3.25/5 rDev +2.2%
Appearance - Pours 2 fingers of bright white foam, body is a translucent golden amber, leaves nice light whites laces after each sip.
Smell - Light grains, light grassy hops, light minerals, very light citrus zest.
Taste - Very refreshing, and exactly like the nose - slightly cooked grains, hint of white breadcrust, very light grassy hops, light malt sweetness to balance, hints of bitter citrus zest, and a good dose of minerals throughout.
Mouthfeel - Lighter side of medium, a very smooth mouthfeel, bitter enough to keep you sipping, finishes fairly clean with traces of cut grass, light bread crust, and prominent minerals.
Overall - I like this beer actually, a great lawn-mower beer, and one that I could enjoy all afternoon in a backyard bbq. Much better than the macros imho. Is there better, sure - but this is a decent dry lager with a touch of hops, cheap, and sessionable at 5.5%.

bought this just because it was cheap! lol
a poured from the 12 oz bottle into my new belgium goblet:
A really light yellow - full finger of thich clamshell white head settles to a thin film with just a bit of lacing. ultra clarity.
s a mix of that macro metallic with some decent hops
t not bad, really not bad, bit of a hoppy bite
m lite on the body, also kinda - oily? in a way
d not too good really, chug en down anyway!
