3.58/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Crystal clear dark yellow. Fluffy off white head. Decent head retention and awesome lacing.
S: Biscuity, bread crust, some slight hop spice. Getting just a touch of that lager yeast smell.
T: Some semi sweet grains up front along with some mild to medium spicy/herbal hops. Can pick up some faint peaches or nectarines. A lot sweeter than I thought this was going to be. Finishes fairly clean, somewhat of a slightly sweet cereal grain lingering. Thought it would be a little more crisp, the sweetness probably takes away from that crisp factor.
M: Nice medium body (thought it would be lighter). Average carbonation. Feels good.
O: Good drinkability, though I wouldn't want more than two or so pints. I can see what they are going for for sure, but I would like this to be a bit more dry, crisp and a little less sweet.
Serving type: can

4/5 rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: poured into a pilsner glass to a clear light gold with a two finger dense and soapy white head that retains well and leaves decent lacing
S: smells of clean grain and some citrus with a bit of pine
T: taste is smooth clean and slightly sweet malt with some slight citrus from the hops. swallow is a little spicy and citrusy
M: this beer is fairly light on the mouth but it stays away from being watery. carbonation is soft and slightly prickly and the finish is refreshing
O: a quality american lager with zero adjuncts. no real faults and it's very clean and refreshing.
