look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

This poured out as a clear looking yellow color with a white head on top. The retention is decent and but leaves no lacing. The smell of the beer is grainy, its got a touch of grass in there too. The taste of the beer is earthy, subtle sweetness and more grassy hops. The mouthfeel is light bodied, easy drinking very sessionable with a decent carbonation. Overall this beer is pretty good for what it is. Nothing too special but if you like the style it's a good choice.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tall pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pale, straw yellow color with thick, lacy head that persists for several minutes.

Aroma: Underwhelming with slight hints of floral aromas.

Flavor: Somewhat bland hops with grass and straw flavors.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, minimal bitterness with lots of carbonation. The carbonation lingers more than the flavors.

Overall, this lager is not very distinctive from the domestic mass-produced standards. It's easily drinkable, but probably should come in 30 pack cans.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip

A: pours a very light very clean golden, with a finger of white head. A steady stream of carbonation bubbles can be seen rising from the center of the bottom of the glass... Nice lacing.

S: smells perfumey to me at first... Alot of Lager yeasty aroma with a kiss of floral hops.

T: Bready lager yeast, clean crisp bready lager yeast with a bit of sweetness in the middle and a touch of bitterness on the end.

M: on the light side of medium bodied, this one is smooth and lush with creamy carbonation and a crisp finish with a bite of bitterness that lingers for a moment.

O: not a huge fan of this one, I'm not a huge lager guy, and I guess I'm spoiled living near jacks Abby and all, but this was a bit lack luster for me.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pint
A: Aggressive pour yields 2/3 finger of white head with good retention. Clear, just slightly hazy straw-gold. Haze is the only negative. Great head!
S: Crisp, slightly citrus herbal hop. Delightful. No off-aromas. Nice biscuit balance.
T: Clean malt backbone with puckeringly grapefruity hops. No off-flavors, just a hoppy lager. Maybe a bit more malt character would be nice.
M: Quite dry. Prickly and puckering.
O: Pure warm day enjoyment. I love it. I'd love another and would buy 6. Great session beer - full-flavored for being so light at 4.7%

A very even lager with nice hop complexion, its smell is a light citrus and its body is perfectly light mostly clear with a thin line hew of yeast. The taste and mouth feel are where this beer excels. a perfect delivery of the expectations set by the nose and look of this beer excellen!

This was a 12 oz bottle poured into a mug.

It pours very clear yellow. Excellent clarity. Smells like a lager... What can I say. The taste is very crisp and refreshing and this would be great beer for the summer. I am not a huge lager fan so please don't take this review too seriously. As far as the style of beer the body is good but I actually prefer beers that are bigger bodied. Overall I would probably go for other lagers and save some $$.
