4.15/5  rDev +23.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

On tap into a pint

App: Pure gold with nice lace. No head, but that is probably a result of a bad pour.

Smell: Sweet and sour fruit, lemon and melon perhaps?

Taste: Strong grainy malt with a moderate spicy bitterness. Finishes absolutely clean.

Fully refreshing this summer day.

Serving type: on-tap

3.03/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

(From notes)

A - Light clear yellow color with a half finger of really foamy white head. OK curtains of lacing at first, but doesn't continue throughout sample

S - Light malty graininess; some earthy hops; really have to try hard to pick anything out here

T - Grassy hop bitterness that is very, very mild; grainy and a bit of corn husk

M - Lightish; pretty muted carbonation; a little watery

D - Just OK given the graininess and lack of zip in the taste department

Overall, not a great example of the style and certainly not a brew that I would revisit.

light and a almost transperant clear yello, the sent was suprising with great nots of citrius but the tast is lacking. a tuch sour and grainey with a lemon kiss and no hops to speak of, this one is like any crapy macro lager on the market. the novelity of being served at the empire state building is the only good thing with this one

Pours a clear gold. Nose is kind of bitter and grainy. Flavor is slightly dough like with a bitter tone. Feel is slightly thick for the liquid and normal for the bubble on the tongue. Decent, but no great shakes here. Basically a standard type of brew.

I had this one on tap at the Empire State building location, but didn't see where I could add it there. And it was a lager, but I chose light lager, if it needs to be amended, please do so. Pretty pale golden yellow in the glass. White frothy head disipated quickly, but it did leave some white spiderweb style lacing in my glass. Low citrusy aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Tastewise it's a bit malty, burst of citrus in the finish. I am reminded of a Euro lager with this one.
