look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Willi Becher glass. Canned on 14 July 2017.
3/2/2.25/2.5/2.5
A: Very light in color and transparent, with a faintest milky haze. Two fingers of head churns and quickly settles.
S: Smells grainy and gross. Some sulfur and skunk.
T: Tastes better, but still grainy-sweet and cheap tasting. You might as well be drinking High Life, etc.
M: Watery, with a sulfuric aftertaste.
O: I guess I don't get it. If you like cheap American lagers (and there is a time and a place) you will like this. Nothing to go out of your way for.

Bright yellow/gold tinge. Slight haze, very slight. Bread, hops, & just a hint of citrus on the nose. light body, grassy & grainy middle. Dry. very dry. Lemony notes carry on the back & throughout the finish.
Balanced. Refreshing. Light. Dry. No surprises. Well-executed, Lager.
This beer makes me feel better that come July on the FL West Coast, I will have this to counter the sweltering heat.

straw yellow in color with excellent clarity. There's a fingernail of dishwater white resting on top. The aroma is of German bittering hops and pale malt. The taste is very subtle light malt. The bittering hops do not really stand out, but I don't think they were meant to. The mouth is very smooth and quaffable.

Poured from the can into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. Slightly murky golden yellow color with a medium sized white head. Nice crisp flavor.
