Can from Bruisin Ales. Pours slight hazy gold with a slight creamy near white head. Smells lightly fruity with some light malt. Med body. It is lightly fruity and slightly bitter. Moderately bready. Pretty Kolsch like. Finishes spicy/bitter. Not your typical premium lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can, big thanks to Alicia M for sharing! Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Dot or two of lace. Kind of a sweet, corn, caramel malt nose. Light body. Smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Lightly dry. Aroma is corn, bread, caramel, light spicy peppery hop. Pretty decent balance to it, impressive flavor for a 3% beer. Light to moderate bitter taste, light sweet, more dry taste. Pretty impressive easy-drinking lager. Great flavor for how incredibly light this is. Closest thing I have to a light lager like this in Cincinnati is Cisco’s Sankaty Light, and this is way better than that. Much better malt balance, good full flavor to it.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Strange malty and grainy sweet aroma. The flavor is grainy and corny-ish. Not that good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to pint. Looks good; copper with nice head and carbonation. Smells solid; doughy with some hop notes. Tastes alright, but nothing special. Not a bad lager, but not a great one either.
