3.95/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy straw golden orange with a lot of bubbles. About two fingers of white head that fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A bready and fairly earthy malt driven aroma with hints of biscuit and light fruit. Pale malts upfront with hints of grains, straw, biscuit, crackers, and yeast. Earthy European hops with hints of spice and grass. Citrus fruit hints of orange and lemon zest. A decent Euro style lager aroma.

Taste: Like the smell hints at, a bready and earthy malt forward taste with notes of bready grains and light fruit. Upfront pale malts with notes of grains, wheat, straw, crackers, biscuit, and lager yeast. Earthy and somewhat grassy European hops with some slight spice. Bright citrus notes of lemon zest and orange. A decent lager taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, clean, and smooth with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A decent take on a Euro style lager. Good bready and citrusy taste.

Serving type: bottle

3.84/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Clear straw color covered with a bubbly pure-white head that has decent retention. Aromas of peppery, herbal hops, gently sweet Pils malt, and clean lager yeast. Cereal-like Pilsner malt sweetness in the flavor with some grassy noble hops to balance and a touch of honey. Body is a little better than light keeping things very drinkable. A good light lager for sure and a more than solid choice for hot weather drinking.

Serving type: can
