Haven't had much TG stuff. And admittedly I was told this was one of their lesser offerings.

Aroma (3.5): It smells fine. I mean as much as a lager does.
Appearance (4): Nice golden color. A little more golden than most lagers are.
Taste (3): Meh. It is better than Bud Light I suppose. Not much to speak of really.
Palate (3.5): Decent mouthfeel I suppose. Fairly refreshing.

I'm not sure I'd need to get this one again. I like lagers just as much as the next guy, but this was pretty standard. Maybe twas overhyped for me?

Clear yellow with a brief fizzy head. No retention or lacing.

Mildly fruity and grassy aromas. White grapes.

Clean grassy and white fruit flavors. Lightly hopped.

Crisp, clean, light mouthfeel. Very refreshing.

A simple beer but executed without flaw. Extremely drinkable.

Very light yellow in color. Clear. Forms a somewhat fizzy white head that offers little retention. No lacing. Aroma is mildly fruity with notes of apple, juicy fruit, and grassy hops. Taste is more of the same: mild fruitiness with very light flavors of bread, grassy hops, and just a hint of toast. Very clean tasting. Light bodied, light carbonation, minimal bitterness.
A pretty good beer from a not overly popular style. I figured TG would have went the non-traditional route on this beer, but it appears they chose to be very restrained with it.

From notes on 2/28/14

Very cloudy light straw colored body. Kind of looks like pee. Very sweet yeasty smelling. Sweet tasting. Kind of a dough flavor. Pretty good for a lager.
