look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Crystal clear golden hue, crowned with a rather dismal head that fades to a small ring within seconds of pouring. Nice, steady streams of carbonation gracefully drift upward.

Aroma:
Sweet, fresh grains fill the nose with a light lemon tinge. Simple, but very nice.

Taste:
Just as sweet and simple as the aroma. Light, grassy hop bite right up front hits briefly before fresh, lightly toasted biscuits and lemon zest trickle in. Light doughy character and table sugar round off the finish with a tasty, sweet aftertaste.

Mouthfeel:
Light body - Clean, crisp, perfectly carbonated, and highly refreshing.

Overall:
This being my first encounter with this style, I wasn't sure what to expect. That said, the end of my only bottle had me wishing I had purchased more. It's delicious! Incredibly refreshing and easy to drink make this inoffensive beer a must have!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Tasted 1 March 2014.

Pours a hazy pale sunny yellow. One finger of white head, decent retention, okay lacing. A sparse column of bubbles rising up.

Smell is faintly grainy with the corny sweetness typical of many pale lagers. But it's varied and pleasant, with subtle depth and delicately rounded edges.

Taste is really nice. Starts out with thin grains and a light syrupy sweetness, then drifts slowly towards a clean finish. Could use a bit of bitter to balance it, as it is at times overly sweet. But I like it.

Feel is good. Medium-light body, low fizzy carbonation. Could use some more buzz as a contrast to the sweetness.

I'm not a huge fan of pale lagers. But this one is far better than most. It's bright, flavorful, and clean. Excellent.
