look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I ordered this at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago, mainly because I never saw it anywhere else before. 11.2oz brown bottle with no freshness date or anything about the beer on the label.

The beer poured a perfectly clear pale gold color and made a ½-finger of white head that lasted about a minute. There was very little lacing.

The best way to describe the smell is - there isn't any.

Nice malt and grain flavor with perhaps a touch of honey as well. Then came the big surprise. OMG there are actually detectable hops in here that impart a mild bitter flavor. Much better taste than I expected.

Light, smooth, and crisp with a medium high carbonation level - which I liked.

It's still just a macro lager, but one of the better ones that I have tasted. No alcoholic flavors and very drinkable.

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

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a very decent and solidy stable white foamy head.
The aroma is easily picked up, mostly grainy and malty.
The taste is pleasantly bitter, no initial sweetness and watery feel, nicely balanced body, coming together with more than nice bitterness.
Very nice for a lager, actually one of the better ones lately.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with fluffy white head and soda like carbonation. Nose is of some pale malt and hint of hops. Body is light and crisp. Taste is of sweet malt balanced by some hop bitterness. Finish is almost non-existent. Typical pale lager.
