Tall can from the source in Elmsford, NY

Pours light straw amber, with a light level of haze.

Light and refreshing straw infused nose.

More straw, light grassiness and and some crackery malts.....light and refreshing...would be great with some spiced up tropical eats.....quality lager

Clear light gold appearance
Body is about medium with the same for carbonation.
Aroma is citrus, citrus seed, citrus peel,malt, cereal followed with some grain.
Taste is very similar to aroma with the cereal and citrus peel lingering in the aftertaste.
Overall its a very enjoyable lager that worked great with food. I would look for this again.

16 ounce can poured into a tulip glass. Canned 4/22/21.

L---Clear very pale, bright yellow color. Big, fluffy head settled quickly and left minimal lacing.

S---Well balanced between hops (citrus) and malts (grains).

T---Citrus & grains like on the nose.

F---Fairly thin, no real weight to it. Well carbonated.

O---A fairly light lager, but something that would be good around the pool or at the beach.

Poured into a shaker.

L: 2.75 Extremely pale to the point where it doesnt have the appearance of beer, rather ginger ale. The head goes away quickly.
S: 4. Adjuncts on the nose. Very grainy with a hint of something sweet. But a powerful scent nonetheless.
T: 4. Very tasty for a light lager. Rice cakes. Lager malt. Lightly peppery hops.
F: 3.75. Easy going, but it doesn't compare to the mass produced stuff. Light mouthfeel with ticklish carbonation.
O: 3.5. A very good choice for a summer crusher, or year round really. Recommended.

Now in a clear pint glass, the color, or lack thereof, is readily seen. It's a very light, light amber and it really couldn't get much more translucent and have any color at all. Speaking of light, that can also be used to describe the aroma, or lack thereof. There's almost none of the bready sweetness many lagers provide the nose and no evidence of hops at all. There's also very little head, although it came well carbonated from a tap. It does taste better than the preliminary characteristics foretold. Some of that bready sweetness is there, but the body is light, even for a lager, to carry it well. At least some hops make it into the taste. As the beer warms the hop inclusion improves enough to balance the sweetness and deliver a touch of nuttiness and bitterness. So, the beer that begins shallowly sweet ends up with just enough flavor to pass. There was almost no glass lacing, nor was it expected.

Can. Light straw with a white head.
Minimal aroma. Grass, citrus and grain perhaps.
Corn like flavour. Dry cracker.
Thin and fizzy.
Reflects the style.

On tap at WECO, West Columbia SC

Clear gold with two fingers even white head. Full curtains of lacing and cap.

Grass, corn, light malt aromas.

Light grass, biscuit, lemon peel

Good carbonation, refreshing, meets the classic lager description. Good summer beer for sports or picnics.

Aggressive pour yields a moderate 1" head that doesn't stick around; tapers to a foamy white ring pretty quick. Color straw yellow, a little cloudy, big carb bubbles. Yeast/dough, mild grains, slight dried lemon on the nose - not necessarily popping, but nice enough. Grain, yeast, and corn dominant flavors, cracker finish, sweetness lingers a bit much for my liking. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.

16 oz can poured into a Willi Becher glass. Pours a clear straw yellow with a big fizzy off-white head. Decent retention and lacing. Aroma is clean malt with a hint of corn sweetness and a whiff of grassy hops. Taste is similar but very muted, almost bland. Mouthfeel is well-carbonated and light. Overall a refreshing beer for a hot summer day but nothing I'll seek out again.

For a craft AAL it’s quite sold and a step up from macro AALs but a touch void in flavor. At least zero off flavors so for what it is, it’s quite good.

The pour is straw yellow in the pilsner glass with carbonation for days. The taste is corn, mild hops, barley, & grains. This was a well done lager, what else can you expect from good old New York folks. Cheers! B-

16oz. can served in a willibecker. Pours a translucent straw gold with a fluffy, 1.5 inch bright white head that sizzles and pops as it gradually recedes. Nose is what you'd expect for the style - corn adjuncts and grassy notes. Taste consistent with nose; however, less adjuncts and a bit watery with cereal grains come out at the finish. Mouthfeel is light in body with a carbonation shy of lively. Overall, decent example of the style. Not as sweet as most adjunct lagers.

Crystal clear straw color with a foamy white head. Good retention.

Smells like sweet corn, cracker, and hay.

Tastes predominantly of sweet corn, with cracker malt, hay, and a touch of grass. Leans slightly sweet but finishes slightly dry and clean.

Fairly high carbonation, crisp and clean.

A perfect take on an American adjunct lager. Tastes almost exactly like Miller High Life. LOL.
