This poured like a typical lager light yellow and fizzy with a small white head.

The smell is grains and very light hops.

The taste is Very light and grainy with extremely light hops.

The mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation.

Overall better than most American lager but nothing that great.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Gold but in all honesty with a serious yellow citurs tone. Medium bubbles on the body creating a white head that is maybe 1/10".

Smell: A bland scent honestly can't quite break it. Light hops nothing different than your plain old other lager.

Taste: A light lemon feel, that breathes bitter sweet in the mouth. Not heavy in flavor but enough to satisfy the summer.

Mouth: Medium with a slight heavy body feel. You know what, it is that smooth.

Overall: Not a bad brew, very easy to drink. I like it enough that it will be bought again. Enjoy yourself and drink up, Salud!

This poured out as a very pale looking yellow color. It has a white fizzy head on top. The a very minimal lacing and moderate retention. The smell of the beer is grainy with a very subtle hop aroma. The taste is light, grainy, malty, slightly spicy. The mouthfeel of the beer is light bodied, decent carbonation, a little watery though. Overall this beer is very drinkable, it's lighter than most lagers. It's not bad.

Me and my boy D-Kwon was gonna go to this party by the beach. I told his ass to get a variety pack and he got the local kind. I was hype to have the seasonal but he gave me the longboard first. I took like three sips and was convinced it wuz a betta lager than most. Ya'll trippin if you say its bland. Its a lager and it crisp as a mofo, plus it got that hop finish.
