May0211 stamped on bottle.
Poured into my nonic pint glass a crystal clear bright golden color with a loose, wavy & dense bone white settled head of 1/2". Moderate visible uprising carbonation with tiny-sized bubbles. Looks very elegant and glowing. Nice wide splotchy rings/walls of lace all the way down.
Mineral lager yeast with saltine cracker-like scents. Smells very crisp and fresh with a stoney, citrus framework.
Edgy flavors of burlap and earthy damp hops. Very dry and prickly with quickly diminishing notes of lemon rind and salty rocks.
Mouthfeel is creamy and emcompassing for such a dry and crisp lager. The ultra fine carbonation bathes the tongue in layers of playful bubbles that caress more than attack. Such a great feel. The finish is bitter/chalky with quickly ending flavor.
Drinkability is very good for a utility beer for sure.
This lager feels utterly fantastic and looks very elegant. The flavors are good, not great. I'd drink this without hesitation in a warm weather setting where I wouldn't want to 'think' about my beer experience. Although it is pretty decent and unintrusive, it still is a bit edgy and without any depth.

Review from notes
Pours into pint glass a hazy golden color with little presence of head to speak of but decent carbonation.
Smells of biscuit like barley malts with a slight scent of hops in the mix as well.
Taste/Mouthfeel a hoppy front end that mellows to a lager finish with a slight hop after taste.
Overall, I was intrigued by how this beer seemed to be a nice cross between a lager & a pale ale. A good session beer in a crowded field if Leinenkugels were priced to compete w/Molson & Labatt instead of Sierra Nevada I'd nab it more often. Decent stuff
