A - Pours a brilliant light golden color that is hazy. Bright white pillowy 1 finger head that doesn't last long. Very little lacing on my Duvel Tulip.

S - Hints of lemon, grass, floral, and faint bread.

T - Follows the nose. Light and bready with faint wheat. Hints of the lemon and maybe apple give a tangyness, providing a bit of balance to the sweetness. The taste of this Lager is incredible, best I have had.

M - So light and crisp with good carbonation. Leaves a nice tang on the finish.

D - All around great refreshing lager. Light and crisp. I don't normally drink Lagers, but I will have more of this as it will be great to have during hot summer days. Well done TG!

Strong all white head with a pale yellow hue that its bright. Good bubbles and light lacing.

Light smooth crisp smell. Of base malt. Lacks complexity but has a refreshing smell that its indicative of the taste.

Smooth mouth feel makes a very drinkable beer.very light on the tongue. The flavor its simple pale light malts provide a sweet breaddy taste. The yeast Esters are present and noticeable and reminds me of a classic American lager. The hops are absent. A little coriander, maybe, and a little undetermined spice.

Worth a try but not something to brag about

Had on tap at Bodega Brew Pub - hosted beer tasting, poured into 4 oz glass.

Appearance is light pale yellow with little head.

Aroma is some grass, yeast?

Taste is light and sweet.

Palate ended with slight sour and a nice fizz.

Easy to drink, above average lager.

Pouredd a clean yellow,with a light white head.
The smell is light and clean with a touch of grassy hops.

The flavor is clean with light bit of lemony and grassy hops, a touch of light bready grain.

Light and zippy mouthfeel with good carbonation.

Easy to drink and no real flaws, but nothing compelling about it either.
