On tap at brewery.
Pours pretty much golden with a translucent haze. The beer has a nice amount of sustaining head even though the carbonation is hard to see that maintains it. The smell is a nice pronounced bready grain, along with some noble hop aroma.

The taste comes fairly smooth with a light bite of carbonation. The malts hit most of the tongue initially, with it a light sweetness with a slight bit of metal (which for some reason is how I usually feel about noble-hopped lagers). The earthiness of the hops, little grass, reed, smallest hint of lemon overtake the taste fairly quickly and linger on the tongue. I will note, as the beer warmed, near the bottom of the pour, the beer's sweetness is a little more prevalent.

This is a nice tasting, well balanced beer. The feel is a bit on the dry side of being completely refreshing. I wasn't wowed by any one component of this beer (nice balance perhaps the exception), but I enjoyed it as a complete beer.

Great summer brew. Drinkable but unique enough to be the average.
