Probably my go-to summer beer. Amazingly delicious, refreshing, and under-appreciated, and at one of the most affordable prices out there.

I'm not overly familiar with the style although I love Great Lakes' Dortmunder Gold. This one has similar qualities - basically a malty golden lager with a bit more body than a german pilsner but not as deep in flavor as a Marzen or a Vienna Lager. Still very flavorful though with the clean yet sweet breadiness and a clean balanced finish.

Pours clear golden with minimal head. Smells light with notes of lemon. Has a nice mildly bitter hop taste with a nice dry finish. This is a good representation of style.
