3.76/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
bottle into pint glass
appearance: very clear piss yellow, looks like an american macro, foamy white head
smell: corn, bready notes, rye
taste: typical corn macro lager taste but with some more complexities and spices that would not be found in a macro lager. Follows the nose with a lot of breadiness and some english malts. This is highly drinkable, very smooth and light.
mouthfeel: average carbonation, very light feel
overall: If you live in Michigan, and drink shitty lagers, you are an idiot. Why buy Bud or Coors when you can get this, for cheap... what a lager is supposed to taste like, just enough flavor to be enjoyable.

A- Fairly clear golden yellow pour from the 12oz bottle to a chalice. A puffy frothy white cap builds to two fingers before falling to a thick ring. Decent head retention. Lacing starts with sheets and webs that drizzle down the glass.
S- Somewhat simple but still plenty of aromatic strength. Light cracked cereal grains with some apple light fruit notes, spiciness, citrus and bready yeast.
T- Once again plays on the side of simplicity but delivers a clean, flavorful lager beer. Overall the beer has a strong fruity feel of both light apple and pear hints as well as some citrus zest. Other hints of bread, cracked pilsner and cereal grains and spicy hops.
MF- Light and crisp overall body with a foamy texture. It really puffs up with agitation to the moderately high carbonation. Tiny bitterness.
I think this is a very underrated lager. It doesnt blow me away but it is very clean and the flavors employed balance out very smoothly. This is what summer brews should be like.

3.58/5 rDev -1.1%

Poured on tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, crystal clear, straw gold coloring, with a sparse filmy white surface coat. Nose of toasted grains, subtle berry sweetness, and floral hops. Flavors are fruit and floral forward, with a tangy caramel nackbone, some hops resin, and subtle pine notes. Fruitier than I would have expected. Smooth, light bodied, with a tangy, sweet, berry fruit aftertaste. Smooth, slick finish.
Serving type: on-tap
