Clear gold with a fizzy head. Mild malt nose and body with moderate carbonation. Another straightforward lager.

Light, refreshing, easy drinking, thirst quenching. Good beer to slug down in place of water. I know people who consider this their favorite. Who can pick a favorite?

I used to love this beer. However as it has showed up in most tap rooms i think it has gone down hill. I blame this on pour. It seems a delicate beer that if poured sloppily the taste profile is off. Bottle not as good as great pour, just getting hard to get a solid pour anymore

Much better than I thought it was going to be very crisp full bodied lager with minimal hop and skunk presence with an almost sugary malt character even though the finish is kind of a dirty hop taste. Not sure if I would get it again but it was good to try at 3 bucks for a big bottle.

Classic, refreshing, simple brew recipe

Not much complexity to the taste, very straight forward wheat,sweet barley, simple hop and hop extract flavor

Beer is not very acidic, which brings these flavors out on the palate for a not overwhelming full flavor, with great mouth feel. Pairs well with aqua panna or deer park water
Finish you get a big taste of hop extract, not especially pleasant my only criticism of this beer.

Feel is great, on bottle or especially on tap, one of my favorite beers to have several of, a very quality alcohol experience, quite bargain

What I love about this beer is that it tastes like I always thought beer should taste. The look, smell, and taste all match what I thought beer should be growing up. Overall I would highly recommend this beer.
