22oz bottle, release #1 bottled on 5/4/11 and 4.5% ABV. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a smallish white head that quickly goes down to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet corny malts with some slightly metallic noble hops.

The flavor is sweet vegetal malts with a decent noble hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with sharp carbonation.

Overall, very similar to an above average euro lager with a little more hops.

A- Pours a hazy gold color with a thin white head. Head has pretty solid retention and leaves a bit of layer lacing.

S- A bit of a grassy hop, tons of grains, and lemons. Not really anything strong here and nothing to write home about. All pretty mellow and blah.

T- Is a lot like the nose. A bit of Earthy and grassy hops, touch of lemon sourness and that about sums it up. Pretty boring and really nothing going on.

M- Lighter side of medium in body and carbonation was about right on.

O- I struggled with this one and was glad it was finally gone. Pretty one dimensional and boring. I'll pass on this one.

On tap at the brewery in Denver. Gold color, looks pretty good. Aroma is a ho-hum lager. All malt and not a hop to speak of. Flavor was pretty standard lager with almost no hop character until a very bitter finish which I just didn't feel meshed well with the taste. Another bummer from the new brewery but hey at least I didn't buy a bottle right?
