Tried this one as part of the sampler.

A - Straw yellow color. Very clear with white head.

S - Typical light lager smell. Similar to MGD.

T - Crisp and refreshing lager. Has some acidity and really no hop flavor.

M - Extremely light.

Overall, this is an ok brew for a summer day. This brew is not meant for those that like a full flavor brew but is a nice alternative to their vast array of other terrific beer.

This is the yeastiest lager I've ever had: it tastes like I've stuck my head in a rising ball of fresh dough. It's the strongest yeast flavor: so crisp and clean. It's not unpleasant, but it is pronounced, and so unless you like big yeast flavor ...

The head is substantial and lingers, but leaves little lacing. The aroma is fresh-baked bread. First taste is all yeast and unbaked rising dough. I am not kidding: the yeast is absolutely amazing and more pronounced than in any lager I've ever tried. (Trying to bookend the yeasty end of the yeast-to-hops continuum?) Thin mouthfeel.

Anyway, this is fun stuff and a great new beer from a young establishment trying to do it right.

This is an exceptionally light and refreshing all-malt. They call it a lawnmower beer, I call it a bold experiment in timidity. It's not a small beer, but it certainly not an American pale or an attempt at a pils.

Pours strawwhite but there's a nice head on top of it and great lacing.

Smells... good. Firm, layered, and flavorful, but there's not too much of anything. They had sense enough not to overhop this. Good dose of weeds, some west coast hops that are more dry than bitter, a little fruitiness from the yeast.

Tastes... good. Light, but good. Most craft attempts at a beer like this (either a lawnmower or a light) end up tasting soapy or excessively, pungently weedy. I guess it's just hard to make a beer that's light on the ABV and calories but still has flavor. This avoids those pitfalls by hopping the beer juuust enough and focusing on the interplay between the yeast and the light malt. It's spritely and fruity and only mildly, pleasantly weedy. No soap.
