I bought a can of this at a Denver Airport kiosk. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving and not much lace. The scent was bread cracker like. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. Just a solid lager. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall I rated this for the beer style and it is definitely a solid lager.

On tap, poured into a pint glass. Light yellow, sticky lacing, a nice grassy smell, very easy drinking, no bitterness but not sweet either. Just a very good beer.

12 oz. Can

Pours a nice yellowish color, pretty nice carbonation, with a nice small thick/creamy off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty. The taste is malty, yeasty. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

Golden clpoudy yellow with light head, subtle scent, good flavor and a nice downhill drop through the throat, very nice. I like this one, very good and I look forward to having again.

Look: Pale yellow with bubbly white head, effervescent and leaves a lasting ring of lacing
Smell: You get a little bit of the malt bill and not a whole lot else
Taste: Sweet, slightly yeasty, very mild hop profile with a slight bitterness
Feel: Medium body, bubbly carbonation
Overall: Would take over a mass market beer any day. Good backup beer or just a simple, no thinking beer.

Crisp
Refreshing
Great malt
Just sweet enough
It's like a Motörhead clone. A clone of a band famous for doing the same song a variety of ways for 30+ years. This is the band cloning and copying that. Just because it's small variations on the same few ingredients doesn't mean this isn't operating in a genre as capable of profundity as any other.
