Pours a clear golden effervescent body with a frothy white head resting nicely on top. Greet the nose with the slightly sweet note of cereal grain and biscuit. Earthy and herbal hop notes make themselves present as well.
A nicely balanced, clean and crisp lager on the palate with a bready malt flavor and a floral hop note coming along as well. A light touch of bitterness before it goes down oh so smooth. Medium-bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, an excellent go-to beer that shows that yellow and fizzy pale lagers CAN be good!

Cool looking can compliments of another6pack. Thanks, Trent for this and the OTHER 17 beers you sent me.
I didn't chill the can long enough as the pour brought a 3 finger head of foam but no worries, I'm a patient guy.
I now see a light golden coloured brew that now has a 1 finger HOF sitting on top. The foam shrinkage left some lacing.
It smells really toasty, a bit grainy, with a light nondescript bitterness.
The taste is very nice. A good toasted malt flavour backed up by grain and a pleasant citrus hop kick that keeps that toast from being TOO toasty. Yes siree, this is an easy drinker.
Light bodied, goodly amount of carbonation.
Wow, that can went quickly. Proof positive, that I dig it.

Poured into a snifter.
A: Clear, golden with a white half finger head with bubbles in its wake. Light lacing.
S: Lemons and corn with a malty backbone.
T: Solid. Grainy, malty, tangy.
M: Medium with medium carbonation. Very textured on the tongue. The mouthfeel is what sells it. The fullness takes it above just an average lager.
O: A good and sessionable lager, fine for summer cookouts. Everyone will like this one.
