As far as light lagers go, this one is better than most. It pours a honey golden color with a nice head and great sticky lace.

Very mild aromas--the greatest smell for me is similar to perfume. The flavor of this beer is very dry--no malt sugars that I can detect. The hop is present but muted. For an adjunct beer, this one is surprisingly full-bodied. The carbonation is on the low side. The aftertaste is slightly sour, like milk after swallowing.

As I said before, this is better than most American watered down lagers. that said, it's still non-descript other than the tartness.

My second beer at the breweries ESB location on 18th Jan 2013.

Looked like a lager/pilsner: tasted like a lager/pilsner.

Bright, clean and clear body of golden liquid, on top a thin snow white head.

No smell worthy of mention: gets an average score like most lagers.

Dry more than sweet, grainy more than hoppy.

Nothing wrong with it: but could have been any number of lagers/pilsners from anywhwere in the world.

I liked this beer I feel this is a good everyday drinking beer and I could drink very refreshing. I had on tap tasted great nice and smooth if it was bottled I would have taken it home with me.

I had this beer under a different name at another bar in NYC same consistent taste I liked

On-tap at Heartland Brewery and Chophouse (Times Square), New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down a bit but never completely faded away.
S: Faint aromas of corn and honey are present in the nose.
T: The taste has bits of sweetness and hints of honey along with a faint amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is not a bad beer for the style and I was happy I tried it. I would have no problem drinking several of these in succession. The taste does not deteriorate as the beer warms up.

Had this beer at the Radio City location. Served as part of the flight. IN a small sample glass, cool.

Pours an orange yellow body with a white head. Clean lager yeast smell. Tangy flavor with a nice hop cleaning flavor. Light mouthfeel, good carbonation.

Not a bad beer. I would have this again.
