Mostly clear bright yellow pale body with two fingers of white foam with decently thick lacing as we make our way down the glass. Smell and taste are clones as there is not a lot of nuance, but it pulls off the "beer flavored beer" without macro boating and overly strong adjunct like corn; crisp lager malts, light lemon zest and a whisper of grass with the mild hops, light corn, and light cracker. Taste is more substantial in potency. Feel is crisp, light, thin, smooth and crushably refreshing. One of the best light lagers I have had. Pairs great with summer sausage and cheddar

Pours medium gold, thick frothy head that piles to a bit more than an inch. Very nice nose - light cracker, lemon, straw, very light sweet malt. Taste follows the nose to a T, with a perfect balance of lightly sweet malt, straw, and mild hop presence. Mouthfeel is close to perfection - crisp, refreshing, repeatable. Everything you'd want in a light lager.

Poured from a can (15Jun2020) into a pint glass

L: pours a slightly turbid straw gold (srm ~3-4), good sized white head with large bubbles. Moderate amount of visible carbonation, slightly hidden

S: nice, classic lite lager nose - sweet corn and slight malt aroma. Not much from the hops but there’s a bit more noble/grassy character here than a standard lite beer. Takes a backseat to the corn and malt however

T: delivers exactly what you’d expect, a significant improvement on the adjunct lagers I remember fondly. Appropriately thin flavor, led again by corn and malt. A bit more hop presence than I anticipated based on the nose, and certainly more than I recall from macro brews. Bitterness comes through fairly soon, lingers with a medium/medium + finish

F: light, thin, watery body, medium + carbonation, incredibly easy drinking like water, slightly drying

O: broken record but again exactly what I expected, a refreshing and very easy drinking lite lager with a bit more character and flavor than the macro counterparts

I think this might the best light beer I’ve ever had. It’s very crushable but has some hop complexity when it comes to bitterness and flavor . It’s light bodied but I would not describe it as thin at all for a light beer...there’s more malt presence there as compared to your typical session IPA

A: The beer is relatively clear light yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down and left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of noble hops are present in the nose (grass seems to stand out in particular) along with hints of pilsener malts.
T: The taste follows the smell and has light to moderate flavors of grassy hops along with underlying notes of pilsner malts with slight hints of corn.
M: It feels light-bodied, clean and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation with some dryness in the finish.
O: This lager is exceptionally easy to drink and has pleasant aromas and flavors of malts and hops.
