From a growler purchased about 50 hours ago filled at Casonova's in Hudson....still perfectly carbonated..

A-Bright golden colored....hazy...nice fluffy white head..

S-Hay...grains....not real assertive on the nose..

T-Loaded with flavor....very bready and sweet with some light lemony citrus notes....does not remind me of a California Common at all but more like a Kellerbier...I can't keep this in my glass it is so tasty...

M-Perfect....rounded and smooth....perfect weight...not watery at all but not heavy....

O-One of my favorite easy drinking beers of all-time. A keg of this at a summer pool party would be perfect. I could drink this every day for the rest of my life. I really, really like this one.

Exceptionally smooth drinking lager. Poured from a 1 pint bottle, first chance to finally try a TG. Not disappointed & would definitely recommend.

Pours an impressive clear, light orange with a thin white head. Smells of a sweet, malty bread, maybe a slight citrus fruitiness. The brae nines and malt taste is awesome, just how I like a lager. A very light hop sneaks in. One of the better tasting lagers I've had! The taste continues after drinking. Quite refreshing. This flavorful lager is refreshing. Top notch!
