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.

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.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours golden with nice transparency and has bubbles racing upwards; fluffy eggshell white head that falls leaving great thick retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have hops leading the way. There's a nice amount of orange and apricot. Some bread and crackers. Some malts. The flavors follow the nose. More orange and apricot. Some fresh grass. More bread and crackers in the mix. Malts do their thing without dominating. Nice clean moderate bitterness. Finishes juicy and dry at the same time, but it's on the drier side. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's on the fuller side of light-bodied with active carbonation. It's sharp, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a really nice lager. There's some hops in the mix, which doesn't make this one a classic example of the style, but it still has a nice lager vibe going on. It's very clean, crisp, sharp and refreshing. The craftsmanship is on point. I really, really like this one.

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.
