Pours a light golden color with light haze and a fluffy white head that quickly fades to a small ring and leaves just a little lacing.

Bready aroma upfront with light hops and a touch of honey in the back.

Taste starts off a little sweet with bready malts upfront. Some honey shows up in the middle along with a very faint hop bitterness and a hint of citrus in the finish. Some grassy and floral notes are also present throughout.

Medium body with light carbonation. Crisp, refreshing, very drinkable especially on a hot day. For the style, this was quite enjoyable and I wouldn't mind picking up some more.

Poured the bottle into a glass... Pours well, has a couple fingers head not too frothy. The color is a little hazy, but only a slight hint if you look close. Has a good look to it in the glass though. Smells fine, you don't pick up on any one distinctive smell. Very high drinkability. Goes down easy, a good pilsner to drink on a regular basis. Perfect session beer to have in stock for ballgames and guests.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a minimal white head. There are a lot of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass during consumption. The aroma is of bread and yeast. It also has a slight citrus aroma. It's a very clean smelling beer. I don't detect much hops. The flavor is of pale malts with some lemon flavor. It's bready, but also watery. This is a light bodied beer with plentiful carbonation. The drinkability is very high. Overall, this is a very good beer. It is refreshing and something worth drinking on a hot day or during a cookout.
