Bottle is at all the grocery stores and usual haunts... Pours polished straw golden with a nice white head and retention.. Flavor and aroma are both grainy with hints of lemony zest hoppiness.. very drinkable.. Nice.

Pours a hazy straw color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and good lacing. Smells of Euro yeast, pale malt, slight citrus hops, hint of earthiness, slight floral hops, and wheat. Fits the style of an American Pale Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp with a high carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, hint of sweet malt, slight wheat, grass, hint of floral hops, slight Euro yeast, hint of citrus hops, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, decent body, and decent blend.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a big two finger white head that settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A crisp, bready, and juicy aroma with a scent of biscuit and citrus. Pils malt scent of biscuit, straw, grains, and cracker with lager yeast. Citrus hop scent of orange peel and lemon zest. Hints of grass and honey sweetness. A pretty nice aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a bready and juicy balanced taste with notes of biscuit and citrus. Pils malt notes of biscuit, cracker, straw, and grains with lager yeast. Citrus hop notes of orange peel and lemon zest. Also some grassy hop notes. A touch of honey sweetness as well. A very nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Crisp, clean, and fairly juicy.

Overall: A pretty good hopped up Euro style Lager. Nice balance of pils malt and citrus hop notes.

Clear yellow gold with a finger of thick, bright white, long-lasting head. Relatively clean lager aroma with light noble hops. Super sweet, lemony, corn bread flavor. Light to medium bodied with low carbonation. Subpar.

still sipping here. was afraid it would be dry hopped bitterness barely masked with malt.

so far so good. nice mouth feel. good nose for a lager. I suspect this was marketed towards the indy outdoor western masses of I don't want a bud or miller crowd. but i don't want a hoppy mess ipa.

right on will continue to pluck away on this six pack with glee.

On-tap served in a pint glass at O'glee, Bangkok.

Clear gold straw in color, it comes with thick fluffy white head that stands with great retention before slowly subsiding to an eternal foamy crown and leaving plenty of lacing patch and spot here and there.

Mild aroma of bready/biscuity malt and grain, it is nicely wrapped up with hop scents ranging from citrus, orange peel, lime, herbal, floral, and grassy.

The taste kicks off by hop with its crisp citrus, orange peel, lime, herbal, and grassy notes. Then it is pils malt lending its breadiness and cleaniness while hop interferes in the same time by a modest touch of grassy bitterness.

Light to medium body with some good crisp and moderate lively carbonation through the palate, quite refreshing and smooth, finish is clean and dry.

This hoppy Lager is light, clean, crisp, and refreshing. It is very drinkable and good as a starter.
