Brilliant clarity, nice white head. Not familiar with the style. Fairly grainy aroma, flavor is grainy and bready, refreshing, with a minerally, clean finish. Nothing spectacular, but would be a great session beer in a hot day. Crisp, dry finish, with a touch of earthy hop.

Poured into pint glass.

Appearance: creamy white head build up. Dissipated to a quarter inch of thick frothy build. Color is a mix of hay and orange.

Smell: yeasty and crackery with a subtle sweet malt smell. Aromas are faint yet pleasant.

Taste: bready and yeasty with a nice touch of malt backbone. The sweetness is delicate and hangs around throughout the entire tasting. Flavors are not intense so it keeps you wanting more. This beer is very balanced, the sweetness and the yeast compliment each other.

Mouthfeel: light bodied and smooth and high carbonation.

Overall: this beer is fantastic. I love it, there are no flaws and there is nothing aggressive. It's perfect for me on hot days.

Cracked open after a hot bike ride home from the office. The aroma is a simple doughy barley with a hint of toast and caramel and the slightest earthy mineral touch that carries over into the flavor with the malts. The body is smooth and balanced with a touch of sweetness. It reminds me more of a low-hop Czech lager, or a lighter Dortmund Export lager than a kellerbier, but it's a damn fine beer to have at the end of the day. I'd drink more if I had one, but I don't get to Sconie that often.
