Hazy, yellow/gold appearance with a small white head and little lacing. Grassy aroma with floral hops lingering in the background. A touch of citrus ahead of sweet, grainy, metallic flavors. Medium-to-light bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel. Slightly acidic, short lived finish.

The best light beer I have had. Not as light as others, but worth every extra carb and calorie.

Pours a clear golden color with a quickly fading minimal head. Smells of malt and hops, Taste is quite good for a light beer, hoppy with a decent malt backbone. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side but satisfying. This is pretty good for a sessionable lager. It's probably not something I would seek out, but I got a case of it for free, This would be pretty refreshing on a hot summer day, Thumbs up!

From the can, it pours a light golden color with a small white head, quickly diminishing to a thin layer and leaving just a touch of lacing. Light scent of malt and hops, followed by a light lager taste. Probably great on the docks in Nantucket!

12 0z can into modern pub glass. Dated 10/10/18.
Look is clear pale yellow. Nose is yeasty light malt. Taste follows nose and fairly balanced lager. Feel is light. Overall ok for what it is. Would drink again but not seek out.

Canned on 3/28/2018. Poured from 12. oz. can into pint glass. It pours a clear straw color with a half finger of foamy, bright white head and lacing. The nose is almost non-existent; just some light cracker and spice. The taste is okay for a light lager: cracker, lemon, and a bit of spicy bitterness at the finish. The feel is crisp and light and, at 3.8% it's hard to imagine an easier drinker. This brew should be accepted for what it is: a super light hot weather quencher. It's fine for outdoor activities such as boating or softball.

This beer is extremely easy to drink with a light body, nice carbonation and a snappy finish. The aroma has floral noble hop character and the flavor has a light cracker like base with a dry floral bitterness.

a shame this is not more widely distributed. I'd buy by the crate. Quite frankly the ultimate session beer.

From a can into a tulip glass, faint, transparent yellow in color, hints of lemon at first taste.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a light yellow color with a decent transparency about it to allow a light carbonation seen rising in streams. There was a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some spider web lacing speckling the glass. The smell had a light sweet corn with a slight sweet cereal. The taste was mainly sweet through the corn and cereal, it gets a little bready in the flavor. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and came across pretty sessionable. The carbonation was there and good for its style and to me. Overall, I say this was a pretty good premium lager.
