AKA "lager of the lakes"
Pours a pretty typical color for a lager with 1" head. Kind of a straw yellow I would say.
This beer is very smooth. The hops and the malt are just exactly how I like a lager to be. This thing has a great malt flavor to it, very much like bread or a biscuit. Very refreshing. I really like this and could probably drink this all day. Highly recommend.

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.

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.
