Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass.
A – Dark yellow/light gold, with just the slightest bit of haze. Airy one-finger head that faded quickly. Minimal clumpy lacing.
S – Very muted aroma; some slight citrus notes.
T – Tastes a lot better than it smells. Notes of citrus and lemongrass. Earthy malts brings some balance, and there is also some residual honey sweetness. Floral hops become present toward the finish but the flavor is subdued. Finishes somewhat dry and slightly sour, a little reminiscent of dish soap. Not entirely unpleasant, but I found it a little strange.
M – Medium bodied. Prickly carbonation. Crisp. Not much else to say here.
O – A pretty much unremarkable lager from SA. Not great, not terrible. Somewhat refreshing, but nothing I would ever buy again. On a side note, I remember SA's old "Spring Ale" tasting a lot like this, minus the dish soap.
