Classic crystal clear golden lager with very little head leaving only a spotty white film on top.

Sweet bready pear, light lemon, and very fruity butter waft off the glass.

A different sort of lager, with raisin and grape characteristics somehow being showcased, with a very sweet corn element.

This is easy to drink, but not necessarily thoroughly enjoyable. A bit tingly, but also a little boring after a while, although it must be said, this is many number of steps up from a typical AAL.

On tap at the brewpub in January 2016

A light-medium yellow-gold in color, this lager already shows more than the typical straw yellow color most of its counterparts possess. It's got a tight, creamy layer of head that rests on top and puts down spotting and legging.
While plenty malty with lots of creamy sweetness, a touch of grains, and some fruits, there's also some pretty good grassy and leafy hops, particularly considering the style. There's a little must / earth as well and some floral notes from the hops as well. Laid out against others of its kind, this beer has much more flavor and depth.
While the body is light, there's some substance to it. It's semi-sweet overall but with a bit of additional dryness from hops keeping it from cloying. It's moderately crisp and plenty smooth as well as pretty clean.
