look: 2.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Tasted On: 05-20-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Tulip pint
Purchased: 6-pack from Kroger

Clear and very light blond-colored beer with a white head that stands a couple of fingers tall. Head retention is good, and leaves a fair trace of lace behind.

Hay and grassy aromas, plus sweet bread-like malts.

The first sip reveals a crisp and clean lager with lots of carbonation. The taste is semisweet from the malts, with no bitterness of hops. I also get some lemony character. The body is light, true to the style.

The finish has some malt sweetness to it, but is generally lacking in flavor. Overall this isn't a great beer, but for the sad style of light lager it's not a bad representation.
