Bottle from the brewery store.
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a decent sized bubbly white that persists forever. Aromas of flowers and spice with a light crackery pilsner malt base. Lots of spicy hop flavor with a light to moderate level of bitterness. Light grainy water cracker malty base. Light to moderate body with a moderate level of carbonation. Reminds me a lot of a Czech pilsner but the body is a bit lighter. Nice drinker on a hot day.

VT Brewfest sample.

A-Pours cloudy yellow. Can't tell much about the head from the sample.

S-Overall, a mellow aroma. Grassy hops, light citrus hops. Cracker malt.

T-Grassy and a bit of basic hop zest. Light lager yeast flavor. Pilsner malt is pleasantly dry.

M-Light bodied. Drinks easy. Hit what they aimed for here.

O-A decent lighter Lager.
