A: Gold / amber lager; pours very clear with a fizzy head that builds fast and dissipates quickly.

S: Not too much going on; a bit of malt maybe. Pretty neutral experience.

T: Not bad for an AAL; rather sweet with just enough spice to keep me interested. Sixteen ounces went down very easily.

M: Again, better than I expected; there's enough here to elevate this beer above most of the macros I've tried.

O: This beer surprised me a bit, and I might just reach for another on a sweltering summer day. Definitely a cut above many of the pale, watery offerings to be found within this genre.

Bright, golden yellow in color with perfect clarity. Poured with a thick, soapy foam that slowly reduced to a wispy cap. Grainy corn, grass and light malt aromas with floral hop notes. Carbonation was slightly subdued up front creating a creamy feel. Light, tangy hop crispness through the middle up front with a clean semi-dry finish. Flavors are in line with the aromas. Light, crisp and refreshing. By far the best lager of its kind that I've had to date. Love the tall boy too.
