A crisp clean smooth golden colored lager. Very light tasting not too heavy of a beer.

Perfectly serviceable beer - as far as shelf layers go there are much worse out there. No adjuncty flavors, clean and crisp, mild cracker malt and English bittering hops. Unexciting sure but good

Nice clean crisp European lager, golden color with small amount of head. Smells of clean grains. Nice notes of grain, malt, biscuit, a tiny bit of sweetness in there as well. Nice medium carbonation that faded as the beer warmed up. Very thin mouthfeel, mild aftertaste of sweet malts. Very pleasant to drink and I could easily have a few if I wanted something lighter.

Very clear gold color. Medium white head dissipates quickly. Smells of grain, hay and earth. The grain smell is prominent in the taste but is balanced by some noble hops and their earthy floral goodness. Nothing to write home about but way better than I expected. Taste much like a German Pilsner.

Poured from a cold bottle into a pint glass. pours a golden hue with a thin white head that disappears quickly and moderate lacing. Smell is mostly unremarkable, maybe a hint of grass with a bit of of honey. Taste is crisp carbonation with light mouth feel and touch of sweetness. Overall, fairly unremarkable and not quite what I was expecting. Somewhat refreshing but forgetful.

12oz on draft, served in a shaker pint. Pours a clear light amber body, one half finger white head, fair retention and bits of lacing. Smell is baked bread, a bit of toasted grain, minimal floral and grassy notes. Not a whole lot going on, but it certainly smells like a lager. Standard flavour follows; a slightly bland mixture of toasted grain, biscuit with a dab of honey sweetness finished off by faint floral and grassy notes. On the sweeter side for a lager. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, not watery but not the most deep in terms of flavours, appropriate carbonation. Straightforward lager, on the sweeter side compared to most craft lagers.
