From a growler purchased about 50 hours ago filled at Casonova's in Hudson....still perfectly carbonated..

A-Bright golden colored....hazy...nice fluffy white head..

S-Hay...grains....not real assertive on the nose..

T-Loaded with flavor....very bready and sweet with some light lemony citrus notes....does not remind me of a California Common at all but more like a Kellerbier...I can't keep this in my glass it is so tasty...

M-Perfect....rounded and smooth....perfect weight...not watery at all but not heavy....

O-One of my favorite easy drinking beers of all-time. A keg of this at a summer pool party would be perfect. I could drink this every day for the rest of my life. I really, really like this one.

A - Very clear, light gold color with a thin, foamy, light, white head. Leaves only the faintest lace.

S - Nice, clean, bready, cracker and grainy aroma. Pretty simple but enjoyable. Very faint apple and lemon nose along with some honey sweetness.

T - Follows the nose. Dominated by bready, grainy, and sweet cracker like malt. Very clean and crisp. Mid sip brings about a hint of the lemon and green apple, providing a bit of balance to the sweetness.

M - Light body with a nice level of carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing.

D - Pretty much what I want from a good lager. Light, refreshing, and crisp. Nice bready malt with a nice balance to it. Very easy to drink.

Notes: On tap at The Sanctuary. Very enjoyable lager that is fresh, crisp and refreshing. Pretty simple but it has a subtle complexity and balance. Very nice on a summer day.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours a brilliant light golden color that is hazy. Bright white pillowy 1 finger head that doesn't last long. Very little lacing on my Duvel Tulip.

S - Hints of lemon, grass, floral, and faint bread.

T - Follows the nose. Light and bready with faint wheat. Hints of the lemon and maybe apple give a tangyness, providing a bit of balance to the sweetness. The taste of this Lager is incredible, best I have had.

M - So light and crisp with good carbonation. Leaves a nice tang on the finish.

D - All around great refreshing lager. Light and crisp. I don't normally drink Lagers, but I will have more of this as it will be great to have during hot summer days. Well done TG!
