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.

It poured golden yeal, light head, lots of carbonation, and some lacing. It had the taste of corn and metal, with hints of anything, was also watery and light bodied. It was refreshing, had no edge, and went down easy. It had no after to speak of and not many redeeming qualities. Good party beer I guess for all those hipster types out there.
