This beer was a pale gold color with a tiny white head.
Pleasant aroma of sweet malt, floral hops, and yeast.
Taste of cracker and some white pepper/spice.
Light and refreshing.

12-oz. can dated 03/09/18 poured into a 16-oz. mug. Golden and slightly hazy with a short lived foamy white head that shrinks to a film. Small fizzy bubbles rise around the bottom of the mug. Some early lacing.
Yeast is the first smell present followed by semi-sweet malt, grains and hops.
Rich and semi-sweet malt flavor at first with a bitter tangy yeast bite in the middle finished by mild hops.
Medium-rich body held up by the average carbonation level slowly dries but does not thin. Warms well, flavors become more pronounced, alcohol is barely noticable.
Great golden color, lots of malt, not to bitter and not overly hopped. A solid summer selection.

From the can, it pours a nice lightly hazy golden color with a modest head, soon reducing to nothing. Bread with a touch of hops in the nose. The mouth gets the light bite of carbonation with a malt flavor as well.

Well made, tasty lager. Malty with a hint of floral hops wafting in. When you just want to have a good, solid beer that doesn't demand much, this is perfect. There's no wow factor here, just an enjoyable beer that's perfect for the style.
