This beer could convert all the Bud drinkers to microbrew.

Modeled after the traditional pilsner. Pours a golden amber with a 1/4 inch head that fades quickly. Smells of malt and grains. Tastes light, crisp, and clean. Very good lager. Great for everyday drinking, especially in the summer. And could be a great tool to introduce friends to microbrews.

Serving type: on-tap

Last review from notes at the brewery.

Pour is a bright slightly cloudy yellow. Thin white head.

The nose holds nice spicy notes with a subtle smoothness. A hint of grassy herbal hops only to keep things in check.

now the flavor. Maybe the best AAL. Theres that sweetness from the adjuncts, but a crisp feeling comes in abruptly to just make things a-ok. Hints of lemony citrus flavors flash across the tongue, while the underlying sweetness smooths things out. The lager smoothness is key. Its like the best vision of a cream ale-lager smoothness and ale flavor.

Very well done, and easily the best of their current selection!
