A - Poured a clear, pale gold color with a small, bubbly white head. If left very minimal lacing.
S - It smelled of caramel with some sweet floral notes.
T - Caramel, toffee and bread crust. A touch of spicy bitterness adds balance.
M - Crisp and smooth. A light bodied lager that is fairly dry.
O - Easy drinking Helles Lager. Could see it selling well in a blazing hot Oklahoma summer.

12oz bottle poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass.
A - Clear golden body with a fleeting white head.
S - Sweet grains, bright grassy aroma, tangy fruits come out, grapes come to mind.
T - Sweet grain wrapped in grassy and peppery bitterness. Some honey and biscuits come out as it warms. Finishes with fruity with notes of grapes and lemon zest.
M - Firm medium body with low but prickly carbonation, wet and rich on the palate.
Much better than expected. A good firm mouthfeel helped keep the flavors rich and malty. I would definitely pick this up again.

Clear gold, thin wispy white head. Grass and black pepper hoppiness on the nose leading to clean crackery malt body. Some bitterness on the back end gives a bit of oomph to an otherwise light beer. Goes down easy, which I guess is the point of a summer lager. Not bad, but I'll go for Sierra Nevada Summerfest over this for my summertime lager needs

Pours a clear light yellow. Smells of freshly milled grain. Taste begins with a very light cracker malt flavor, followed by a bit of herbal, soapy hop flavor, and finishing with a bit of bittersweet flowery flavor. Mouthfeel is pretty good. Overall an ok beer, better than your average macro, but doesn't live up to many Munich Helles I've had.

Pours to a nice white head that falls to a paper thin film and leaves very little lace. Color is a rich, clear gold. Aroma is very pleasant with a sweet grainy malty presence with grassy/spicy/ floral German hops in the background. Flavor delivers on the promise of a session beer and a Munich Helles. Sweet, soft malty flavors mix well with the soft floral contribution of the hops, which is a welcome change from the typical hoppy Pilsners, wheaty wheats, fruit-infused ales, boring "blondes", and crappy adjunct-laden macros that are considered summer, lawnmower fare. This stuff feels great in the mouth, just the right CO2 and no astringency. Overall, I really like this beer for the summer, it has that unmistakable painstaking flavor that only decoction-mashed German lagers have but with a subtle contribution of the hops and no wheat or weird ingredients. Mustang wins.

P: Pours a bright golden color that is crystal clear and active with carbonation rising to the top. A 1/2 in of foamy white head that is gone quick.
S: Fresh sweet grainy malts, lemon, hay, bananas, peaches, and subtle salt and spices.
T/M: Sweet grains, honey, green grapes, banana bread, and basil. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Finish is wet and leaves behind bitter white and green grapes.
O: I liked this beer a lot. It's a great beer to enjoy while relaxing around the house. The flavors mix well and the hops to malt is just right.

Not my favorite style, so take this review with a grain of salt.
Enjoyed from a bottle at Harry Hudson's in Oklahoma City.
Nice slightly malty aroma.
Flavor at first is rather boring but improves as I drink it. Lots of grain, balanced with a nice crispness and a little bit of hops. Lingering dry aftertaste but not off notes (as I'm using to having from any "summer lager" that is more macro in style).
Medium mouthfeel with a fair amount of carbonation.
Overall, I like it ok but I'm not wowed by this very dry lager.
