For an American Made Lager Beer, this is Awesome, Delicious, its LAGER and if you know what this means, you know its quality amber type of beer and it tastes great, you wont even feel the 5% alcohol inside, its that good, i love it, and living in Northwest this is one of our most popular beer. love it.

My rating may seem a bit over-the-top, but I've decided that, in comparison with most of the commercially produced American pilsner beers, this one is quite attractive. Head and shoulders better than a typical Pudsqueezer, Millers, etc. My taste for American pilsners has been somewhat warped by the Czech, Pislner Urquel which is a magnificent example of what a commercial pilsner can be. Still, this beer is completely pleasant, easily drinkable (even for a novice) fishin' beer. AND in Utah at the liquor store it is less expensive than average (almost a buck a bottle cheaper than Pilsner Urquel).

Appearance: pours a 2+" sudsy white head that recedes quickly with mild lacing. Color is a clear straw with moderate carbonation present.
Aroma: mild aroma of lightly toasted grain and clean water
Mouthfeel: light and crisp with a mostly dry finish
Flavor: sweet barley malts (white bread) combined with a healthy hop bitterness in the middle and finish.
Overall: This is a nicely balanced and decent lager. It is more akin to Euro-style lagers than American macros in flavor.
