3.25/5  rDev -3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from the can into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Hazy and dull muted dark lemon yellow, with nearly microscopic carbonation. Head is fleeting and soapy white, about two fingers but dissolves quickly. Big bubbled collar with little to hold it together, but is always being repopulated.

Light, wet clean smell. Slightly powdery grains, a bit of grass but more lawnmower smelling than herbal. A strange sense of orange citrus makes a faint appearance it seems too.

Palate is sensible but a bit underwhelming. Very wet bodied with not much malt density or flavors. Doesn't finish that clean with quite a bit of fruit punch like aftertaste. Slightly milky feeling wet hop oil and bitterness with muted fresh green cut grass. Dandelions?

A drinkable but very odd tasting lager.

Weak in flavor.
Not a huge fan, had it a Nationals game, who I am also not a fan of.
Beer was shuffled aside for something bigger and better, nothing fun stands out.

On draft at the brewery, pours a clear dark gold, thin ring of white head, good carbonation with lots of bubbles.

The nose is bready malt, grass, earthy floral notes and straw. The flavor is lightly sweet bready malt, straw and grass, some honey, cracker. This is a bit oily and soapy. The finish is clean, crisp, refreshing when cold. This is a great baseball beer and happy to see their partnership with the Washington Nationals on this brew.
