A thickly clouded, bright medium orange in color, this beer certainly looks to have more substance than most of the style. A continuous cascading effect continues to strengthen the head, which begins around two fingers tall, so that it remains a very strong and thick one finger until it reaches the bottom of the glass. It deposits itself in rings and patches pretty heavily all the way down.
The nose gives off a little bit of citrus with some grains. This is clearly a malt-based beer if not all-malt. A bit of honey-like sweetness comes through. It all translates pretty much exactly in the flavor with an underlying very light spicy and floral bitter note indicating that there are some hops in here after all.
Mouthfeel is light, appropriate to style, and doesn't get too watery or thinned-out. A light touch of both crispness and smoothness makes this a pretty good one, though it could use a bit more of each; if you're going light, this is better than most options available as far as this type of lager is concerned.

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a two finger high off white head that has excellent retention properties.
S: There are aromas of grassy hops and lemon citrus in the nose along with some notes of grainy malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has a bit of lemongrass and metallic flavors with a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. A little dryness is present in the finish.
O: There’s nothing very appealing about the smell or taste of this beer to make me want to try another.
