About 1 month within enjoy by date (8/28). Poured into pils glass.
Creamy doughy malt aroma. Very soft lightly spicy hop.
Smaller but dense white head. Very clear and golden.
More of a blended drink with all the flavor running together and more difficult to ascertain distinct flavors. A solid malt base and hop flavors and then a rather mild bitterness running through the whole affair. Hints of sweetness. Hop taste and soft bitterness lay on the tongue for a moderately long finish.
Slightly big feel for a lager. Kinda' uninspiring.

Appearance: light yellow in color with a 2" head that lasted a while. Some moderate lace painted the glass.

Smell: some light grass and lemons is hard to detect but noticeable.

Taste: a mild grainy malt base with some grass, a bit of lemon, and a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: light in body. Very crisp throughout. Relatively clean aftertaste.

Overall: this beer was very light, refreshing, and easy to quaff on a hot summer day. A bit mild in flavor but it hit the spot.
