12oz can, about 2 months old (freshest I could find in DC). Poured into a pint glass. Pours a slightly opaque, cloudy darker golden-copper body, one finger white head, good retention and no lacing. Smell is crisp bready malt, mineral, floral notes, a bit grainy. Flavour follows, very drinkable and approachable bready sweetness, touch of floral, a bit of lemon zest, but ultimately mineral and malt sweetness dominates. Although, it's not cloying or too sweet, given the grassy/floral bite the hops provide. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, good depth, easy to drink and appropriately carbonated. Good summer beer for sure, an appropriately balanced lager with a good malt character in the background.

Slightly hazy, orangish gold with a big just-off white head. Good retention, nice lace
Smells like bready malt, a bit herbal, a bit citrusy
Soft, bready malt flavor, hint of herbs and citrus, nice slightly bitter finish with a whiff of sulphur
Medium bodied
Drinkable enough, but with enough heft to let you know you had a beer.

Another underappreciated style, in my opinion. Pours light amber with golden highlights. Head poofs down to nothing almost instantlt. Nose is citrus, ciscuit and caramel.

Malt driven, obviously, with a thin texture and lots of carbonation. Simple but interesting, with lemon lezt in the aftertaste. I can see this going nicely with seafood or chicken, in place of white wine. Also, this would fit well in very hot weather. Unfortunately, there is snow on the ground at the moment. Worth a try.
