Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, crystal-clear, golden coloring with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of very subtle toasted grains and custard sweetness. Very light aromas. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with a toasted grain overtone, and subtle crème highlights. Tangy throughout. Smooth, mid-bodied, with a grainy and toasted aftertaste. The finish is effervesced, with a sweet linger. Different take on the style, but tasty and refreshing throughout.

crisp, clean, very light. very easily drinkable beer. had almost a fruity taste in the middle of the process, very nice finish with a light after taste. this beer is very different than many of the other beers that were on tap at the tap, a very good compliment to the entire tap portfolio.

Light golden pour with nearly no head to speak of and no carbonation visibly present. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy, there is tiny carbonation present. Pretty much null aroma, some grainy notes. Just a slight sweetness, otherwise tastes like a standard macro lager. Not much hop presence, but there isn't much to balance out. Obviously very drikable, a beer for the masses. Actually not bad and pretty standard for the style.
