Taste is grass, light hops, and honey. This beer is incredibly clean and hits the spot on a hot day. Super sessionable. This is a new favorite in the style.

Clean, drinkable lager with a grapefruit rind and spice hop character and smooth bready malt character. Goes down easy when cold, and richly flavored when it warms up. I'd buy a case of this. You probably should too.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell of malts, sweet, grassy. Taste is mild, some malts, grains and grassiness, not a lot of flavor. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Great Raft Southern Drawl has a thick, froathy, white head, and a hazy, somewhat bubbly, straw appearance, with heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweetness (white or cream cheese cake icing), white bread, and grass. Taste is of those elements with barley malt and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and quite slick. Great Raft Southern Drawl finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

A: poured into a pilsner glass to a glass of mostly head. what is there is a pale straw color that's a little hazy with active carbonation but minimal lacing
S: smell is grainy with some lemon zest
T: taste is barely there. slight maltyness with some slight citrus from the hops and a whole lot of wateryness. swallow is a little vegetal, grain and slight residual bitterness along with some mineraly flavors
M: light in body with active carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: decent but it has some flaws. It's kinda like they were trying for bud light and missed the mark. I wouldn't seek this out as NB Shift is the same style and a much better beer.

This beer is such a crushable afterwork lager. Def a 6 pack at a time type of beer.

Decent at first, but I drank it on the beach and can't say it was very refreshing, got hard to drink despite its slogan
