Clean, with a bitter aftertaste. Clean, yellow, didn't love the flavor.

Very faint yellow pour, good clarity, solid brightness, 1/2" white head. Aroma was strong lager yeast but without the skunking that I've simply come to enjoy in Euro style pilsners.

For being a noble hopped lightish lager, this really drops a bunch into flavor territory. Its a worthy beer in a lot of situations whether that be session drinking, bottle share palate cleansers, hot weather, sporting events etc. . .

Well done and adheres to tradition and style guidelines.

Poured from tap into pilsner glass, absolutely beautiful beer. Still releasing bubbles from the bottom. Poured with minimal head, nice pool hanging out on top. Clear straw yellow to look at. Smells of malt, but mainly grassy hops. Taste like it smells, love this beer, shiner needs to steal this recipe and start distributing this in Texas. Great finish, would be a great summer pounder

This bottle may have been a little older, but I just could not wrap my head around anything that was going on with this one. Would not want to try it again.

On-tap at Beer 39, San Francisco, CA

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of grassy hops, along with hints of bready pilsener malts. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer goes down rather easily and has nice aromas and flavors of grassy hops, the smell of which is a little stronger compared to the taste.
