look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance:bright, clear with a long lasting head. The lacing however, fell rather quickly.

Aroma: Rather low grain aroma, no DMS or sweetness present, no real hop aroma.

Taste: no real maltyness presence, no real hop presence, balanced between hops and malt. has a yeasty finish (which i enjoy)

Mouthfeel: on the thinner side but still enough. higher in carbonation. not really creamy.

Drinkability: I enjoyed this beer a bunch. I will be purchasing this again soon.

12oz. brown longneck with bottling code printed on bottle below the label. Pours a slightly hazy light amber gold with a 1/2" of white bubbley head that retains well. A small amount of lace sticks as the head eventually recedes.

The smell is sweet and fruity malt with some grassy hop notes and some bubblegum as well.

The flavor is much like the smell with a fairly sweet maltiness upfront, followed by a mild grassy hop that just balances the brew. As it warms a bit, the bubblegum flavor becomes more pronounced and lingers some in the aftertaste. The strange thing about this bubblegum like flavor is that some bottles out of the six-pack had it, a couple of them didn't. The ones that didn't had a wheat type flavor instead...not nearly as sweet.

Nice carbonation with a fairly light body lead to a pleasantly smooth mouthfeel...quite drinkable and mild in the alcohol. Their slogan "Extinguish your thirst" is quite appropriate for this beer. I liked this much better than their Redhead Ale.

Picked this up as a single 12oz bottle from Total Wine in McLean VA. Can't find a bottle date so here it goes.

Has a very nice appearance for a pilsner. Lots of carbonation and nice head with good retention.

I really like the scent. Bready, malty & grassy. Not much hop presence but overall a really nice smelling brew.

The taste is a little weird. It's easy to drink with a crisp finish. Has a cheap adjunct taste to it though. Not much of the noble hop varieties are coming through in the taste. I'm really just getting an AAL type of taste out of this beer, and not a great one either.

It surprisingly has a very rich mouthfeel. Not fizzy or watery at all.

Well its not a beer I'd really go after again. It was fine for a sampling, but I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Just doesn't have much purpose at all.

Seved on a bottle,poured on a beer mug.Together with grilled fish with some kind of sauce that's sweet and spicy.

Appearance-Piss yellow with a 2 finger gassy head.Lots of carbonation.

Smell-It smelled very malty.Seem to have some kind of fruit characteristic to it.Not much hops that I can smell of.

Taste-Very similar to the beer.Lots of malt and fruit taste.Could taste some hops.No aftertaste.

Mouthfeel.Nothing exceptional,nothing bad.

Drinkability.Very light beer.Good beer for the summer!

Heaps better than it's brother the Red Ale.That was bad!Especially the aftertaste of that beer.

12oz brown bottle.

Slight fizzle to the head but it stays around, faintly chill hazed yellow color. Lemony, yeasty, grainy aroma though clean for the most part. Ale-like body / mouth feel with a slick crispness. Lemony and grainy throughout, spicy hop bitterness to balance. Yeast goes nutty and actually compliments the grain. Relatively clean after taste.

Not half bad, not as clean or crisp as I would like to see in this lager but again ... not half bad.

Pours a hazy light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some grassy or hay aromas. Taste is much the same with sugary and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but pretty sweet flavor wise.
