Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, faint hints of sweet fruit. In the taste, nice malt and fruit presence, with a small reminders of standard lager tastes. A small hop bite and light bodied mouthfeel, with a dry, small fruit in the aftertaste. Better than a standard lager, and a bit fruity and less abrasive than expected.

Refreshing and tasty. Nothing amazing but true to style. Wouldn't mind having this around on a hot day. Fat Heads always brews a terrific beer.

On tap at Fat Head's.

Pours a clear golden-straw color with a good white head and quite a bit of lacing as that eventually falls down into a thin collar. The nose brings a bit of grain and straw without too much else. There is a touch of light fruit and some herbal hops, though those are quite faint. The taste falls along the same lines. There is some grain and faint Noble hops, though I didn't really get anything else. The body is pretty good with some refreshing carbonation. Drinks pretty well overall--nice, clean, and inoffensive.

Appearance: Standard gold. 1/2" white head fades to a lasting lacing.

Aroma: Beery. Clean. European hops prevalent. Among three lighter style craft beers in a flight, this was my favorite.

Taste: Bitter arrival, in the best way. Clean and grassy across mid-palate, grainy.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, mid-to-lightweight.

Overall: Nice. This is what Heineken and Stella want to be when they grow up.

Enjoyed this on tap at Fat’s head.

A: Pours a clear golden hue with a 1-finger head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Not a huge aroma – some malts and grains.

T: Crisp malty flavor with some mild fruits in the background.

M: Medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: Not one my favorite beer of Fat’s heads – although my brother loves it – but he also likes Miller Lite.
