Notes from 7/5/2022.
Crowler purchased from Which Craft on 7/3/2022 and opened 7/5/2022.
Poured into a nucleated Pilsner glass and a Rastal nucleated Teku glass.
The beer is clear amber with two fingers of white head. Retention is good.
The intensity of aroma is slightly below medium. There are notes of fruity hops with slight notes of peaches, mango, and some other hints of fruits that overall creates a pleasant aroma.
The intensity of taste is slightly below medium. The flavor is clean with a light hop spiciness, a slight fruitiness, a slight mineral flavor and light bitterness.
The feel is light with a moderate amount of carbonation and low astringency.
Overall, it's very good and easy to drink as expected. I like it but I doubt I will buy it again. I prefer a Helles or Kolsch when choosing a lighter beer.

Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of puffy white foam. The head fades rather fast leaving a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is very light overall, with some grain and a little bit of caramel. Along with these smells comes a touch of orange and lemon citrus and a bit of grapefruit hop.
Taste – The taste begins with a crisp cracker malt flavor that is mixed with some light sweetness of harvest fruits as well as a touch of caramel. Some very light herbal and earthy hops are present upfront, both of which get slightly stronger as the taste advances. At the same time a bit of grapefruit hop also joins the taste, and with a fading of some of the slight sweetness that was present upfront, one is left with a crisp and clean taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is light and crisp with a carbonation level that is slightly higher. For the style and the tastes, the feel is good and makes for a refreshing and easy sipper.
Overall – While not super flavorful, it is easy drinking and refreshing. A good warm day brew.

Great lager. Light but still very flavorful. Slight banana yeasty taste, but it’s an underlying note. Easy to drink. Mouthfeel average. Five percenter.

Beer poured from the can. Beer poured with a very murky dark yellow appearance with a thin head and patchy lacing. Very floral aromas that go with a sweet, somewhat earthy, grapefruit taste. Good carbonation and texture. Overall, really good aromas and taste.

12 oz. Can

Pours a pretty nice hazy dark golden yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, slightly hoppy, with some grapefruit. The taste is malty, slightly hoppy, nice touch of grapefruit, nice sweetness. Medium body, ABV is hidden pretty nicely, with a slight dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

Easy to drink. Very even keel, mellow. Not hoppy (I don't like hoppy beers). Many people might think this is kind of a boring beer (probably because it's not very hoppy, which tends to be all the rage right now) , but I really enjoyed it.

Pale yellow orange with one finger of thick tan froth. Smells of straw, lemon and grapefruit. Tastes of straw/grain, grapefruit and pear. Light and flavorful without much going, which doesn't always mean bad. This is the kind of beer that tastes good and does its job without even having to think about it.
