On the smell I get that sweet grainy pilsner smell with herbal spicy grassy hops. The taste is just like this with a bit of spicy hop in the beginning with the sweet grainy pilsner malt taste following and then ending with the dryness from the yeast and hops. It has a pretty nice lingering bitterness for only 17 IBUs I think it is. It definitely tastes like more. The hop taste and bitterness is very herbal, dry and grassy tasting. I also get a bit of a lemony taste in there as well.

I like how the dryness from the hops the sweet grainy malt taste and yeast taste perfectly combine together for a really good tasting lighter beer. This is a fantastic "lawnmower beer" and has all the right qualities of a session beer. Actually one of the tastiest well rounded lighter beers I've had. This is like Magic Hat's twist on an American Adjunct yet it has no adjuncts and has a better yeast, hop and malt taste over one any day.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A light hazy yellow/gold. Very thin off white head that quickly disappears.

Smell: Faint smell of wheat, grains, bread.

Taste: Very sweet, some wheat flavor.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated and fairly light. Easy to drink.

Overall: At first, I did not like to sweet flavor, but it grew on me a lot. I find it very drinkable and a nice beer.

Serving type: bottle
