3.8/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Crystal clear yellow with decent carbonation and good foam.

Smell: Fresh lemon and more than a hint of pine. Very wintery for a light lager.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Tastes similar to the smell. Great combination of lemon and pine. Mouthfeel starts rather clean, but leaves a sticky residue in the finish.

Overall: A pretty good light lager. Hits the right flavors of a pilsner, but the slightly malty mouthfeel feels like a pale lager.

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer had a thin film of white foam that faded to a ring quickly. The body was a pale yellow with a gentle carbonation of tiny bubbles.

S- The smell of noble bitter hops was strong with a dry sulfur note.

T- This beer has a big field corn note that has notes of pale malt and sulfur with a bitter noble hops flavor blended with a dry carbonic acid bite in the finish.

M- This beer had a medium-light mouthfeel

D- This might be an Imperial adjunct lager. There was a big noble hop bitterness with a big sulfur bite and a big corn note. It had all the flavors I don't care for in BMC but they were crisper and bigger than most.

On tap into a pint glass

A - Clear golden in color with a moderately thin white head that dissipates moderately quickly. Moderate carbonation but nothing over the top. 4/5

S - White bread, light malt, grassy hops, and a butteriness. Maybe some biscuit as well. 3.75/5

T - Taste follows the nose very closely. Light caramel sweetness and maybe a little corn. Very little bitterness. Flavor does not linger at all. 3.75/5

M - Not crazily carbonated. Almost creamy. Smooth. Disappears rather quickly from the palate. 3.75/5

O - Good helles offering that is especially good following a 6 mile run. Not complicated, just straight and simple. 3.75/5

Pours a light golden straw with a white head that is not very persistant. Strong beading does not provide a cap. Light body lower bitterness but very crisp and clean and much more flavor and hops than most macro brews. The high CO2 level teams with a citrus acidic flavor and makes this pair well with heavy foods as well a good candidate for a session.

On tap at Emmett's Downers Grove

A: Dark golden color, not quite amber, but richer than the macro fizzy water. No head.

S: No aroma that I could detect

T: My expectations were VERY low on this one and I was very surprised that for this type, had lots of flavor. Gentle malt, no hoppiness but that was fine for me.

M: Average. Not watery.

D: Definitely could pound down a growler on a hot summer day.

Would recommend this for those macro drinkers who generally won't try craft brews and need that light beer substitute when visiting Emmetts.
