Staying with the m.o. of Indian wells another pale lager to quench the thirst of those traveling the desert.

Average apperance, dark yellow.

Smell is a little more exciting than a major macro.

Taste is a pleasent crispiness of malt, and finishes slightly sweet.

Mouthfeel- I suppose I would say just a bit this or that side of water. So, average.

Very drinkable, went on a trip to Dove springs and on the way we grabbed up some of this because we knew everyone could drink this brew and enjoy it.

A- Hazey pale straw with large white head that leaves little lacing.

A- Very slight malt sweetness.

T- A very crisp lager. Slightly sweet taste with a low amount of bittering.

M- A light body, heavy carbonation. I was suprised to the amount when I opened the bottle. The body is not as light as other "Light lagers." According to the bottle they use only malted barley, hops, and yeast and knowing the size of the operation I believe that.

D- If this beer was a bit easier to find I think I would keep some on stock to deal with bmc friends. That being said it is quite an enjoyable lager to have for a warm day.

Pint from Naja's Place in Redondo Beach

Pour was a golden brown color with a small white head that diminished quickly

Smell was weak and some yeast hints and that is about it

Taste was nice for a light beer with a little roasted malt

Smooth and went down easy could drink a whole lot of these
