A very smooth, tasty, lager. Even better on draught at the lager house.

Poured into a flute.

3.0 A: Light straw color and crystal clear. Two fingers of soapy head that falls quickly, even in a flute. Not really any lacing going on.

4.5 S: The aroma is quite enjoyable. Lots of sweetness, but not cloying at all. Grainy and a touch of straw. Simple, yet elegant. Hops are minimal.

4.0 T: Again, sweet yet not cloying. Earthy, a bit grainy but much less than in the smell. A bit doughy as well. Hops are minimal again and it works well.

4.5 M: Medium body. Good carbonation and creamy. Everything checks out here.

5.0 D: Pretty good beer. I usually hate the style, but this one is a winner.

Got this one via a trade with brew3crew

A: Pours a perfectly clear medium golden color with a 1/2 layer of white head which quickly receeds to a thin topping. Even after sitting in the glass for a few minutes there is still ample carbonation rising, reminds me a little of champagne bubbles

S: The aroma are subtle, with hints of sweet tropical fruit (pineapple, mango), oranges, and a light bread/yeast backing.

T: The flavor is very clean with citrus and a light pepper flavor at first. The finish is dry with a lingering taste of bread dough

M: Very pleasing, with a medium light body and plenty of carbonation.

D: I could easily see going through a 6-pack of this on a hot day.

12oz. brown bottle from the sampler pack, purchased at Kroger's in Finneytown, poured into a pint.

A: Pours a light amber or toasted straw color, good visibility. 1 finger of white head forms and holds for a bit. Some lacing here and there.

S: Light floral and grassy hops with a prick of spice. Grainy and lightly toasted malts.

T/M: More of the grainy and lightly toasted malts with a touch of added sweetness. The hops are a bit softer but still have that earthy and grassy taste. From the middle and through the end, it tightens up into a crisp, dry finish with a touch of lasting bitterness. Body is medium-light with decent carbonation.

D: Tasty enough and very sessionable. Wouldn't mind knocking a few more of these back after a long day in the sun. Their website lists this as 5.2% ABV

Original Lager pours a golden color, with lots of carbonation, and a nice size head, looks refreshing. There is a nice strong pale aroma, very dry, but strong. The taste is a bit watery and light at first, then finishes with a strong dry flavor on the palette. Easy to drink, and enjoyable. Overall this one took me by surprise, the first sip could be better, but the beer gets better the more you drink.
