Presents a darker copper color with no head. Light Saaz spice to the aroma carries into the flavor pairing with a dry malt character. A mild bitterness flows throughout the lager creating an easy-drinking beer, but very light on the flavor. Good for the masses, bad for me

Serving type: on-tap

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours a pale yellow gold, topped with a one finger white head.
Bit of a grassy, grainy aroma. Very grainy.
Grainy, a bit spicy, tiny bit of lemon zest, cantalope. Mainly tastes like cereal.
Light and crisp.
There just isn't much to say about this, I know brewpubs like to have an alternative for the macro drinkers, but when you only have 5 taps why waste one on a light.

A pretty horrible excuse of a beer. Odd flavours, little to no malt body or sweetness and a weak lemony hop character.

The finish is a mouthful of grain tannins -- annoying and won't go away.
