3.46/5 rDev -4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Type: 12 oz bottle
From: Meijer in Ann Arbor
Price: ~$8 a 6-pack
Appearance: straw-yellow color. completely clear, almost watery. small half a finger of head that fades pretty quickly to a small lacing.
Smell: very nice smelling beer. bread, grainy malts and some grassy hops.
Taste: drops off a bit from the nose. sometimes i get the skunky, cheap american lager taste. other times it is much more subtle with grainy malts, a slight pepperiness, followed by slight grassy hops.
Mouthfeel: light just like it should be. the carbonation is a bit lacking to me as i would looking for something a bit more crisp and refreshing. finish slightly bitter
Overall: I like it, but i get too many skunky sips. its really a good tasting beer but sometimes it just goes down wrong. It shouldn't be spoiled as it was bottled a month ago and refrigerated at the store.

Real Time review: Drinking this right now. A lot of hype where I live about this brewery. Just poured the bottle into my trusty Old Style pint glass. Nothing mind blowing. Pours a 1" foamy head (quickly dissipating) with a typical golden lager color. Has a little bit of sweetness to it. Very heavy and distinctive aftertaste I can't pinpoint. Just finished the glass: Overall it's good, but not great.

For what it is, it’s enjoyable. This pours a clear, light straw color. Light aroma, some bready and lemony notes. Crisply flavored with a touch of breadiness and a quick finish. Makes me burp—take that for what it’s worth—but with no nasty aftereffects.
