8/3…pours very bright gold, wispy white foam that clears out in short order. German pils nose, rind of lemon. Clean, crisp, bright pils taste. Slight citrus finish. Snaps to attention. Excellent.

On-tap from a sixtel keg.

Straw gold with brilliant clarity and a large, creamy white head. Light bready Pils malt that gets overshadowed by spicy, floral hops. Mild sulfur, but nothing that detracts from the quality of the beer. Hop bitterness really comes through in the flavor and dominates. Clean, bitter, and crisp. Light bodied with good carbonation. An easy drinking, hoppy pils that makes for a refreshing beer on a hot day.

12 oz can

Pours a clear light straw gold, sugar white head is about an inch thick and retains pretty well.

Smells of straw grass, barley, sugar, light dry hops, and a hint of citrus. Very dry.

Tastes of barley malt and dry hops. Nothing complicated, just straightforward lager.

Medium body with lightly tingling carbonation on the tongue.

A very, very good take on the most basic lighter lager. It's not special or different nor is it trying to be. Just solid across the board and very sessionable. Easy to lose count throwing these back on a hot summer day.
