This is what an American Summer Beer should be!
Light, unassuming, but flavorful and rich all the same. Pours a fizzy light straw color, and with the fragrance you might think you're in for a typical lawnmower beer.
The beer comes in light and clean, with a sweet caramel malt breadiness leading to a slight bitter followed by crisp apples and some spices with a bit of astringency. Here, about halfway through the beer, the grains become very apparent and the beer has a pleasant "beer"ness to it.
All in all, this is what domestic lagers should be. Light, drinkable, but with flavor, character, and an experience that refreshes.

3.7/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Arrives with a clear golden color but very little foam; virtually no lacing
Smell: Grainy, with a hint of apple
Taste: Bready, up front, with a growing apple sweetness; the hops add a lemony, somewhat grassy character
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low carbonation
Overall: A little too sweet and lacks some balance; but for the poor mouthfeel, it is still a decent beer
Serving type: on-tap
