3.5/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Setting: My home, cool Spring night.

Serving type: Chilled can, poured into a glass.

Art: new art for this beer. Navy blue and beige can, with multiple gear shifts and belts.

Beer: Golden color; no distinct flavors, but hints of wheat, honey, vague malt and citrus (very vague). I don't know if I taste much of anything here, still it has a nice taste. Strange, but totally enjoyable. A lingering taste.

Serving type: can

Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip glass.

Golden amber pour with a bright white a frothy head. This beer is crystal clear with lots of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. The lacing is fine but irregular but does stay with the glass. The aroma is classic lager- biscuit and grassy, mild hops. There are hints of tropical fruits, but they are illusive at best. The body of this beer is heavier than expected from a lager, but the difference is welcoming. The palate is crisp and clean with nice malty notes balanced nicely with a piney hop bitterness. The hops continue through the finish and linger for a good 20 seconds. Overall, a very well done lager and a fantastic sessionable beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Unremarkable but pleasant enough aroma. Gorgeous, classic head with considerable staying power. Blond appearance belies a tasty beer. Medium body with clean finish.

[I am copying these notes over from RateBeer ... it does not require as long of review. I tasted this some time ago so I can't add anything.]

Serving type: on-tap
