Pours pale hazy golden into a pint glass under a quarter inch of white head that quickly dissipates to a foam ring. Smell is yeasty and golden wheat, with some hops bitterness.

Honey malts quickly bitter, the noble hops quickly drying the palate and dissipating. Quick finish.

Light bodied and easy to drink. Should have had this around over the summer. Important: none of the chemical aftertaste of the big commercial lagers or of the really cheap versions.

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

A-Clear yellow, some carbonation and one finger head.

S-Toast, wheat, grass, not getting much, if any, of the caramel malt.

T-Toast and wheat. Here the caramel comes through more. Mild grass and no bitterness.

M-Light, semi dry and semi crisp finish.

O-When cold the beer is enjoyably but as it warms it takes a turn for the worse.

Serving type: can

$ 2.19/12 oz can at Vintage Estate
Swirl by 08/27/14 can at 40 degrees into a snifter
Aroma – very faint aroma of malt and flowers
Head – average (5 cm), white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 8 mm island
Lacing OK – small islands and reefs of small bubbles
Body light yellow, clear
Flavor very delicate, some malt; no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl
Palate light, watery, soft carbonation

To me, this seems to have little flavor. The appearance is good although the lacing could be better. Both the aroma and flavor are very light and delicate; to my overloaded IPA-favoring taste buds there are hardly any of either.

3.23/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Out of the can, the beer has a crisp lager flavor, a hint of grassiness, a light biscuity malt, and then a German herbal hop presence. It dries off leaving a bit of bitterness from the hops.

The body on this is decently light.

The general, the beer is quite lacking in flavor and malt.

Easy drinking, but actually quite disappointing.
