look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A little darker and richer in appearance than the style tends to strive for, the color is a deep dark gold. It's thick, and it manages translucency. The head is soft, nearly but not quite pure white, with pretty good retention and some nice spotting.
The malt is sweet, maybe some white fruits flesh and honey, with an accompanying balance of light floral, leafy and grassy hops.
It comes together pretty well in the taste. It's balanced, and it's even pretty flavorful for a light lager. It does, however, have a little bit of a corn-like sweetness into the finish.
This is every bit as crisp and refreshing as the style offers. It really is a summer beer, if there is such a thing, though I'd consider it to be medium-bodied. It's got the easy drinking, the smoothness (creamy on the end, even), and the crispness that's most desirable on a hot day.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow in color with some orange highlights and moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet malts with a touch of corn and honey. Also, there is a light aroma of grassy and floral hops.

T: Upfront there are some moderate flavors of malts with some light amounts of sweetness including some hints of honey. Additionally, there are some notes of corn adjuncts contributing a bit of sweetness and some light to moderate flavors of grassy and floral hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which lingers for a while.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp and clean.

O: This is a pretty easy beer to drink and is definitely a sessionable brew - enjoyable but I would have preferred it without the hint of corn adjunct sweetness. Pretty well balanced overall though there are times through the taste that are both sweet and bitter.
