A nice start to my trip through the American Lager series. Pours a clear golden color. Tastes clean and crisp. Slightly bitter finish. Great summer beer.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a shaker pint.

Look - Crystal clear golden with a medium white head made up of large bubbles. Visible streams of strong carbonation.

Smell - A pleasant dry breadiness with grassy earthy hops. Has an unexplainable homeliness to it.

Taste - Tastes nothing like the smell. Has a surprising overripe fruit sweetness to kick things off with that ends with a light floral tone and quickly dissipates to nothing. A simple and pretty beer that I can imagine is refreshing on a hot summer day.

Feel - A thin body with almost no fizz makes this an easy drink. A bit more carbonation would go a long way with this though.

Overall - Good enough but not that great. Fine enough to drink but far from my favorite.

Pours a clear "pissy looking" yellow, small white heads that fades to a ring.
Lightly hopped, cereal and grains. Lightweight, easy drinking summer beer. Nothing memorable about it but if I had 12 in a cooler covered in ice, I'd be good!

Clear amber,medium body with just below average carbonation. Aroma of cereal,malt, and a slight floral smell
..taste was very similar,not sweet,far from any strong hop bitterness. It works really well for what it is..a very decent summer beer thats good to have while sitting out on the patio

Tasted in a Spiegelau lager glass from a 12 fl oz can on June 15, 2018. A crisp and refreshing lager that has a light, bready malt character balanced with a clean Noble hop flavor aroma.

12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, golden color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of sweet caramel, toffee and grassy notes. Sweet caramel with a mild bitterness.

A: The beer is crystal clear golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with some white lacing on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose along with notes of bready malts and slight hints of spicy hops.
T: The taste is a little maltier compared to the smell, and has flavors of biscuit and bready malts along with notes of grassy hops and hints of mineral water. Only a slight amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but seems like it could use a little more hops to brighten things up as the malts were a little too prominent.
