Poured into a Pint Defiance tulip. The body is a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Aromas consist of noble hops, honeysuckle, and bready malt. Flavors consist of the same. The mouthfeel is light bodied, creamy, crisp, dry, and has medium carbonation.

12oz can served in a pint glass. No dates that I see, but it's been in my fridge since around July.

Pours clear golden with a moderate head and a lot of carbonation. Smell is yeasty and bready, primarily.

Taste is very lagery, a little lemon, a lot of yeast, a little toasted malt. Fairly mild, overall.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly dry. Overall, not bad.

A — Pours a clear and bright pale yellow, thin bright white head fades rather quickly.

T — Lightly bitter and sweet, cereal malts again.

M — Easy drinking and crushable, refreshing for sure.

I'm rating this beer relative to its style.

Decided to pick this up after seeing at Fred Meyer. Being the last one, and this being a summer lager while it is currently mid-November, I would say it's safe to assume this particular bottle was pretty dated.

Nice color, looks like a lager but a lot more cloudy and full.
The aroma worried me a little. Typical lager problem; skunky/spritzy scent. Huge turn off. I imagine it was this particular bottle and not this overall product from Silver City.
I was totally surprised by the taste and drinking experience. Not skunky and sour tasting at all, not overly light and boring. Pretty bready/cracker tasting, very pleasantly hopped. Goes down smooth. Has a more filling body than a typical lager.

It may have been 30 degrees outside and thanksgiving plans are in the air, but I still enjoyed this beer immensely and quickly, maybe sneaking in happy thoughts of sunshine and bbq grills. As far as the style goes, this could easily be my go-to lager. I imagine if I tried a fresher bottle or straight from the tap the aroma situation would be significantly better,
