look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours clear and bright golden orange in color, half finger width head that quickly dissipates, leaving a mostly barren surface with a razor thin ring around the edge of the glass. A few small spots don't make much for lacing.

Smell - Sweet and bready with underlying orange.

Taste - FOllows the nose. Sweet upfront with some bread and sugary notes as it warms. Light orange undertone.

Mouthfeel - Light-bodied with fair carbonation. Clean, crisp and easy drinking finish.

Overall - While I enjoyed it better drinking straight from the can, this review is being done poured into a glass. I'm giving it a slight bump in my rating because of that. The sweetness tastes more sugary than bready as it does from the can. If I buy it again, I'll keep it in the can.

Aroma is malts/grains and citrus/sugar/almost skittles. The flavor is fruit/citrus, malts/grains and a mix of smooth and tart/dry/hoppy in the finish.

12 oz can, 5% ABV, with the stoopid Julian date on the bottom. I refuse to covert, so who knows the age. Month, date, year works much better, I wish they would just use it.

Looks the part, but seems low on carbonation and head disappeared quickly. Smells nice, honey, sweet, malty. Taste is solid, nothing I would ever crave. It’s very similar to Founders Solid Gold. Easy drinking, but not much else. Feel is soft. The lack of carbonation or hops leaves it with a blah finish.

I would take it over BMC as it does have more flavor, but most any Pilsner would be preferable. I get that craft is trying to lure in the every day drinker, but these beers will need to be priced appropriately or they will go away. They probably can command a slight premium over BMC, but can’t be priced at $10 a 6 pack. If they price 12 or 15 packs reasonably they will be a good pick for a BBQ, golf, fishing, etc.

12 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 3/16/2019. Pours fairly crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn, pine, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn, pine, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn, pine, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with no yeasty notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a delicious hoppy pale lager. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and fairly crisp/clean to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV, and not aggressive on bitterness. Feels like Citra, Mosaic, Centennial. Very vibrant, and fairly juicy/dank/earthy hops; with a great clean pils malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example as expected.
