Drinking this at my local Harris Teeter Pub while eating a nice slice of pizza.
Poured from a tap into a pint glass.
Looks ever so slightly hazy with a nice one inch foamy head that dropped to a thick cap and some light lacing.
Smells lightly bready, floral and lightly spicy, with a slight touch of lemon.
Taste follows the nose nicely with a nice malt backbone.
Mouth feel is medium for the style with a nice clean finish.
Overall a very nice Lager that I would definitely order again.
Cheers!

This is a very nice lager for summer consumption. Very refreshing and there is just a hint of citrus, at least to my tongue. Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass it formed a little more than a 1/4” head. The head dissipated quickly, but left a ring of small bubbles around the outside of the glass. I would seek this beer again and seriously suggest you try it if you have never had it. Enjoy!

Picked up a four pack of this local lager at The Dispensary in Apex. I had forgotten how good their selection is. This pours an almost uncomfortably pale color with lots of visible carbontion and a instantly evaporating bone white head. Nose is kind of a sour mash melange.

Taste is balanced with mild but tasty hops and broad, caramel malts that mostly works well with a thin, moderate texture that tamps the bubbles down and creates smoothness. Very light in flavor and body. Good thing it's a tall boy. Nice summer drinking beer.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy bright white head that reduces to a large patch (covering about 85% of the surface of the beer) of thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of cereal grain malts with a hint of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of cereal grain malts with a light amount of corn adjunct sweetness. That is followed by a very light flavor of grassy hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness which fades away pretty quickly.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp upfront with a clean finish.

O: Easy to drink and refreshing, this would be a great beer for doing something outdoors on a hot NC summer day... I could easily see this being a lawnmower beer. Alcohol is extremely well hidden and this beer is quite sessionable.

Very pale gold with a quickly fading white head. The aroma is grain and a slightly sour smell with some lemon and hops. The taste is light and grainy with a mild sweetness and a slightly bitter finish. Good carbonation and a clean finish.
