3.01/5  rDev +2.4%

This beer is a pale gold that has some brightness, and it has absolute clarity in its body. It grows more of a film than a head but a thick one, and that recedes to a wisp and some edging that does manage light spotting.
It's somewhat vegetal but not sloppily so with grains that, while prominent, don't domineer or go that oddly astringent direction that some beers can take. There's a bit of bright, fairly sweet citrus and a kiss of something floral. All in all, for a style that certainly seems like a weaker one, this holds down as average.
The body is light and goes semi-dry only toward the finish. It's quite crisp all the way, and more than moderately clean. It's got a bit of smoothness to it as well. Alcohol surprises with some unexpected heat partway through.

2.61/5  rDev -11.2%

DATE TASTED: December 1, 2013... GLASSWARE: standard pilsner...OCCASION: Christmas tree-trimming and decorating... APPEARANCE: clear as crystal golden body; thin, filmy, off-white head; steady effervescence; thick, screening lacing is surprisingly attractive... AROMA: malty base; some bubblegum and dough--not really articulated... PALATE: a bit creamy; crisp and clear--surprisingly smooth...TASTE: woody aftertaste follows a swift, slightly metallically hopped profile; as macro lagers go, inoffensive...OVERALL: a good compliment for the pita chips I'm eating now--palate-cleansing and soft...
