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.

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.
