Poured a bright gold with an appealing white head leaving plenty of lacing and bubbles dancing for the drinker's pleasure. Smell is of grain and foliage, overall earthy. Taste expands with a deliciou,s and complex hop profile. Mouthfeel is a bit dry and extremely refreshing. Overall, a great lager.

Pours a clear light yellow color with very little head. Scents has that great grainy pilsner smell. Taste is light, grainy, and slightly dry as to be expected. After taste is slightly chalky and dry. Light and easy drinking beer but could be better. Personally I was expecting something a little better from Left Hand.

On tap at Varga Bar in Philadelphia on 8/4/12, served in a shaker.

Pour: Clear light straw yellow with a finger of white head. Leaves great lacing.

Smell: Bready sweetness bursts out, along with a light grassy hoppyness. Can already tell the mouth on this is going to have a biscuit profile.

Taste: Very bready with a grassy/floral bitterness. Some light citrus in there as well. Entire flavor lingers.

Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing. Light bitterness lingers very well.

Overall: Refreshing but forgettable.
