4.48/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a clear golden/orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Nice rings of lace left behind.
S: Lots of aromatic hops here. Fresh cut grass, citrus, lemon, lingering grapefruit. Toasted malt, crackers, and biscuit malts. A light lingering grapefruit bitterness. Excellent.
T: Just a touch less hoppy than the nose. Toasted and biscuit malts are more apparent up front. Though the citrus and grapefruit hops linger for a nice bitterness that brings everything together. Very well balanced, and excellent.
M/D: A light to medium body. Crisp and effervescent carbonation. So clean and a lingering dryness is great. So easy and enjoyable to drink. I can keep coming back to this again and again.

This is an excellent session like lager. At 5.2% ABV, it is just a bit high for a true session beer, but why nit pick? One of the better new (to me) Texas beers I have had so far this year. Highly recommended.

12oz can from a 6 pack I got at Specs Midtown (Houston TX). I'm happy to see Hops & Grain here as this has been an Austin local till now. Aggressive pour leaves a golden color with a finger of white head that fades fast and leaves a thin white line with little lacing as the glass goes down. I love the smell on this beer, right as a pop the can I get big fresh hop scent from this pale session lager. The taste is much more mild, slightly fruity, maybe a little grapefruite and brown sugar. I can see myself having multiples of this in one sitting. This is a perfect session beer, especially for the hot summertime months we have ahead of us here in Texas. I am very thankful that this is available to me now.

4.15/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A full bodied American lager. Yellow to golden with a minimal head and very little lace. Malty aroma and flavor. Biscuity, grainy, lightly toasted malt. Big body for the style with a medium plus hopped finish. Medium carbonation. Much closer to a German Pilsener than an American adjunct. Makes a great hot weather beer.
