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.

L -- Pale and bubbly. No head to speak of
S -- Orange, musk, hops... and a hint of urine
T -- Fruity with a lightly hopped finish
F -- Dry and light, but not watery
O -- Quite refreshing as a lunchtime beer on a hot day

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;
