A-Bright golden color...a lot of carbonation bubbles

S-Grassy aroma with some light noble hop spiciness..

T-Nice maltiness for a lager...slightly sweet with some vanilla notes...grassy hops on the finish.

M-Clean looking and clean tasting...body is about right...ample carbonation but not excessive..

O-Overall this is a quality lager a step up from the macro's but a tep down from the German's...

Poured into a pilsner glass and developed a frothy white head which laced a bit and dicipated quickly. Appearance was a light gold to straw and clear. Aroma had grainy, citrus notes with a slight sour on the back. Tasted of grain and citrus, very light. Mild aftertase, cirtus, and dry on the back. Mouthfeel had some cream notes. Not bad overall.

Champagne blonde and thin white film that's gone in a flash but trails a bit.
Fresh grain sack and lemongrass nose.
Sour, cut hay up front then big grassy noble hop bite.
Lemon rind finish and tight dry linger.
Light, crisp, thin.

It doesn't look like much, and the malts are fusty when they could be more bready, but the body and the bite are right on point. Warm weather quencher. Superior version of a macro lager.
