Overall an ok beer... I had it way to late to give a fair review. Tastes like it was pretty well balanced with good munich notes shining through. Overall nothing special

16oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours a bright golden with a slight haze. Absolutely no head, lacing, or retention; nice color though. The aromas are full of bready malts and grains. Lots of grassy and earthy aromas. Lots of lemon peel in the nose and flavors. The flavors match and are extremely earthy as well. Nice amount of corn. It has a subtle bitterness to it and has a little spicy kick to it. There is a nice sweetness that cuts down on the hops. Very sharp and crisp. Extremely refreshing. Mouthfeel is light and thin; carbonation is moderate. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Extremely quaffable.

This is a very tasty lager. I'm just disappointed with it having zero head, lacing, retention, etc. But it's all good if that's the only letdown. Very enjoyable.

16oz can poured into a pils glass
A: Light orange, great clarify, 1/2-finger head
S: Full of malts, wheat, a bit of corn. Light grassiness also
T: Malt-forward again with wheat/corn, also hints of grass & herbs
& a citrus (mostly lemon) finish
M: Light-bodied, very refreshing, great balane
O: I'm not always a fan of this style preferring bolder beers, but it's tough to do one of these right and this one definitely is. If only it were available during the summer
