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

Poured clear gold with three fingers of white foamy head. Average retention but fair lacing.
Smell is clean malts and some herbal hops.
Taste is similar with smooth malts and a nice hop presence.
Mouthfeel is medium with just enough carbonation. Finish slightly dry with a lingering bitterness.
Overall a nice example of this style although not many comparable to try.
A plus for me is the the low abv. Good flavor and easy drinking.

Edit: Just noticed this was my 2000th review here on BA.

Picked up a single can tonight at the COOP... Poured into my skinny weizen glass... clear light golden with a short lasting white head that left no real lacing.

Nose is clean pale maltiness.... hops are there to balance... tough discerning what varietals.. sorta grassy/floral.

Flavor is dominated by bready maltiness... bitterness comes on mid palate on toward the finish... hops are again pretty background grassy.

Body is light... carbonation is good... extremely drinkable.

Honestly, this is pretty well done... A good pale lager made only about 10 blocks from my house. Nice.
