I had reviewed this beer, and BA lost the review within seconds of my leaving it. The finer points:

Pale yellow. Pure white head, moderately sized, pretty good patchy lacing.

Difficulty drawing out a faint aroma. Pale malts, grains, bit of sweetness, touch of grass.

Flavor is malty, pale with some caramel sweetness, grass, light grains undertone, faint hops bitterness.

Mouthfeel is overcarbonated, obviously light-bodied, crisp and clean.

Thanks to my co-worker for bringing this back from Fargo

App- Standard gold lager colon with some dark colors throughout. A small 1/2" white head. No cling.

Smell- Not sure why, smells like my daughters finger paints, grass and dough.

Taste- It's a standard lager. Not very tasty. Retains the dough flavors and like description says the creaminess. It's crisp, just not very good.

Mouth- Light bodied and med/high carbonation. Residual grass and biscuit.

Drink- eh, only for the state tick. Never again.
