I had two of these over dinner the other night and they were so-so. That said I'd like to try it outside of the can.

Opened and drank directly from the 360 top can...which by the way is a terrific invention.

A: From what I can see, it is a clear straw light golden color. Can't speak of head or lacing, but carbonation looks to be nice.

S: Lots of bready malts and biscuit smells with some grassy herbal hops. I can smell the cleanliness of the beer.

T: Starts off slightly sweet with the bready and biscuit malt. That mixes with lots of grassy and straw flavors as well as some lemon and apple. The slight sweetness of the malt gets beaten down on the finish as it turns very crisp and clean with herbal notes and slight bitterness. Finish is very crisp and clean and dry. Great summer beer.

M: Perfect balance of malt and hops with terrific carbonation and a nice medium body to it. Finish is crisp and clean with no alcohol.

O: A really nice Helles Lager that ranks up there with the best. This is a terrific summer brew that I will have stocked in my fridge all summer long.

For those that get a chance, please try the new 360 top and drink it right from the can. That invention is fantastic as you really get the full effect of the nose with the entire lid off, but the convenience of a can! These are the PERFECT summer beer for whatever reason, beach, lawn, porch, whatever. Love them.

Thank you Slatetank for gifting me with a can of this. 12oz can with that nifty opener that lifts the entire top off becoming it's own glassware. Poured it anyway into a standard pint. The brew appears a clear straw yellow color with a white finger supported by rising bubbles. It leaves some spotty lacing on the glass.

The nose contains notes of straw grain that is sweet and lightly buttery with a hint of sulfur and floral/fruity notes that seem to come from a more alcohol driven character than hops.

The taste is buttery and sweet like caramel with a grassy herbal contrast. It is fruity into the aftertaste with a mild alcohol ester just like the nose suggests.

This is a medium bodied brew with s modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp and easy drinking. It plays the part of the style well. If this was a style I got thirsty for, id reach for it again.
