Small to slightly more in white to off white head settles to a think froth above a not quite clear pale straw golden colored beer.

Light pale lemony citrus with some very light yeast aroma.

Light lemony citrus taste with some very light pale malts and even lighter

Light dryish almost to a puckering effect with the aftertaste that harbors just a bit of the lemony citrus taste along with it on this light bodied beer.

An fairly alright tasting beer, maybe a bit to much lemon for me, I do love fresh lemonade but when I'm drinking beer, ummm.

12oz can poured into a stang. The brew is a hazed yellow color with a rich 3+ finger white head. Lots of spotty lace sticks to the glass and the brew displays solid powers of retention.

The nose is zesty with hops and has a fresh cereal grain sweetness. Some lemony notes and fruity alcohol. Sulfur emerges as this warms and overall it shows a little bit too much bready/cereal/wheat grain scent than what I am use to in the style.

The taste has a peculiar grainy wheat sweetness which is no surprise based off thr aromatics. The sweetness blends into fruity and floral alcohol/hop notes. The hop aspects are minorly herbal with a zest and rindy to grassy bitterness.

This is light bodied and modestly carbonated. Overall not bad but a strang sweetness verse bitterness contrast is present that breaks up it's otherwise crisp feel and leaves it slightly unbalanced in the malty spectrum.

Brought a 6 pack of this to the Cowboys @ Chargers game tailgating extravaganza to share with non-craft beer drinkers in the party.

Drank this straight out of the can, cause I didn't want to deal with the plastic. Looked yellow from what I can see.

Grassy hops on the nose. Metallic lager after notes. Not sure where this is going.

Sharp bite of grassy hops, and carbonic acid upon taking a sip. Zero malt backbone to balance up the bitterness, nor the hop flavor. This has the hop bill of a craft beer, with the malt bill of a macro lager.

Well carbonated.

Overall this beer is completely disappointing. Due to the light body and lack of malt flavors to compliment the hops and bitterness. Save your money and buy a Budweiser over this stuff, sorry to say.

Generally: I'm drinking this one cold (45 degrees) and that seems to be where it performs best. It's a handsomely clean beer, by which I mean...looking at it one has a sense of purity and wholesomeness that I can't quite describe. This beer feels good to look at.

The Pour: Slightly hazy with a lovely copper-yellow hue. An absolutely appropriate head lingers lightly and leaves lovely latticing in the glass Low ABV, so no miracles of beer are happening.

Face in the glass: Stylistically classic sour grassy notes with a hint of damp cellar and ripe bread. It's a nice thing on the nose; shifting, and increasing in complexity with the effort one puts into it.

With Regard to Taste: No shitty corn filler here. While it is NOT a classic Pilzen--principally because of the hop concentration--you can taste the Saaz hops, sans sulphur (lagered differently?) , and you have a really nice apple/citric finish that is more than happy to spend some time dancing about on your tongue. Delicious.

Abstract: This beer is better than I realized. Pale malts and Saaz hops married in a memorable melange of easy summer drinking.

Epitoma: 5.2% and straight up kick ass. Might I add that I want the f#$K out of some Chinese food with this--pepper, soy, and pork would be perfect with this guy.

Note: This is for PBR/High Life drinkers who finally admit that they have been drinking piss. No challenges for neo-pallates, tons of rewards.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours deep yellow gold with thick white foam. Powdery white. Straw/hay nose. Bready. Full bodied rich clean lemony background, very light all around. Loads of flavor for a pils; really solid.

Really good summer tailgate option.
