From a 355 ml bottle into a nonic. Reviewed from notes dated November 7, 2013.

A-A short eggshell-colored head drops quickly to a patchy cap. The beer is golden in color with a light haze that clouds it somewhat. I see a few streams of carbonation in there.

S-The scent is pretty clean with lager-like milled grains and light to medium malt flavors. I also get some straw and a bit of toasted bread. Not bad, but a bit simple and not as inviting as some.

T-The taste tracks the smell closely with grains, toasted bread, some straw, and a pretty simple profile. I get a bit of soapy spice on the finish. Lighter in flavor.

M-The feel is on the crisp side with active carbonation and a medium to light body.

O-This is a pretty middle of the road beer. The smell and flavor are on the lighter side of things, which isn't surprising given the low ABV and the style in general. There are more intriguing session beers out there, but this one drinks pretty easy and doesn't offend.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Attractive light golden amber with a quite decent head in the snifter. Sprightly in the mouth. Faint beery aroma. More than adequate carbonation.

Tastes like a Pilsener at first sip. Just a touch of malt, though there are some roasted grain notes in the background. Interesting gummy, resiny tang. Hints of butter. Herbs in the back of the mouth. A mineral tang. Bitter finish adds a substantial note.

A very light brew. For a beer so close to the four percent mark, it provides a pleasant quaff. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.

Pours out to a limp head but with decent lacing weirdly enough. Color on the light side of style. Aroma is caramel malt, yeast and faint hops. Flavor is doughy, biscuity, buttery and malty with a hint of cheesy hops in the finish. Mouthfeel is crunchy and co2 is ok. Overall, kind of weird and not what I was expecting. Of course this sample may be past it's prime.

Pours a golden orange color with a soapy white head. Retention is good, definitely has staying power. Smells like yeast and bread, with a mild tea like hop aroma. In the flavor, mild earthy hop, a bit of lemon, and crackery malt notes. Kind of like an English pale ale, but a lager, as there is a bit of toffee behind the stewed hop flavor. Just a hint of butterscotch. Bitterness is mild but with good balance. Medium bodied with a yeast slickness. Overall, decent brew, not really amber, but good.
