3.75/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Good looking beer with a perfect clarity, showing off a straw yellow and tons of bubbles floating from the bottom to the surface. A 1.5 finger white foamy head is on top, resembling the foam of a cappucino as it sticks around for a long time. Infrequent patchy lacing sticks to the glass. There is a nice citrusy crispness to the aroma, chock full of lemon and a bit of grapefruit. Lots of lemon rind zest behind the sourish lemon scent. Even a touch of clove maybe? I may be imagining that, but I am picking up on some sort of spice. Smells like it will be refreshing, regardless.

The taste is still full of lemon and citrus, with grapefruit showing up in the back end of the palate. The malt bill is not all that exciting, giving a light to medium body. The lemon rind zestiness is definitely present still, giving a bit of depth and character a style that doesn't go too much for that. In the back, grapefruity hops rear their head with a pleasant and much needed bitterness to balance out the lighter body a little bit. They do a pretty good job of giving this beer some excitement amongst the refreshment, albeit just a touch. Not as crisp in the mouthfeel as the aroma put on as it has a nice smooth lager feel to it, but with the prickle of hops in the back end to even it out. A touch watery even so. It leaves a nice lingering grapefruity hop aftertaste that is pleasantly understated.

Overall nothing crazy here, but its definitely an easy drinker and one to enjoy on a hot summer day. Could be a bit crisper and exciting, maybe a touch more carbonation on the tongue? Either way, I'd say give it a try if you're in the mood for a decent spring or summer beer.

3.16/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A:Poured into a Shaker pint glass. It pretty much looked like what it purported to be - a plea lager. Yellow with a touch of amber. There was a minimal head that dissipated quickly. There was a lot less carbonation than I am used to seeing.

S: Light malt.

T: More taste than an AAL but this one won't lure me away from SA Boston Lager.Yes, a different style but I much prefer the, to me, bigger taste of SABL.

M: Pretty light due to the low level of carbonation.

O: I'm glad I tried it as part of a mix six but this is one I won't be getting again.

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

Pours an almost clear gold with a nice head. Lacing and retention are good. Light nose of floral, but not quite sweet, hops over biscuit. Light medium body with slightly smooth texture. Normal carbonation with a touch of effervescence on the finish. Laid back flavor profile of floral hops over a light bitterness. On the finish, a bit of sweet biscuit is noted. A very good lager.
