A - Clear, clean with minimal head.

S - Straight ahead malt brew with hints of grass and honey.

T - Let this one warm up a bit. Definitely crisp and clean to start, but one dimensional and weighted toward the bitter, with a few grassy notes. I would have rated it a 3.0 at that point. I was not terribly impressed. When my glass warmed up a bit, the flavor of honey opened up and added a much needed extra dimension that really improved the beer.

M - This is a very clean version of this type, with moderate but not overwhelming carbonation.

O - This is a reasonably good version of a very common style in the mainstream market. I am not a huge fan of the style, which factors, I suppose. But I wish this had more depth. Drinkable, but not particularly memorable.

Pours a clear golden with a half inch of sudsy white head. Dissipates fairly slowly.

Smells of fresh grassy malts and a hint of honey and citrus.

Grassy malt over mildly bitter dry hops with a hint of citrus.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the tongue.

A nice thirst-quenching lager with a great flavor profile. Very impressive and quite good.
