Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass at Woodmore Country Club.

A: Pours a straw golden hue with a thin 2-finger white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Mild aroma of grains and hops. Thin nose – slightly skunky.

T: Typical lager flavor of mild grains and hops – slightly bitter and crisp.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Typical lager – nothing I would grab again – only drank this one because it was really the only thing available.

Pours a pale, golden yellow with a half of an inch of loose, bubbly, soap-like head that fades quickly. There are a ton of noticeable carbonation bubbles that rise to the surface. The nose is very faint and grainy. The flavor is also quite light but with a decent malt character that is grainy and slightly sweet. There are some very faint grassy notes in the finish. The mouthfeel is very light and crisp.

This is yet another lightly flavored, lager. It's drinkable and refreshing, but overall it's forgettable.
