Notes/Commercial Description:
Pure and crisp this is a beer with nothing to hide. Wisconsin two-row barley malt ensures a mellow and smooth body. We imported Noble Hop varieties from Germany and the Czech Republic to ensure a fine mature aroma with no coarse bitterness.

3.73/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours ith a slight cap of anemic, soapy foam, which dissapates in seconds to nothing. Visable, strong carbonation. Beautiful pale color. Would have rated higher if the head retention were better.
Aroma: Clean maltiness. Smells delicious.
Taste: More pure, clean grain flavor, with a slight backbone of noble hops. Very refreshing.
Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation. Dances over the tongue in a refreshing, spritzy way.
Overall: Wow, I usually avoid this style, but I'm glad I tried this one. Ultimately, it tastes like a homebrewer brewed a better macro lager without rice solids. I like.

Pours clear straw yellow to bright, light golden. The fluffy white head descends to a thin cover and leaves a thin sheet of lacing on the glass.

The smell is inoffensive. It is clean. Some sweet grain.

The taste is clean and crisp. Sweet grain is enough to balance most of the sweetness without adding much in the way of flavor. This light-bodied brew has a refreshing, clean semi-dry finish.

A basic American pale ale done well. A clean, refreshing lager is not always the easiest style to find from a brewery that is not a macro. It is bland, but refreshing and lacks any real flaws/detractors. Just an easy-drinking lager.
