Draught into nonic pint!

Two finger off-white head with impressive retention and lacing, high carbonation

Pale gold in color

Smells of hay, biscuits, grass, and lemon zest

Tastes of biscuits, and herbs, a small hop finish is at the end.

Overall, this is a splendid beer. Highly sessionable. I strongly endorse this beer, and I would happily place it in my own fridge at home.

A - A straw golden color, with 1 finger of head retention and nice streaks of sticky lace left all over my glass

S - Light malty grain aroma, and thats it. No alcohol presence

T - Malty, grainy lager/pilsner hybrid. Any hops added? Very watered down, kind of like a keystone light

M - Well carbonated, goes down smoothly

O - Well, it is a session, so not much to be expected with this one. It is very light, which I think is what Asheville Brewery aims for. Not my cup of tea, but the masses may enjoy it

Served this 12 oz. can in a shaker pint. No date. The beer was medium gold and clear. The white head left some sticky lace on the sides of the glass.

The smell was mildly lemony. Some sweet grainy notes too. Subtle.

The taste had a lemony snap to it. Pretty bright and crisp. Crackery malts. The taste reflects the aroma well.

The mouthfeel was medium to light with moderate carbonation and a bit of slipperiness. I admire any small brewery that makes a lager. This one is not ground breaking but it was easy to drink and very clean and refreshing.
