2.93/5 rDev -10.9%
A - A finger's worth of perfectly level crisp off-white colored head... Minimal retention gies way to an enticing veil of lace ind slight collar... Lots of medium sized carbonation bubbles, half of which cling to the sides of the glass and the other half of which rise at a very rapid pace... The color is a darker than expected mix of bronze and copper...
S - Bread crust... Cereal grains... Fresh biscuits... Perhaps some corn notes... Some slightly sweet fruit notes... Very little if any hop presence...
T - Starts as expected with lots of bready malts... Biscuit... Grain... Bread crust... The finish is unexpectedly sweet and even a bit tart... In an American Pale Lager, those are desired flavors...
M - On the lighter side of medium bodied... Briskly carbonated... A bit sleek... Rather one dimensional...
D - An honest, but uninspired attempt... Not something I would drink again nor recommend... Even at the highly accessible 4.5% ABV, I'm not sure this one is worth seeking out... The slightly odd flavor is a killer for me...

I got this as part of a BOTMC. I poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a SA perfect pint glass. The pour is pale yellow with a moderate white head. The aroma is non descript, hay, grass, sweet. Taste like a typicla lager, light and easy drinking. A decent all around lager.

12 oz into a pint
A - Pours a very clear, light brown color. Little bubbling, appears lightly carbonated. Head formation is light, just a film of light white.
S - A light scent of grainy notes, lightly malty. Some caramel and toffee is present, lightly toasted.
T - Light malty note, 2-row light sweetness with some grainy caramel notes. Little hopping - little bitterness. Finishes with some caramel malt notes.
M - Lightly carbonated, little sting on the tongue. Finishes very clean, smooth. Clinging sweetness on the tongue.
D - Easy drinking. ABV is well within sessionability. Lightly filling at times. Malting is pretty assertive, leaving a sweet finish.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium copper with a one finger white head. Fairly good head retention and lacing with the head hanging around for awhile.
Aroma of cooked vegetables and some corn. There is really a lot of DMS here and I'm not sure if it is intended or not. Some caramel and grassy hops are buried in the background.
The flavor thankfully has less in the way of DMS but does bring along an odd, sour tartness that really detracts from the flavor. Some toffee and bready malt along with hay in the background but again I feel like there are too many off-flavors up front. Pretty watery mouthfeel but that is not out of line with a beer that is only 4.5%
Overall, I'm not really impressed. If this was cleaned up a little it could really shine.

Pre-Prohibition lager pours a golden color with a dissipating head. There wasn't any aroma from this beer. The taste had crisp malt undertones, with a strong overly sweet fruity, almost apple like taste. Hard to drink, and way to sweet. Overall its a very sweet and fruity like lager.

Thanks to Fugazme for some fine local Nebraskan brews.
Cystal clear pale golden colored. Large fluffy white head quickly recedes to a thin white film on top of the beer.
Lot's of pale malt in the aroma. Fresh baked biscuits. Faint hint of a spicy hop and fruitiness.
Flavorful for the style. Lot's of pale malt. Biscut flavored. Fruit--green apple. Hint of Juicy Fruit gum.
Light bodied and crisp in the mouthfeel. Very clean finish. Mouthfeel is made for sessioning.
Very drinkable. One to keep stocked in your fridge in the summer. Would be a good beer to have in cans.
