Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. Sweet biscuity malts in the nose with light notes of straw. Medium sweet flavor, some nice doughy bread, light bitter straw, some white sugar. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty clean finish, more sweet, white bread malts, mild bitterness. Not too complex. Very easy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left very light lace. The aroma is weak malt along with some restrained grassy hops. The flavor is malt followed by some grassy hops with some mild-moderate bitterness. Ever-so-slightly sweet. A nice bready flavor emerges in the aftertaste. Crisp at the finish and spot on for the style. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz Bottle, shared at RIFT. Gentle, soft light hoppy aroma. Flavors were very clean and light, but there was a lack of snappy, fresh, crispness to the beer, either in pils malt or hops. It had a certain slickness to it that I could never get over. Fresh and clean, but not stunning, unfortunately.

I drank this in a hotel room and had to drink from a clear plastic cup, came from a 22 oz. bottle I got at a package store in Enfield, CT. Paid $4.33. Nose was cereal grains, malt and some mild hops. The bottle had time to warm on my drive and check- in to the hotel and I got to say, the flavor was nice. Very good balance between malt and hops, a short, crisp finish. Lots of grass notes. Decent flavor here. I would buy and drink again if I’m looking for a lighter summer beer.
