Appearance: Light copper, white lacing, moderate head retention and good clarity. Would have liked a little more deeper color, perhaps an indicator of light grain bill.

Aroma: Good aroma, which is the best feature of this brew. Nice complexity, with layers of sweet caramel, toasty, and biscuit.

Taste: Clear flavors, although lacing the dynamic of the smell. Clean hop bitterness. Needs more malt backbone, as it drinks a little watery.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light to medium body, which is very true to style. However, could remain in style range with a little more malts and the resulting body.

Overall: This beer is good, but not great. It certainly desires more love than it gets. It is a very refresher brew and on a nice hot day if I were to want a light malty beer, this would be a good selection. I do think if I were the recipe owner, I’d increase the malt bill by about 10%.

Pours a clear gold with amber tones. Light head and no lace discernible.

Nose is subtle toasty grains and yeast. Nothing special.

Flavor brings this one back, though, with an odd tinge of tropical fruit rounding out the toasted grains. Seems quite well-balanced and not over-malted as some lagers can be. I say, this one's solid and well worthy.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light copper color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is toasted malt and some caramel. The taste is hop driven with some faint malt in the background. An average beer.
