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

12oz can, tulip wine glass hybrid, canned 8/8/19.

Straw color, the faintest of haze, fancy paper white head, decent retention.

Nutty, crisp, cracker-like malt that makes my mouth water in anticipation. Grass and slight sulfur.

Less defined malts, sweeter, like cornbread and green apple. Brisk peppery and grassy flavors provide some bite in combination with the carbonation.

Light, effervescent. Minerality riding a wave of small bubbles.

This year my appreciation of lagers has grown considerably and concomitantly I’ve found that many American breweries are currently making refreshing, high quality lagers like this one.

Good refreshing beer when you don't want an intense ale. Has some floral quality to its taste, a little bread, good malts, and has a crisp finish. Nothing life changing but great for right after getting home from work.

Can. Misty straw. Thick and lasting head.
Light grass and citrus aroma. Fresh fruit basket.
Earthy lemon taste with a balancing malt flavour.
Light feel. Decent carbonation.
Just right for a Sunday salad but not my Lamb Shank.

12 oz. from the can.

Appearance: Supposedly brilliant. I took it from the can.

Aroma: Clean, crisp. Traditional lager nose.

Taste: Herbal and grassy, with some bread and toast. There’s a touch of corn that I kind of wish wasn’t there.

Mouthfeel: Light and lagery.

Overall: Decent but kind of unremarkable lager. Kind of glad I bought this at a fundraiser.

From the 12 fl. oz. can with no obvious date stamp. Sampled January 18, 2019.

It has a slightly cloudy, straw yellow appearance with a modest but fading white head. It looks the part.

Aroma of toasted bread, crackers, cookie, grass, and a sort of olive oil sensation.

The mouthfeel is medium and smooth.

The taste has a little corn, a little sweet crackery malt, and a little lingering dryness. I thought it was decent enough.

Received as a Christmas gift as part of a mixed twelve-pack of cans. Canned-on date of 10/18. Have had a few brews from these guys before. Not my usual style, but decent brew.

S - Nice apple/cider smell.
T - Similar to nose but with some bitterness.
F - A little thin/watery, but not bad.
O - Pretty nice beer. Easy drinker, too.

Nearly clear with a darker straw color. Small but lingering head. Excellent ring lace with streaks in between.

More raw grain smell than malted pale barley. Light hop.

The taste now leans to the pale malt rather than raw barley (but it's still there). The hop is also more pronounced. For the style, both the body and carbonation are appropriate. The finish has some nice spice in the form of white pepper. Overall, it's not as bad as I expected and very similar to its German cousin except for greater bitterness.
