Gold to dark gold color with a slight haze. Triple pour to allow the head to settle. 3D clumps of lace throughout the tasting.

Mild nose of flowery raw barley grain and light malt.

There's a pleasant blend of lightly fermented pale malt sweetness and a prickly hop. There's also some sourness to the finish but the aftertaste is predominately bitter and long-lasting. Solid body with moderate carbonation. Overall, refreshing yet not a lawnmower beer.

Pours a cloudy golden straw color with visible carbonation. The pour yielded a massive frothy head with a mushroom cap that threatened to spill over. Excellent retention and lots of lacing.
The aroma highlights the malts. Toasted and biscuity grains and very bready in general. Some herbal hops develop midway; they have a slight pungent quality that is almost cheese like. Also, there is a touch of melon.
The taste yields moderate sweetness from the malt. Bready and toasty with a mild and clean hops bitterness. The hops flavors provide a grassy and peppery balance. Silky, smooth and sweet finish that also contains some citrus. There is some lingering dryness and bitterness.
Light to medium bodied, crisp and finely balanced. The initial smoothness of the malts is soon contrasted by the prickle of the hops. The carbonation is moderately light. Very easy to drink.
I’m not an expert on the style, however, I’m growing to appreciate the different lager styles this brewery makes.

L: Mildly turbid, super head retention, beautiful lace. Slightly pale yellow color
S: Beautiful honey graham cracker malt, with a nice wet plant. pepper, and vegetal hop presence. Pretty on point for the style
T: Repeat of the nose, only difference is the hops shine through a little bit stronger here than on the nose
F: A bit heavier than I prefer lagers, very crisp, high carbonation, a tad astringent, and decently drinkable
O: Actually a very solidly crafted lager, something I am very fond of. I am quite impressed with this one, things are well balanced and delicious.

On tap at Beer Market in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a partially clear, partially hazy golden yellow- it looks like sunshine, and it looks great. There's a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like fruity yeast, pilsner malt, cereal grain, lemon, and grassy hops.

This is really quite delicious. It's surprisingly full bodied for the lower ABV. It's only mildly hoppy, with a nice malt backbone- slightly sweet and lots of pilsner malt flavor. There's a little bit of fruitiness, both from hops and yeast- stone fruit and lemon, mainly.

This is light bodied, crisp and very clean, with a surprisingly fullness for how light it actually is.

I love this style, and this is definitely a worthy stab at it. I'd probably want it to be a little hoppier, but it's good as it, anyway.

12 oz. can. Hazy golden body with an ample white head. Smells of strong German hops, even with a little fruitiness. Pilsner, cereal, and a little corn aroma? Tastes of spicy hops up front. Cereal malt. Kinda sweet, surprisingly. Spicy hop finish, but light. Again, has a light bit of corn. Low carbonation and kinda creamy. Has a nice bit of body considering. Very pleasant beer and not what I expected. I don't have Keller's very often.

Moderate pour yields a one + inch white head over a nice, white, ever so slightly hazy body with nice lacing. Nose of very lightly toasted bread, grass, and slight hops. Taste follows somewhat with a bit of spice, crisp and dry. Good mouthfeel and overall a pretty nice job from Burlington, VT.

Poured from a can dated 1/12/17 into a small glass mug.
A - Lemon yellow sun, clarity is outstanding, a slow steady migration of carbonation. All capped with a
quick to depart snow white cap. A bit of delicate lacing provides proof. Visually impressive.
S - Light grains, a bit of warm white bread rising. Their are some herbal notes, from hops Hersbrucker maybe, some forsythia, and fresh cut grass. Sweet notes courtesy of the base malts.
T - A bit of honeysuckle, lemongrass, delightful graininess. Stays old world with just enough hop bitterness. The flavor stays in a narrowly defined, superbly executed lane, Strike right down the middle.
M - Dances across the palate, not La LA Land, but Fred and Ginger classy feel. A mild body and excellent carbonation provide a dry finish that leaves only desire for more.
O - This offering is a treat, the brewers did the style justice, a bit Americanized but not to heavy handed in any way. The water profile, could be softened up, removing a bit of the edges, That said this is a wonderfully executed offering from Zero Gravity.
