Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: Crystal clear straw yellow body. Fizzy white head that doesn't retain much foam but lines of decent lacing hang around.

Aroma: A clean grain and malt body with just a touch of dried grass.

Taste: Some slightly metallic sourness in front followed by a clean grain body.

Mouthfeel: Pretty light.

Overall: A completely refreshing, tasty lager. Probably wouldn't choose this over a cheapest macro though due to the price.

(bottling date: Jun 16 2014 - poured into a fluted goblet)

A: pale, faded yellow liquid... crystal-clear... tall, off-white, oily-looking foam crops up on the pour... a bit rocky and mashed-potato in appearance... thin shots of lace

S: classic, familiar sulfury aroma of adjunct lagers - I mean, it's dead on - did they use a Bud or Miller yeast on this?... lightly floral with a faint hint of pilsner malt... wet sidewalk... as it warms, it takes on a more fresh-baked bread quality

T: brief sweet corn note up front, but almost immediately the flavors following that indicate that this is an all-malt, Euro-style pale lager - a touch heftier on the malt and its balance than said lagers... strange note of pre-ground black pepper in the finish... vaguely doughy malt and a semi-firm, mineral hop bite lingers in the aftertaste

M: dancing around medium-bodied, marginally rigid edges, but with a fairly dry, mildly parching finish

O: lowering the gluten ppm or not, they made a fine lager here... can't say if the extra malt heft will turn off those who prefer their lagers to taste damn near like water, but the rest of it's close enough!... a "light" lager that drinks more like an import German helles?...
