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.

A: Pours a relatively clear pale yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some lemon + straw yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a medium thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet malts along with lighter notes of grain and just a hint of corn. Light to moderate aromas of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet biscuit malts with a touch of grain and corn. There are light flavors of grassy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which lingers slightly.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

O: Refreshing, easy to drink, and enjoyable - this might be my new go to grilling beer. Will be great in the hot NC summer.
