(best by date of May '15 - poured into a balloon)

A: crystal-clear, light-bright amber gold color... huge, poofy, mess of white foam, almost like it was bottle-conditioned

S: wet sidewalk, wet park bench, perhaps lightly ashy... lightly-burnt toast, faint... more or less a weak, bland, familiar crisp macro lager scent... scant tannic apple notes... decent aromas, but as silent as the TV with the MUTE on

T: mild, clean maltiness with a gritty, papery overtone and subtle toasted grain finish... quite clipped and dry... quite dry... phantom kiss of sweetness up front... only enough hop to balance - perhaps a muted, vegetal tone to them - could be in combo with mineral notes from the water and/or fermentation

M: mellow carbonation - barely a tingle... hint of a rubbery elasticity to the body, awash in perimeter foam crystals

O: if you would've told me this was below the gluten threshold, I would've went "oh..."... tastes like a fine, malty everyman lager to me... preferable alternative to the slough of sorghum beverages that still mostly fail to taste like cerveza

Served in a tumbler

A - It is golden in color and clear. It is topped with four inches of fluffy white head.

S - The smell is sweet and faint with a slight metallic smell.

T - It starts out tasting a lot like a European pale lager. But I don't get that skunky or metallic taste. This beer is actually better than most Euro lagers I have tried. It has a clean finish.

M - Moderately thin but not watery

O - It 's actually not bad. I was expecting something horribly and am pleasantly surprised. That said, it is not a great beer. It is better than an adjunct lager so celiac disease sufferers can enjoy that.
