Bottle... Clear, straw-colored lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. Citrusy aroma with notes of lemon peel and a whisper of chicken broth. Malty, sweet flavor up front followed by very litght bitterness from modest hopping. Lemon, tea and light grapefruit. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish.

Fresh bottle. Pale yellow with initial white fizzy head. Gazzy overcarbonated, with metallic in aftertaste. The lagerish taste is overwhelmed by the process, much like a macro.

Pale golden colour. The nose is lightly grassy with a touch of pale malt character. Very fresh-smelling with a little bit of wheaty spice as well. Clean yeast. No sulphur but a nice fresh character. Solid lawnmower beer.

Bottle. Mildly sour barley malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with giant head. Sweet barley malt and moderately bitter weedy flavor. Not so good.

An average score is 2.75, and this is an above average lager. Pours canary, with a good head. Aroma of malt and slight hops. Tastes malty, with some slight honey and citrus at the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Outstanding for the style - deep yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma and taste feature some grassy hops and a touch of sweetness - excellent alternative to BMC.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear gold with a medium to thick white head. Sweet corn and grain on the nose. Weird grain. Strange, almost chalky bitterness. Sweet and grainy on the finish.

Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Thanks John. Pours clear deep gold with white head. The aroma is solid for the style with ample amounts of floral and spice hop notes to go along with a malty sweet backbone. The taste has up front spicy, floral and lemon like hop bitterness that refreshes and gets your attention. It then smooths out and thins out to midway. As the finish approaches notes of sweet malts and touch of lightly roasted malts round things out. The hops persist into the after taste. If I were to have a refreshing lager on a hot day this would be a nice choice.

12 oz. bottle as a trade bonus from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, straw, sugar, corn, grains, and grass. Flavor of pale malts, sugar, mineral notes, grains and corn, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a grassy, mineral mouthfeel. Not a whole lot to it, but certainly one of the better pale lagers I’ve had.
