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

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a pilsner glass

Pours a light copper, with a 1/4 inch fluffy white head, lots of visible champagne like carbonation. A slight funk to the front of the nose, followed by a nice toasted malt note, a slight lemon with a faint bittering hop on the finish. Toasted malt, slight carbonation middle of the mouth, metallic lemon flavor mid sip, clean soapy finish. Light on the mouthfeel, fizzy, funky, quenching. Overall; I dunno, it's a lager! Boring, light, it's not bad, it's not good, it does however pair amazingly well with chicken wings, cheers!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle at fridge temp. no bottled on date.

a copper golden color with just a slight haze. a small white head that settles to some thin patchy foam that stays awhile. decent webby lace. lots of carbonation bubbles rushing to the top.

mineraly lager yeast meets toasted grain with very light hints of caramel and honey.

light, easy flavors. mineral like lager yeast, toasted grains with hints of butter and caramel. finishes clean with just a light hit of citrus. just barely enough bitterness to balance out the sweetness.

light body, slightly watery. lots of carbonation.

for what it is, its not terrible. its done pretty well for the style actually. an easy drinking session beer that any beer drinker could get behind, but it leaves the beer geek wanting more... much more.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a deep golden color with a medium white head of large carbonation bubbles. The head faded over time to give very little lacing.

Smell – Sweet caramel is the most potent and is mixed with a bit of corn aroma.

Taste – The taste matched the smell quite well. There is a caramel taste mixed with a corn and bready malt backbone. The flavor is quite one-dimensional and remains relatively consistent throughout the taste.

Mouthfeel – Very standard lager mouthfeel. A bit below average in terms of body with a slightly higher then normal carbonation level.

Overall –A very standard lager.

A tad bit hazy, with a subtler smell than expected. A little fruitier than expected (blueberry?), but only seemed to be pronounced for the first one or two sips. After the initial couple sips, it felt like a pretty typical German Lager. Nothing to write home about, but certainly not going to offend anyone.
