Poured from a 500ml bottle into a straight pint glass.

Pours a clear golden colour with a short lived head.

Smells of light malts and yeast.

Tastes quite sharp with a twang of yeast and some wholesome bready malts, and a fruity/bitter taste on the finish.

Overall a pretty good beer, with perhaps too much yeast taste.

Poured into a Weizen glass from a 500 ml bottle.

Clear, pale color. Head is large and foamy and stays pretty long, leaving nice lacing.
Aroma is dominated by a very bready smell. Also some malt.
Taste is also very bready.
Body feels light to medium with good carbonation.

Overall this beer is quite interesting with it's dominant bready character.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Long-necked 11.2 oz bottle. Dropped into a pint glass.Very clear. Golden, light-colored body. Decent head settles into a collar.

Smells like a bag of fresh cut dry grass and a little lemon. More lemon as it warms.Taste is citric and gently hoppy like the aroma but a little more earthy. Finishes sweet. At 5.5%, this beer is ridiculously crushable. Mildly lemony, mildly hoppy.

O: This lager is money, and, unfortunately, it’s such an enjoyable style that good breweries in the USA don’t usually make. Most beer drinkers would love one of these at one point or another.
