This beer is very light, in color, aroma, and even taste. Its a blanched straw color with the slightest amount of head. There's very little detectable aroma, other than the slight hint of malt you'd expect from a light lager. The taste is somewhat surprising though. Its a very delicate but interesting beer in this regard. For such a clean taste, it really has many subtle flavors that really compliment each other, and make the beer quite enjoyable. It would be an excellent yard work beer. Quite a surprise.

Served on tap in a pilsner glass

Appearance – Served a clear golden colored brew with a two finger pure white head of foam. The head faded slowly over time to leave a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew was slightly grainy with a moderately bready base. Along with these aromas were some lighter aromas of caramel and corn and a bit of grass.

Taste – The taste begins with a slightly grainy and bready taste along with a little bit of a corn malt flavor. As the taste advances some sweetness of a caramel nature comes to the tongue. Along with this, a grassy hop taste and a little bit of herb come to the tongue. With an increase in the grain, a decrease in the sweeter flavors and a little bit of a cracker flavor coming to the tongue at the end of the taste, one is left with a crisp and slightly drier malt flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the lighter side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that was on the slightly higher side. Both are rather nice for the style and make for a very easy drinking, crisp, and refreshing beer.

Overall – A decent lager with a very easy drinking taste and feel. Nothing outstanding but rather crisp and refreshing.
