This brewery seems determined to present itself as a craft brewer without formulating anything interesting or 'good' in its nominal attempts at different styles.

This particular beer is like a sad knock-off of Avery's Joe's Pilsner, which in itself is less than perfect.

All Upslope beers suffer from lackluster carbonation- each sip lands dead on my palette. This lager needs to be dryer and present a bigger head, to start.

Again and again I wonder if these smaller brewers are starting with some target references - Urquell, Paulaner, Asahi?

No way this is worth $9 a six pack.

Cheers.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a clear straw color with a tight, white head that leaves little to no lacing.

Smells of light grains and grass with a touch of lemon.

Tastes of the grassy and lemon hops with some grainy sweetness. Light hops notes lead off with the grass and some lemon zest. A touch of grainy sweetness comes through and rounds everything out. Very light profile which needs some oomph.

Mouthfeel is light with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, the right notes are there, but it is too light for me. However, I think they accomplished their goal of making a light and unoffensive lager.

12oz can with orange accents on the can. Color is yellow and the head is just ok. Smells like your average lager, beery. Taste is not bad but doesn't wow me at all. This is super easy to drink but for $8.49 I'm going to go with something else every time.
