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.
