look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

pours bright yellow, typical for a european lager, though this is totally american.
midrange carbonation. has a good one finger frothy white head after it settles down.
smells grapefruity like a mild IPA.
taste similar to smell with lots of grapefruit. tastes like an IPA lager. wonderful! does it get any better than this?

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Consumed 6/22/12

Appearance: Clear gold - pours with a moderately sized, bright-white head - fades to a nice ring, leaves some spots and wisps of lacing

Smell: Grassy hops and some lager aromas - normally, I frown upon grassy smells, but it works here - herbal and spicy - touches of citrus, mostly lemon rinds - malts are pale and grainy, with a lot of sweetness

Taste: Grainy and hoppy - nicely balanced and highly drinkable - some citrus, mostly lemon - grassy, herbal, and spicy - mild to moderate bitterness - malts are grainy, bready, and light - very pale, but flavorful - some earthiness

Mouthfeel: Light to medium in body, smooth and crisp, nicely carbonated, refreshing

Overall: A unique and tasty lager

This is a classic. It's grassy, and yet I like it. It works well with the grainy malt profile and the slightly spicy lager yeast. I've had this a lot, and I plan to continue drinking it in the future.
