Served in the soup top can. A delightful fruty and grassy aroma greets the nose as you open this beer its a delightful golden hue with a hint of amber. Taste is grass fruity hops and a hint of doughy malt on the back a little thin on mouthfeel but very refreshing. All in all my favorite session lager.

Pours the color of light straw with just a tint of amber. Has a finger of creamy white foam that fell as I drank to a thin ring.Nose is malt sweetness and leafy herbal. Cheerful golden scent of grass and a bit of spice. Moderate malts on the nose. The taste is perfection. A citric crispness takes the palate to a smooth and apporachable malt sweetness. Leafy flavors with plenty of earth and a a spicy bitter. The mouthfeel is exemplary. Lively and crisp like a brisk wind. It's sweetly breaddy and fills up your mouth to finish dry and with a touch of spice and faint bitter to linger in the aftertaste.

Friendly. A lively tonic with bright and favorable aspects. Just what the doctor ordered.

Very very very light and smooth beer. Very easy to drink, to drink fast, and to drink allot of. Slight slight bit of hops, no bitterness, light carbonation. Easy to drink, easy on the wallet, great with a burger and truffle fries. Looks like a standard lager, smells nice, good crisp clean mouthfeel, would definitely order again.

The beer comes in a very clear golden yellow with some carbonation rising up in it.

The aroma has some grassy hops, slight malt, and spice.

The flavor follows with a citrus and grassy hop bitterness. There's a good amount of sweet bready malt that balances this beer out, while still staying very crisp. There's a bit of spice int he back as well.

This is a really good beer for the style and quite enjoyable.

Poured from the new can, where the almost entire top peels off.

A- Copper orange with a small finger of head.

S- Malt sweetness and a hint of hops.

T- Straightfoward malt sweetness with a bit of hops for balance. Nothing complex, but refreshing on a hot day.

M- Slightly overcarbonated in my opinion, but still pretty decent.

O- Overall, a good beer for a hot day. I wouldn't buy it all the time, but it is a nice change of pace from IPAs and Pale Ales.
