12oz into a pint

A - Pours a light golden color. Very clear. Not much for head formation, just a bit of white stuff. Like I said, clear.

S - Light pilsner malt nose, and even that I had to hunt for.

T - Starts off smooth and light, a little sweet - much like the aroma. Then it starts to add more strong nuttier pilsner malts and just a hint of citrus hops. Finishes clean with just a few more pilsner malts. Flavors are just not very bold.

M - Moderate body and like carbonation. Almost a little low for what I would be looking for - doesn't quite come off as much of a lager.

O/D - A nice easy drinker on a cool day. Not much about it that distinguishes it from the rest. Is well done for the style of course. A bit filling at times, abv is right in line.

Thanks to bentwookie for this. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a straw color, displaying brilliant clarity, with a finger of fluffy white head. Pretty good retention and messy lacing. Nice effervescent carbonation.

S: Moderate maltiness with slight sweetness, hint of grassiness, lemon, and DMS.

T: Nice pale malty flavor with an undertone of DMS, finishing with a very mild bitterness and a hint of sweetness.

M: Medium-high, crisp carbonation and medium-light body.

O: Very easy to drink. This works really well as both a warm weather, lawnmower beer, and for spicy foods like Indian or Mexican due to the slight sweetness and crispness.

Slightly hazy pale golden color body. Very clean nose. Saaz is apparent. I enjoy the bready flavors and the overall hoppiness, but there's a toastiness that I'm just not feeling. Almost like this was brewed by New Belgium. Mouthfeel is bubbly and full; solid. This would be a pretty solid go-to beer if not for the toastiness. Kinda kills it for me. Solid otherwise.
