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.

Serving type: bottle

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.

Poured from 12oz can into 16oz mug.

Appearance: Bright and clear golden color with a large white head that dissipates quickly leaving only traces of lace.

Smell: Sweet malts backed up by grains and citrus with some floral/herbal hints as well.

Taste: Begins tasting of sweet pale malt and that flavor really remains throughout. Rounds out to a grainy flavor before finishing with a fruity/honey-like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp with a very refreshing finish.

Overall: A good representation of the style and a great beer to drink during a hot San Diego summer day. This could be an excellent go-to for sessioning, and is also an excellent beer to introduce those not used to craft to.

Serving type: can
