4/5  rDev +24.6%

A-Nice golden color...perfect head

S-Nice malty bready aroma

T-Bready maltiness in front....just a hint of lemony hop on the finish but definitely a malt forward laGER.

M-A nice weight to this....not thin, spritzy and watery at all....more of a firm rounded body but not too big.

O-I much prefer this to Supper Club. This has a nice bready maltiness that strikes me as a helles lager type of beer. I'd recommend this as a great summer BBQ beer or just a great beer any time you want a nice fresh lager with flavor.

Appearance - Nice golden color. Clear and bubbly. Short white head with good retention.

Smell - Light pale malt. Sweet and bready. A little lemon.

Taste - Light sweet pale malt. A little lemony sourness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium-light. Crisp and effervescent.

Overall - More flavor than an average macrobrew, but not by much. Mostly it's just inoffensive.

Pours clear deep golden yellow with a thin head that leaves spotted lacing.

The smell is clean with a hint of pale malt grain and a subtle hint of lemon.

The taste is also clean, with a kiss of honey sweetness with a mild, refreshing hop touch in the crisp, dry finish.

It has a smooth, refreshing, light body.

This is an easy-drinking, inoffensive, light pale lager. It is what it is intended to be and does a nice job at it! A solid choice for a light, refreshing brew. It could be good for something simple and refreshing year-round!

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I wish I had a lake house somewhere (so long as it doesn't have some spooky timeline-derailing mailbox out front)... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear pale-ish brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet biscuit, light white bread, and lemon-flavored Pez. The taste brings in more of the same, with the breads taking a back seat to the lemon, which, unfortunately, now more closely resembles stale lemon rinds than Pez pieces. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly-watery feel. Overall, were it not for that funky lemon bit, this might have been a decent little thirst-quencher, but instead it just makes me sad.
