A - Darker straw color than most lagers, bright head that stays for a minute, lots of bubbles, some lacing.

S - slight malt and fresh hop, mmm.

T - Great, some slightly floral hops with a malt backbone and a bit of a yeasty flavor in there too. Really delicious beer, everything in the right balance.

M - Moderate carbonation, nice and refreshing.

O - Tastes really good and hits the spot. Nothing overly complex, but doesn't need to be.

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with almost no head. Very thin and frothy. Has thin lacing.

Smell - Sweet with bready and pale malts, along with corn and grains.

Taste - Pale malts, very sweet, corny, grains, grassy, and bready.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with high carbonation. Very crisp.

Overall - This is a very good lager. It's interesting to try an organic beer. It's very refreshing and would be great on a summer day.

A: 1.5 finger head with nice lacing on a clear bright golden body.

S: full on the nose for the style with nice almost noble hop note and musty pale malts.

T: again full for flavored for the genre with grain, pale malts, slight hop bitterness and noble hop like note.

M: light body and high carbonation.

Overall: a full flavored and aromaed beer for the genre which almost diverts from the genre.

Poured in a glass mug. Pours clear straw yellow with a large white head and lots of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The head dissipates slowly. There isn't much in the way of lacing left on the side of the glass. The beer has that nice, crisp clean lager smell. There are pale malts with some hops in the aroma. There are flavors of cracker and some hops. It's mildly bready. The body is light with abundant carbonation. The finish is crisp and dry. The drinkability is high. Overall, this is a very good refreshing beer. If you're looking for a different Euro lager, you can't go wrong with this one.

Always kind of forget about this brewery because it is always kept cold at my local store. Founds some 12oz bottles I never noticed.

A- Pint glass receives a very pale light straw yellow lager. A one-finger white head forms and had decent retention. Foamy ring and some cloudy patches remain atop the beer. Lace is not happening besides a few tiny spots.

S- Pretty much standard pale Euro lager here. Some yeast bread, buttery, light cracker malt sweets and Euro hops.

T- Light but flavorful. Opens up with light fruit and cracker caramel malt. A yeast bread note rounds it out along with hints of hops (herbal, floral, spicy grassy Euro), a buttery quality, nutty malt and apple/white grape for the fruit character.

MF- Creamy light-end body with moderately high carbonation providing only a bit of a singe to the palate. Slight bittersweet finish.

A solid light lager, not something I have said a ton up until now. The aroma had me a bit worried but this one is flavorful and balanced.
