Clear light golden body with minimal head and lacing. Fairly strong pale malt, barely and grain base with cracker and light honey presence. Nice hop complexity with sweet corn, honey for flavor which is a lot less malty than the aroma forboded. Light body and moderate carbonation and crisp finish.

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, straw colored body. The head sticks around for a while and leaves nice lace on the glass.

S - Musty, herbal hop aroma with some grainy malt.

T - Clean, mild malt with light hop presence and little else.

M - Mdium body, moderate carbonation, and a well balanced finish.

D - Nicely done, it is very well balanced and drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with a fluffy and chunky three fingers of white foam.

Smell: Nice spicy hops and sweet crackery malt backbone. Simple but inviting.

Taste: Follows the nose with a light crackery malt, sharp, spicy hops, some yeast and a bit of tangy lemon. Fairly sweet overall.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp and clean with a creamy finish.

Overall, this is a straight forward but fantastic pale lager. Light but flavorful, crisp, refreshing and completely satisfying. A great summer session beer. As the label states, "This is beer at it's most basic". In this case, that's a good thing.
