One of my faves once you get past the German, Austrian, and Mexican lagers. As with many beers, this one is a bit better on draft - just a bit fresher tasting.
A: Always a nice golden yellow, fairly clear. It pours with a foamy head, which quickly dissipates, leaving behind some lacing.
S: Not overpowering. Just solidly beery, with a hint of sweetness, and something giving it a freshness.
T: Good. The honey comes through without being overpowering. Just a tinge of bitterness, but because of the presence of the honey, it is very well balanced. Serves well with a squeezed lemon. Taste remains palatable even after a couple pours.
M: This beer fizzes as you drink it, nice carbonation. It feels very clean, and doesn't seem to leave behind any unwanted residual flavors.
D: Pretty good, again. There is a certain fullness to this beer, but it isn't heavy by any means. I think it is just the carbonation. It is definitely a refreshing beer, and one of the better beers in this aspect, in my opinion.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: Crystal clear golden body, slowly rising bubbles. White foamy head that recedes to a film, no lacing.
Aroma: Metallic, grains, corn husk?
Taste: Cereal grain body, barely a touch of honey, and a sour finish.
Mouthfeel: Carbonated, semi-dry.
Overall: This tasted exactly like an American adjunct lager, with only a trace of anything resembling honey.
Serving type: bottle
