A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down and left a collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Faint aromas of lemony hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and also has additional notes of bready and grainy malts. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink but there's nothing overly exciting in the smell or taste.

I got a can of this beer from my good friend and old neighbor from the 'Wego. It poured a clear golden with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had biscuit and grain notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with grain and hints of white wine. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a good beer.

This beer a perfectly balanced, refreshing lager that is highly underrated on this site in my humble yet highly locally biased opinion. Great aroma, perfect body, perfect carbonation and not overly sweet.

Pours a golden slightly hazy color. Head quickly dissipates almost no lacing. Has a strong bready, lemony smell. Fizzy mouthfeel with moderate creaminess. Malty and lemony with mild hoppiness. Reminds me slightly of a Sam Adams, but not as strong. Decent beer. You could do a lot worse.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, with a good bit of sweetness. Taste is crisp, malts, light hops, none of the sweetness in the smell, a bit on the mild side. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but nothing special.
