From notes.

Appearance: Clean straw hue with visible effervescence and a thin bubbly white head.

Aroma: Grainy with a hint of adjuncts. A slight malt or hop sweetness.

Taste: Light with some run of the mill lager malt bill. No hop presence. Crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Below medium in body with lots of carbonation. Highly drinkable.

Final Thoughts: Your basic macro lager but with that small town flair. Would I drink it again? Oddly enough, yes. But I never seek it out.

Serving type: bottle

This was actually a very good beer in my opinion. The aromas of honey when you open the bottle were very noticeable. The taste of this was also very good and will continue to drink this beer when I am able to do so. This is very popular in my area as well.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I remember this as one of my very first beers many moons ago. Let's see how things go today: It pours a clear golden-straw topped by a finger of short-lived off-white foam. The nose comprises lightly-buttered biscuit, light wheat, and the lightest kiss of dried honey (which, admittedly, might just be there due to advertising getting the better of me). The taste brings in more of the same, with less of a buttery quality and more of a sweet one. It helps, but it doesn't elevate matters too far. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, an okay beer at best, nothing close to special, but strangely drinkable enough...
