Pours a deep straw golden color. Minimal head half the width of a pinky, despite an aggressive pour. There is minimal aroma. Soft mouthfeel with light bubblegum and grain. It is a light and unoffensive. There is no lingering aftertaste. Overall, this is a soft, refreshing lager. Would try this again fresh, but I'm not sure how much of a difference that would make.

Poured from can into a tulip. Nice hazy golden color. Minimal head which dissipates quickly leaving a ring around the glass. Smell I pick up mild citrus, reminds me of tangerine. Very smooth taste, now that I am thinking about that tangerine I am starting to taste it. Mild hop bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel on this beer is really good. When I started drinking this I was thinking I wasn't going to like it too much, but it has changed my mind. This would be a good sushi beer. Think I will go back and grab a 6r and stick it in the fridge for the BYOB sushi joints we frequent.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass. Nice citrus flavor but not overly so. Sort of creamy on the palette. Overall a good beer but not great.

The rating is based on tasting it on tap at the brewery, not from the can.

Flat out delicious. The first thing I noticed was the exceptional creamy head for a lager. Very drinkable. Could be a long haul beer.
