From a 12 ounce can dated 09/09/19. Sampled on Jan 9, 2020.

It looks like a typical light lager with it's yellow color, great clarity, and quick lasting fizzy white head.

The aroma emits notes of white bread, corn, vegetable oil, and floral hops.

Light body.

The taste is sweet and bready but not all that exciting. A clean finish.

A: Pours a clear pale to medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and faint bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of very thin film covering about 95% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready + cereal grain malts with moderate amounts of corn adjuncts and light to moderate amounts of sweetness. Hints of grassy + spicy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of bready + cereal grain malts and moderate amounts of corn adjuncts that contribute a just shy of moderate amount of sweetness. That is followed by very lights flavors of grassy + spicy hops that contribute a light amount of bitterness which lingers for a short amount of time and finishes clean.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp and clean.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Enjoyable and one of the better examples of craft light lagers from NC brewers. Definitely sessionable and I could easily have a couple of these - might need to keep a few of these in the fridge for the summer when I have to do yard work.
