Very light reminds me of a white wine a little bit of honey. Very little carbonation. My mom likes it so it must be palatable to must everyone.

This is THE legit lawnmower beer for me. Poured 12oz into my Spiegelau, clewr, golden, and carbonated throughout... fluffy finger of white head. Bready, clean, and slightly vegetal/grassy nose. Ridiculously light, balanced, and crisp taste. Bit of nice bitterness in there. Refreshing as hell, and really well done. This has to be the blueprint for the American Adjunct Lagers... they have a long way to catch up.

Decent Munich Helles lager. One of those beers that taste much better on draft if able.

Nose of malt, grass, corn, cereals. Taste sweet malt, straw, bready, faint hops & caramel, light bitter finish;
