12 oz. from the bottle. Poured a small amount in a plastic cup first.

Appearance: Very light straw with a soapy white head.

Aroma: Some citrus along with grain and faint grass.

Taste: Follows nose. Sort of a citrusy light lager. Refreshing. Pleasant. Mostly inoffensive.

Mouthfeel: Thin and easy, unsurprisingly.

Overall: Craft light lager is still weird, but this is a pleasant little number.

A: crystal clear; pale straw in color; less than 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a very thin collar; light lacing;

S: pilsner malt, corn, a little DMS;

T: not much flavor up front - a little grain; a blast of lemon at mid-palate that fades toward the finish; very mild bitterness at the end;

M: light bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: not a beer I would choose, but for the style, it's well done;

Great summer beer - nothing special, but hits the spot when it is a lazy summer day and you're on the beach. Or sitting in your basement crying. Whatever this situation
