New favorite beer?

Hello everyone! Poured out of a 16 oz. can, this beer is superb.

Appearance - Pours a soapy one-finger head. It has a straw-yellow color, similar to Budweiser. By the looks of it, there doesn't seem to be an immense amount of carbonation. Looks like your average, ordinary beer.

Smell - Right off the the bat, I smell a lot of graininess. It has a good smell of breadiness. I think it smells malty, too. I don't really smell any hops.

Taste (most important) - I definitely taste good hops. The hops are NOT overpowering at all. It kind of reminds me of Budweiser, but without the overwhelming adjuncty sweetness of Budweiser, and it has more of a hoppy taste. It is like a crisp, cleaner version of Budweiser. I think it's worth mentioning that it has a 5.5% ABV, which I think is a good achievement.

Mouthfeel - Not overly carbonated and spritzy. It has a little heft to it, but not too much.

Overall - If you want a beer, this is what a beer should taste like. Overall, this is a great overall beer! I think this is my new favorite beer.

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!
