Excellent, light lager - this is a go-to when you're not feeling a high maintenance beer and just want something low key.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear medium golden pour with massive fluffy white head. Great lacing.

S: Citrus and light malts. Lemony.

T/F: Light malts... mildly sweet. Lemon citrus and slightly grassy. Mild fruit. Light bodied and with creamy carbonation. More lemongrass at the finish.

O: A simple citrusy lager. Easy drinking... nothing special, but at 4% it's one you could drink all day.

Amber color and clear. Good starting head but it settles quickly to a thin layer of minute bubbles. Some spots and streaks for lace.

Caramel and light blackberry are the two initial smells I get. Low hop, low sweetness, but both are present.

The taste is sweeter with more caramel than the smell. Very much a traditional American amber. The hop is muted but balancing. Rich body with an ample carbonation level. The aftertaste is short with a bit of brownish malt toast.

Poured from the can into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Deep copper amber brown wit a touch of brass gold edged hue for the body color. Fluffy toped white head, easy three fingers on the pour, with a small settling crown. Looks like a good solid looking marzen.

Aroma continues a nice trend. Small amounts of toast and fine like sugar caramel like malt. Hints slightly roast but not burnt too. Clean presence with soft hint of herbal possible hop. Very nice.

Palate comes a little less exciting. Wet bodied and powdery like tasting malts. Clean but touches of mild caramel but with a sticky yeast and pasty mouthfeel. Not a lot of malt depth going on here, maybe a bit of wet and water chocolate perhaps.

Hinted like it was the Yuengling killer but not living up to the expectation's either.

12 fl. oz. can without packaging codes or freshness dating
$2 @ Shop Rite, 2800 Fox Street, Philadelphia, PA

Notes via stream of consciousness: Pours a slightly hazy orange/copper colored body beneath a finger thick head of white that holds fairly well but then eventually drops to nothing more than a standard collar. Hopefully there will be some lacing left behind as I drink it. The aroma is malty with a hint of mineral, some light caramel, some light fruit, and brightly floral hops. The flavor has a touch of tartness to it, and the fruitiness combines with what seems like almost burnt sugar rather than caramel. I'm not sure if they're using it, but it's reminiscent of Vienna malt to me. The floral character remains along with a little bit of spiciness and some background herbal notes, and lingers in the finish with a dollop of the sugary malt. It's nicely balanced by a firm bitterness though, and finishes mostly dry. Medium-light in body and crisp.

Pours clear, amber in color with half inch head. Taste is toasted malt, big caramel, and grain. Medium-light bodied, moderate carbonation, and sweet. Maybe not the most complex beer but very tasty. This is one I could see myself throwing back several of because it is so exceptionally smooth. I will get this one again.
