nose along with some hints of grassy hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of pale and biscuit-like malts along with notes of grassy malts. There is a light amount of bitterness and slight hints of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied, a little smooth and very clean on the palate with a moderate amount of visible carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and isn't a bad selection for the style. I could see this as being a lawnmower beer.
