24 oz. can poured into lager glass.

A - Golden straw. Slight head with spotty lacing.

S - Light malt and apples.

T - Sweet corn, sweet malt, mild hops, and apple.

M - Medium, some creaminess.

O - This is one of the best macros I've ever had. Never tasted fruit in a macro before this. It's not strong, but that hint of apples was highly enjoyable. Very nice brew. Thanks, Genny!

Appearance -- about a 2" white head that quickly disappears. Little lacing, lots of carbonation. Color is slightly darker than macro lagers.

Aroma -- pleasant grain/malt aroma with a bit of hop spice

Mouthfeel -- watery, carbonation feels a bit like champagne, slightly sticky, dry finish. Pleasantly sweet.

Flavor -- Pleasantly sweet with a nice hop balance near the end of the taste.

Overall -- a great beer for the price range.

A quality weekend beer used for general partying or getting a little weird. Its for everyone but definitely worth trying.

Comes in a 30 pack | drinkable | good-looking can | outstanding backyard beer | great paired with Cornhole and grilled salmon | the overall experience is greater than the sum of its constituent parts

First review of a beer! What can I say? I don't know much about reviewing but I know I like this beer. Not very ale like; tastes more like a lager or like a red label with a hint of ale.

Goes down easy now; I used to not like it but its grown on me. Tastes creamy. That's all I got. Good beer.
