Served cold from green 330ml bottle into pilsner glass.

L) Pale yellow, clear, lots of small bubbles rising. Thin white bubbly film.

S) A bit weird, not hoppy, a bit of a musty honey-ish odour.

T) Actually ok. Light in flavour, for sure but light lager flavour and light hop presence. No real bitterness.

F) Light and pleasantly carbonated. No aftertastes.

O) Ok light lager, no problems with this one.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of mild malts, grains. Taste is light, some grains, malts, floral notes. Feels light in the mouth and overall nothing offensive here, but this beer is kind of bland and boring. A mediocre brew.

Bottlepicked up in DC. Purchased based strictly on reputation, had hoped for better, but all together a pedestrian pilsener, lots of cereal notes, could have been more crisp

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: cloudy greenish-yellow. Little head that dissipates quickly.
Smell: Malty, biscuit-like smell.
Taste: Not too malty like the smell. Hoppiness is the dominant taste, but not the floral hoppiness of IPA but only the bitterness. Some citrus taste, but not much.
Feel: Light body. after the bitterness subsides, some maltiness and a little orange taste rest on the tongue.
Overall: An okay brew, hybrid between the hop and the malt, but the same hybrid-ness makes it great in none.

Poured from bottle at Del Ray Cafe in Alexandria, VA. Small head that receded after a minute or so. Nice pale yellow color with noticeable carbonation. Easy to drink and refreshing on a hot summer day. I taste a bit of lemon-like sourness and a subtle, zesty hop finish.

There is a good amount of flavor in this beer. It is much more distinguishable and complex than other American versions of this style I've tasted. This brewery has been around a long time for good reason.

look: 3.25 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2

Bright straw color with strong activity. Thick white 2 finger head lasting around 8 minutes with some good legs.

Faint aromas and flavors of grains, citrus, floral and herbal spices. Balanced sweet and sharp lemony taste with minimal hops and a metallic feel. Almost no smell.

Medium slick body with moderate carbonation. Faint and short finish ending with minimal floral and herbal feel.

Overall poorly crafted having bland watery flavors and no personality. Though refreshing and accessible, it should have more hops.
