12oz bottle. Pours nice light gold color with a small head that quickly dissipates. Nice aroma, mellow grass and grains with a small amount of citrusy hops. Nice bitter start with a slight toasted bread taste. Leaves a nice bitter flavor on the back of the sides. Lighter body crisp, smooth and dry.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours golden, not much of a head. Tastes like a lager. Not bad, but in all honesty, I still don’t see paying premium pricing for something that the likes of Coors, Bud and Miller can do for a lot cheaper. I mean, c’mon, regardless of how much barley goes into it (vs. adjuncts like rice and corn) it’s still a fucking lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a bright golden with a large white head. Aroma is grainy malt and a bit of metal. Flavor is a nice clean lager malt and not much of a hop presence. Finish is clean and quickly gone. Probably more body than mass produced stuff but still a little bland.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Aroma has a fairly malt forward character with some cracker and biscuit as well as hints of caramel and honey. Hint of a sulfur character but it blows off fairly quickly. Light herbal hop character. Pours a brilliantly clear golden orange with a small, slightly thin white head that has surprisingly nice retention for how small it was. Lingers nicely on the edges. Flavor starts out with a nice sweet maltiness with some cracker as well as honey and light caramel notes. Moderate hop flavor with notes of light citrus, grassy notes along with some spicy floral and vegetal notes. Moderate bitterness. Lingering bitterness and light maltiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a very tasty lager beer. Fairly crisp but with lots of nice maltiness and hop character. Very flavorful but not as light as a typical American lager.
