On-tap @ The 1up LoDo in Denver, CO.

Straw yellow with lively carbonation that keeps its white head in tact. Not much to speak of in the aroma but some faint grainy malt and floral hops. Clean, mild flavor that's inoffensive but lacks much character. Its dry finish with a medium-light body makes for an easy sipper.

I tend to rate things within style. I also am really digging lagers and this is one of the best in the state (to be fair there aren't a ton). This is extremely well balanced with grainy, cracker, slightly sweet malt and what tastes like some noble hops. This taste like a really well made Pilsner, although not quite as sharp on the hops. It's crisp, dry but not watery which is an accomplishment for it's 4.8% ABV. I think because it's "just a lager" and it's widely available, this beer will never get a lot of love on here.

Gold with a small lacing head
Dense lager smell with detectable hops
Taste is slightly bready with hops detectable, and some vinegar. Very drinkable with some depth
A great light tasting session with some actual flavor

Poured from 12oz can into a dimpled mug. Best by 10/13/17, so we're safe there.

Appearance: light golden hue with no haze, a light effervescence and a thin layer of frothy white foam. A little extra fizz would be nice here.

Smell: lightly sweet and malty; not bad or anything but without much in the way of distinguishing character.

Taste: sweet, right up front, with a bit of a malty character and a bit of a fruity character that I can't exactly place. It's alright, but it doesn't blow me away.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: like I said, this is not a bad beer, but it just doesn't have enough going on to really appeal to me.

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.
