The beer is golden with a head that disappeared very quickly. Nice carbonation. All i could smell was floral hops. The taste was a mix of citrus and pine hop flavors. The malt flavor was overwhelmed by the hops. The beer is light but very refreshing.

Pours a golden yellow. Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Head disappears quickly.

Smells of fruity hops and breads malt

Clean taste with a bit of hop flavor. Crisp and clean.

Pale golden color light head. Nose fruit, sweet malts, hops, little grassy and bready. Taste a tad skunky (maybe an old bottle), sweet dried fruits and caramel, pepper. Clean lager finish. It's an ok lager much more flavor than macros but being an ale and stout guy it underwhelmed me. Would try again in case the bottle was past its prime.

Pours a hazy, golden color. One inch head of a white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of strong citrus, slight yeast, sweet malt, slight pale malt, hint of alcohol, and hops. Fits the style of a Munich Helles Lager, not necessarily a Dortmunder / Export Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong citrus, yeast, pale malt, slight sweet malt, hops, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, refreshing and very well balanced.
