Ok beer. A very macro beer feel. Not much hop flavor. Not that complex. Works well with pizza since it doesn’t take away from the flavor of the food. Probably won’t buy again unless I’m in some backwoods Wisconsin bar that only carrys Leinies as their craft beer (happens often).

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!
