Bottle, kindly shared by gunnar. Pale yellow colour, moderate white head. Sweetish aroma, herbal hops. Fairly decent flavour of herbal hops. A pale lager better than average.

had this at an outside bar at the beach. paired with a new england style lobster roll. poured into a 16 oz plastic cup. golden yellow with nice head of foam. little lacing and no retention. aroma was of faint fruits/pine. Taste was slightly sweet with a hint of citrus. mouth feel was slightly watery but smooth. very refreshing on a hot summer day

Surprisingly tasty, smooth, clean, crisp lager. Nice golden color, small amount of head. Clean notes of malt and grain, fainter hints of fruit. Clean finish without much mouthfeel, carbonation lightens as drink warms. Nice easy beer to drink and will definitely quench the thirst.

Wow. Great surprise. Did not expect the taste, especially since it has a lower ABV than I am used to. Would definately try this one again. Wish I had more than this one bottle.

Served on tap into a 16 oz (473 ml) conical pint glass.
A: Pours a crystal clear, golden color with a one quarter inch, white head with virtually no retention nor lacing.
S: Aromas of grasses and grain with a cherrywood note.
T: Dry. Pale malt and grainy flavors again with a cherry note, like the nose. Crisp and refreshing.
M: Light bodied with light, champagne bubble carbonation.
O: This is a refreshing, thirst quencher. A nice example of that end of the style.
