Tastes and smells like the beer style it is, reminds me more of a helles but who am I to know the difference? Pretty tasty. Good cold on hot summer days.

This is a very drinkable easy summer beer. Crisp and light, not sweet or sugary. As advertised, nice for sitting on the porch cooling off after mowing the lawn.

Bottle to pilsner glass.

Bland lager. Hay, grass.
A little soapy, a hint of sour.

Not really enjoyable.

crisp, but too dark to be considered a summer lager, more of a pilsner, nice feel though. A taste that stays a while.
