3.58/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

A- Clear shimmering golden hue, great lacing on the glass.

S- Herbal hop with a hit of dried orange peel from the Cascade hops.

T- Obvious push of Cascade hop flavor, mildly bitter with a soothing hop oil. Snappy malt palate, refreshing wheat malt flavor. Finishes with a long lingering oily hop flavor and a kiss of malt sweetness.

M- Light bodied with for that summery feel, fluffy yet crisp.

D- Use as either a thirst quencher on a hot day or a starter beer before a night out.

reviewed from notes

at first impression a very average easy drinkin pilsner, nothing special. poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. nothing to write home with about this beer, but definatly a decent one. easy drinkin and easy to enjoy. very refreshing but not very complex.

2.98/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

12 ounce brown bottle poured into my shaker glass. Appears a crystal clear golden yellow color with a finger of quickly fading off white foam. Smells and tastes of lightly toasted grains, grass, very mild earthy hops, and a touch of sweet malt. A bit thin bodied with about average carbonation for the style.
