Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Left about a one finger head, very "crispy" more like a soft drink head. Beer was golden and very clear with little streams of bubbles.

Nose was standard lager with some hops and a bit of honey sweetness. Flavor was also typical lager. Slightly metallic on the finish, but the mouthfeel was good for style. Very drinkable.

Would be refreshing on a hot summer day, but not complex enough for my tastes.

Bought from Central Market in a Family Reunion sampler.
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
(Review from notes)

A - Gold, very carbonated, but no head.

S - Some hops and honey.

T - Balanced. Maybe a hint of hops with some honey sweetness.

M - Light, easy to drink. Very bubbly, which is different.

Summary - I was skeptical about this brew, but it turned out to be just fine. Would be good with something spicy - Mexican or Chinese maybe. Definitely a decent non-BMC brew.
