4/5  rDev -1.2%

Appearance: Clear gold.
Smell: Lemon, floral, and honey biscuit.
Taste: Lemon and some honey.
Mouthfeel: Almost spritzy.

This is one of the best pale brews I've had. It is immensely refreshing; a hybrid of a lager and a pils. The lemon in the smell is the first on the scene, followed by the biscuits. It is the same with the taste, except the lemon dominates most of it. You could drink this every day, but mostly on warmer days; actually, it's just as excellent on cold days. I would definitely get this again.

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

I think my bottle could have been fresher as it was a little undercooked carbonation-wise.

A - Clear, bright and with a satisfyingly billowy head. I poured it in to style-appropriate glassware and it looked sort of amazing.

S - Light hop profile complimented by malt, spice, orange peel and a little hop.

T - Light hop profile complimented by malt, spice, orange peel and a little hop.

M - Light and refreshing but I'd have liked a little more fizz.

O - Beerdrinkers of the world (and by world I mean Beer Advocates) really need to recognise that there is definitely a place for lagers. This was a great way to start my session, easing in with a classic and refreshing beverage.
