I have had this brew a hundred times but finally decided to review it.
This one is a transparent golden color with a small head that will diminish.
Smell is crisp and of hops.
The taste is mild of hops.
Mouthfeel is crisp, and clean. The carbonation adds a nice tingle.
Drinkability is high; this is a very drinkable brew light on pallet and on the stomach also.

OK aroma, nice head. Malty and dry. Not finishable. However I agree with John that it is better than macro lagers, and I take it aimed at them. Thin mouthfeel. Sampling with John, Murtyman and the brewmaster Jim McDermott. Possibly weakest of the group, but some flavour.

The beer pours a pale gold color with a thick frothy white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a grainy, almost straw like scent. It's light in the hops department, but I assume the use of all malt here. The taste is decent as well. It has a light and grainy pale/pilsner malt flavor that's easily drinkable. It goes down like a typical American style lager, although I wish it had more in the hops department. The mouthfeel is average. It is a low bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a pretty good beer, but I'm not sure why a micro brewery would waste it's time brewing an Americanized lager. Isn't there enough of this stuff on the shelf already?

Though the catagory is American style lager this is a far cry from any macro often associated with that label. What this is, is a light but full flavored lager well suited for summer. Light straw colored, light biscuity, grassy hop aroma and flavor. Crisp, clean and fresh on tap. Finishes dry.

Draught at the Brewery. This beer poured a pale yellow color. There was pretty much no carbonation, head, lacing or aroma. There was pretty much no taste here also. A very good clone of some non-descript light beer. Very close to a glass of water. Definitely brewed for the Bud Light crowd that would never drink anything else.
