Poured into a snifter. Thanks, Darren.

A: Opaque gold. A white one finger head that dissipates to a foam ring. Light lacing.

S: Lemons' wheat, corn. Citrus and grains.

T: Lemony,' wheaty, sweet, with a malt backbone. Light and summery.

M: Light to medium with light carbonation.

O: A decent middle of the road lager. Nothing special. Good after a bout with yard work.

12 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 3/10/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep gold color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal balancing earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a very clean finish with zero cloying flavors; Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Helles style. Very clean and well balanced flavors of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

This is a really nice tasting lager. It has more malt flavor and body than many other lagers I have had, but it still is refreshing and smooth. The color is a deep gold with a little bit of amber. It is slightly cloudy and retains a thin white foamy head. The taste is unexpectedly nice, I liked it much better than I thought I would. It is malty with a light sweetness and very little bitterness. It has just the faintest hint of lemon zest. Great balance and smooth, smooth. An excellent summer brew from Frankenmuth Brewery. I'll be buying this one again for sure.
