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

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.

On-tap 3/21/2015 at the brewpub in Providence, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains light caramelized malts, grain and lager yeast.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of lager yeast, grain and a thin malt character. Then some malt sweetness follows. The hops presence is very mild as you would expect creating a little balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: A little flavorful, goes down very easily since there isn’t much to the beer, not filling at all, mild kick, good representation of style, given the type of beer and its target demographic this is a solid option in comparison to the more popular beers in the style.

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.
