Pours hazy gold with one finger of white head. Minor lacings.
Smell is grains, some minor floral hops.
Taste is malty sweet with a decent amount of bitter hops.
Mouthfeel is fine, carbonation is adequete and medium bodied.
Overall a better choice than macros but slightly let down compared to Hop Valley's other styles. (320 characters)

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light straw amber with a thin white head that dissipates to a patches and a thin ring around the glass. Nice lager aroma of bready malt, grain and lightly citrus and floral hops. Flavor follows with mild grainy malt with a distinct corn flavor (although I don't think adjuncts are used here), mild citrus hops to finish. Light bodied. A crafty answer to macro lagers, with a little more flavor, but not really all that distinct. Pleasant like most in this style. The corn flavor is certainly odd; I've never tasted that in macros which actually do use corn. One of life's little mysteries. Not a big drinker of of light lagers, but this is harmless. (701 characters)

Served from the can into a pilsner glass

A- Poured a very clear light golden color with tons of visible carbonation with soapy white head that left chunky lace

S- Big pilsner malt, lemon, sweet graininess, creamed corn. Pretty sweet aroma

T- Very sweet creamed corn and graininess. Some lemon notes. Very sweet flavor profile.

M- Very high carbonation, medium to lighter bodied, mostly dry

O-A very sweet lager, a little too sweet for me. A pretty simple tasting lager, not too much going on. (497 characters)

Pours a bright golden color with a one-finger head into my glass. I've heard good things about this brewery from a friend.

Sweet and grainy malt in the nose. Not much else is there. Hopefully, there's more to the taste than that.

Ditto on the taste. Very sweet with just a touch of crispness. Buttered bread comes to mind as well. I was hoping for some hops to balance it out but to no avail.

Flavors linger at the back of the throat. Carbonation is mid-range. Goes down alright.

Not a bad attempt at the style. The sweetness of the malt might turn off purists though. (572 characters)

Appearance is a light golden yellow forming a fair head that dissipates leaving sparce lace. Smell of very light hops and malt. Taste has a metallic bitterness that is not balanced with the sweeter malt. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. This lager is not enjoyable and needs a little work. (298 characters)
