look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: bronze color with a 2 finger head that dissipates pretty quick and leaves decent lacing. Appears more like a pilsner

S: Malty, fruity hops, subtle smell- nothing strong

T: very smooth sessionable ale that has a slight hop bitterness to it. Good balance and easy to drink

M: clean, refreshing feel that drinks like a light lager or pilsner, but tastes much better than the typical light lager

O: This is a great summer beer and comes in cans so is great for camping- especially in the Texas heat

12 oz can into a pint glass. Thanks gtermi!

A - Slightly hazy blonde/yellow body with a one finger white head. Decent lacing and retention.

S - Lemons, biscuity malt, grassy and floral hops.

T - Same as the nose. Starts off with biscuits, lemon, and light floral hops.

M - Crisp and well carbonated. Drink ability is quite high.

O - Solid blonde, albeit boring.
