This beer has a light golden appearance, with only a rim of head. It smells sweet, and the yeast stands out. I could taste a fair amount of malt. The brew was slightly bitter, yet refreshing. It had kind of a woody aftertaste. Mouthfeel was not too acidic. This is a very drinkable beer. It's perfect after a hot day on the water or mowing the yard.

Zea Clearview Golden Lager has a thin, off-white head, a fairly hazy, quite bubbly (etched glass) appearance, and minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is full and pungent- very bready malt and wheat, with a sour, gluten note. Taste is the same, with a strong wheat or wheat noodle aspect. Bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and fluffy, and Zea Clearview Golden Lager finishes flavorful and drinkable. It’s no lager, but I like it.

Thanks to Emily for hooking me up with a Zea's 4-pack!

This one pours a clear yellow color with a small white head.

It has a bit of a fruity pear flavor, clean and crisp with a hop spice.

The flavor is a lot of the same, a slight fruit flavor with a biscuit malt finish. It has a bit of a cider flavor to it overall.

Very easy to drink, crisp, but nothing superbly remarkable. I can see a lot of people looking to try the Zea's custom beers liking this one.

This beer is listed as a kolsch on their menu and is their lightest offering. Clearview has a light wheat color with an average-sized head. Plenty of carbonation here. The aroma is fairly light and clean with just a touch of sweetness and grains. The flavor consists of a light malty body with a dry hop balance. A hint of grain taste is noted throughout and more so in the finish. Overall, this is a very tasty lighter beer with very good drinkability.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with about half a finger of white head that quickly settles to a small ring and leaves some light lacing.

Aroma is mostly floral with some subtle spice notes.

Taste reveals a little bit more malt than the smell, with some bready notes along with some light honey and a somewhat spicy floral character.

Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Clean and refreshing, would be great on a hot day. According to the bottle, the Zea beers are now contract brewed by Heiner Brau, which is interesting because HB's own kolsch wasn't so great but Zea's is pretty decent.
