I don't typically enjoy this style. Or lagers in general. I guess you could call me an ale man.

But this one is fairly nice. The grass tones are a bit high and the carbonation could ease up on my tongue and mouth. But the flavor profile is consistent and hearty. I suppose that hearty aspect may be the pitfall for some, but I can appreciate it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a nonic.

This is a bright copper colored brew with a white one finger thick head that fades quickly, but leaves a nice clumpy thin layer covering the brew. Descent lacing around the sides.

Smells of biscuit-like malts, faint herbal, earthy hops.

Tastes of faint herbal hops, biscuit and mild malt. Overall a very mild, but satisfying brew. A good brew to kick back with on a hot summer day.

Miedium light, crisp, smooth and refreshing.

A nice sample of the style - nothing overpowering at all, but a joy to drink. Very crisp, clean and refreshing. I'd destroy 3 or 4 of these easily after mowing the lawn.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a straw yellow with a foamy white head.

The smell is yeasty with a little hops.

The taste is standard lager flavour with a little bit of hops.

Mouth feel was light/medium bodied with medium carbonation.

An above average lager but pretty boring.

Pours a copper color with a quickly dissipating head. Some pretty good carbonation, lots of bubbles ascending in the glass... inviting. Faint biscuity aroma. Taste is light to medium bodied, taste is bready with a touch of hops. Nice clean finish, pretty good mouthfeel. A nice, easy drinking beer with no frills. Won't knock you over with anything unique, but a nice, simple, good beer fitting at the end of a hot day.

The beer is a light coppery color with a light, foamy head. It is pretty well carbonated and has a little bit of yeast in there, so beware if you are not into that.

It smells pleasantly sweet, with a grapefruity scent, probably from Chinook hops.

It is a drier beer, with a light malty aftertaste followed by a biscuity sweet flavor. It tastes sort of like a generic German hefeweizen at first, as it has some sweetness at first, which then devolves into a neutral hoppy-malt taste that is pretty low-key.

Very drinkable, well suited for a refreshing cool one after a hot day.

A- Pours a hazy dark golden yellow with a 1 1/2 finger white head. Carbonation bubbles streaming up the glass.

S- Has a sweet smell to it. Light hops with a caramel malt character. Smells are soft. Some straw notes as well.

T- Starts off sweet malty flavors. Flavors are a blend of honey and floral. The hops come through on the finish with a slight bitterness.

M- Medium body but leaning more to the lighter side.

O- Its not a bad beer. Nothing super fancy but its a decent flavored lager.
