Aroma is fairly sweet and lightly toasted, with a grainy character accompanying, and floral hops.

Flavor is sweet, as well, and very floral, with a lightly toasted malt and grainy backbone and a lightly bitter finish. Much more interesting than the American lager. It's perhaps a bit sweet for the style. A bit of bitter emerges late, along with some esters that don't belong.

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%.

Appearance- Golden amber color, but hazier towards the top with deeper amber colors and very little visibility, whereas the bottom is clear and more golden yellow. Pours a thin half finger head.

Aroma- Sweet caramel malts dominate with some toasted grains present too.

Taste- First sip and nice citrus flavor hops are noticeable which then meld with sweet caramel malts. Finish is big on the toasted grains with a little bit of the bright citrus hops still lingering, which result in an slightly awkward clash in flavor.

Mouthfeel- A clean, crisp lager with medium body due to a solid malt backbone, but not too much that it lingers. Very good feel and drinkability.

Overall- A solid lager with bright citrus flavors and a nice malt backbone of caramel sweetness and toasted grains. Slight clash in flavors with the citrus and toasted grains, but its a minor flaw. If this beer was in my neck of the woods I'd gladly buy this on occasion as its a step up from lagers like yuengling and it makes for a nice food pairing beer. (81/100)
