L) Pours a light straw color with creamy white head, decent retention and lacing. Wish there was a little bit more haze.

S) Strong straw and grain, a bit of almost toasty nuttiness. Quite nice.

T) Everything in the nose is on the palate, as well as a smidge of grassiness. Very drinkable.

F) Honestly, has a great body for the style and is super crisp. Perfectly carbonated.

O) This is a really solid brew, easy recommendation to anyone looking for a drinkable lager with some character to it.

L: Pour a nice 3.5 SRM color, with a light amount of pure white head. Slightly hazy with a good amount of visible carbonation rising up the beer.
S: A fairly standard European pilsener aroma. Smells fresh and pleasant.
T: A nice balance of of bready malt flavors and hop flavors. Flavor is a little weak though (that, and I rarely drink beers with this low of an ABV)
F: Light-bodied, moderate-high crispiness.
O: Nothing special

Has a grainy, yeasty flavor as per the style. There's a little bit of citrus and a prominent grassy hop flavor. There's a little bit more hop bite than I prefer from the style, but it's still highly crushable and satisfying. I would especially find this appealing on a warm summer day, as it's quite crisp and refreshing. I just think there's just a little bit more of a sharp, aggressive hoppiness on the front end than I would prefer.

Slight citrus Be bread notes, crisp lager carries everything else to the finish.

Taste rating in words: it's that one person who picks up their two buddies, during a race and carries them to the finish line.

Poured a hazy, straw yellow color from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Big white head with good retention and plenty of thin lacing on the glass. Aroma and flavor include lemon, yeast, some mild wheat bitterness and grassy hops. Everything is mild and understated but pleasant enough. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Goes down real easy. A good example of a fairly subtle style. A good summertime thirst quencher.

From a very old can picked up by my wife. Probably should have taken it back, but wanted to give it a shot. This review may improve if I revisit this beer in the future.

Pours hazy straw with a big, puffy white cloud of foam that recedes slowly and leaves gobs of sticky foam on the glass. Initial aroma is yeast and bready malt, overtaken quickly by a strong soapy smell. Taste is somewhat better than the smell, with strong grain and yeast with a lemony kick. Medium body, good carbonation.

"Best by 10/31/16"; drank 6/23/16 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy yellow/orange appearance; champagne bubbles throughout.

A rough pour yielded a huge, noisy bright white head; strong, frothy lace.

Lemon, fresh bread & sea salt notes in the nose; interesting!

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Fresh bread & faint lemon flavors up front; dry clove & faint sea salt notes on the finish.

A nice enough lager with some depth; I doubt this well ever be my favorite style, but I found this mildly enjoyable.

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip.

Appearance: light straw hue with a dash of haze, a moderate effervescence, and a finger of frothy white foam. It reminds me a lot of a witbier, actually.

Smell: quite grainy with plenty of yeasty aroma and a dash of spicy hops. Stylistically on-point.

Taste: much like the aroma, it's sweetish, grainy, and with a definite rough-hewn yeasty, lagery character. I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess. It works darn well for a beer this light.

Overall: with a low ABV and interesting flavor, this is an eminently quaffable beer.
