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.

12 ounce bottle - Hop City Beer & Wine in Birmingham, Alabama.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, pale hay-hued beer with a medium-small, white head, though its retention is fair.

Smell: Pils maltiness with softly toasted grains, a little yeasty breadiness, and gentle hop notes of lemon and grassiness.

Taste: Subtle pils malt bill, lightly toasted grains, a modest cereal sweetness. Citrus alongside a minute grassiness, ample peppery hop bitterness. Scantly yeasty. A little more lemon precludes the crisp, easy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium, active carbonation.

Overall: A crisp, clean, refreshing beer for the Memorial Day Weekend.

Served in a Lgunitas mason jar.

One day I will catch a fish like the one on this label. That will be the day I metamorphose into a different person, one capable of catching any fish, much less those worthy of a wall mount. Regardless, this stuff pours a clear brass-straw topped by a short finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises dry barley, light sweet corn, sweet flowers, a touch of grass, and a few sprinkles of powdered sugar. The taste brings in more of the same, some lovely helles-style goodness trickling through my GI tract. The body straddles the line between hefty light and light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a very solid and highly drinkable little lager, something we need more of 'round here.
