Appears crystal clear golden straw with a magnificent white head, canned to perfection great suds to look at and embellish in. Aroma has fresh baked bread like notes herbal earthy grassy hops, flavor comes off crisp refreshing biscuit and pils malt with enough hops 18 IBUs to keep things interesting. Great summer beer my new staple for golfing and grass mowing, body is light finishes crisp perfect drinkable PA lager! Paired with Room 101 Namakubi Ecuador excellent spicy cigar with enough ligero to put hair on your chest!

I had this at the goat races - served chilled in a willybecker.
A - A clear golden as the name states w/ small white cap. The bead is pin sized and carbonation is visible, attractive lager to view in the Sly Fox glass.

S - Great malt nose w/ floral hops and light mineral note from subtle yeast aroma

M - Crisp light body + light herbal hop w/ nice malt smooth dry texture. A bit spicy for my taste to be honest.

T - A nice crisp flavor but hoppier than most w/ a nice clean yeast profile and mild sweetness. The hops have great flavor, but higher up in the taste than malt which is a little off the mark, but taste is a nice blend of complimentary flavors

D -= A good example of the style, a nice quaffable helles, but could use more malt in the tast IMO, like the clean drinkable aspects a lot, I could drink many of these in a session

12oz can into pint glass. Drank the rest of the six pack from the cans.

Very nice golden color. Not much of a head but left a white lacing down the glass.

Excellent, excellent clean beer smell. Malty goodness.

Not overly sweet, but good bready malts finishing with a nice hoppy bitterness.

Light but not overly carbonated. Very smooth finish.

This is an awesome, basic beer when you just want a straight up beer. Highly drinkable. Also really dug the open top cans. Good job Sly Fox.

Good. Nothing fancy, but tasty and sessionable.

Pours pale yellow with a fluffy head and lots of carbonation. Smell is grainy and bready with a kiss of hops. Flavor very light, grainy with a bit of noble hop. Mouthfeel is quite light. Great summer beer
