Poured a rich orange with a finger of white head. Aroma of lemon, hints of orange, and grain.

Moderate carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Light caramel up front with mild floral notes followed by biscuit and a bit of lemon bitterness on the tail end.

Nice overall, pretty dry and refreshing without being overly thin.

Poured for a bottle into pint glass. Nice tawny straw color looks a colorful for a lager.

Smell is pretty standard, a bit strong on caramel to help it remain distinguished from other standard lagers.

Quite frankly taste is not much better than your standard lager. If you're looking for something that lingers a bit on your pallet and presents a bit more robustly, this is your lager.

Can into pint glass.

Slightly hazy yellowish gold body with a fizzy white head. Good retention and lacing.

Smells of some crystal and Munich malt with a grassy, lemony, and floral hop note. Nice crisp finish with a pleasant bitterness.
This beer is well-balanced, and a surprisingly tasty summer lager. This could be the beer that wins over many a BMC drinker!

Body is spot on. Medium, well-carbonated, and a light scrubbing effervescent feel.

Overall-- this is a very good canned lager. I like it. Better than its rating.

Pours a golden straw color with a white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is mostly cereal grains and a clean grassy aroma. A light citrusy note comes through on the end of the nose. This is all goes into a pretty nice flavor on the taste, with a clean grassy brightness that makes way to a lime zest like finish, all the while being anchored by a cereal grain like maltiness. Very solid lager here. Easy to pound these without thinking about it.

A: Poured from the bottle into a pilsner-type glass. Body is clear but dark golden with a half-finger foamy white head.

S: Bready malt and cereal grains with a touch of fruity yeast. Surprised by the fruitiness in a lager.

T: Light grainy malt with a grassy hop bitterness at the finish. Fairly pilsner-like in a lot of ways. An easy drinker for the summer.

M: Light in heft, though not watery or thin. Good for the style, as is the slightly prickly carbonation.

O: Good stuff.

Poured from a 12oz can into a Cisco Pint Glass.

Old Gold with a grayish white head, carbonation not visible, very nice lacing.

Aroma is muted, a faint whiff of Noble Hops, not much else.

mouthfeel is nice and soft up front with a faint tickle of carbonation.

taste: balanced malt and hops bitterness. Beer finishes nicely that leaves me wanting more.

Notes: this is a fine beer, balanced good looking (the old gold color is dark for the style). It has a pleasant taste and mouthfeell. My only issue is that the ABV is a bit high as this is such a sessionable beer and 5.6% is too high for this. Overall, a top notch lager.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a crisp, orange-gold color with a filmy white head. Aromas of toasted oats and butter blended along the nose. The beer's flavors are light and smooth, with a dry hopped bitterness at the end of the palate. Honey and toasted oats throughout, as well. The aftertaste is slgihtly resiny, with a roasted character. Smooth bodied finish, making this a tasty, very easy drinking brew.

A: The beer is relatively clear dark yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lacy webs of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of spicy hops in the nose.
T: Flavors of bready malts and spicy hops are present in the taste, which also has a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a good balance between malts and hops, neither of which seems to stand out in particular.
