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.

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.

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.
