7/18/2014. On tap at the brewery. Meh... light golden color with a white head. Everything with this beer seem light. Aromas, flavors... very bland

Can - Not much hops on this beer, leans more towards the malty sweet side. Mostly a bland and uninspiring taste to it.

can; a golden lager; light gold color; musty aroma; bitter, noble hop and a very light malt flavor; a crisp, clean lager

Cybercat (3227) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Pours a clear wan yellow with a thick buff head. Aroma is crisp and malty with an underpinning of pear. Crisp flavor is typical of a lager - this could be a good "gateway" beer to wean people off the industrial swill. Texture is smooth and lively. A lager with backbone.

DrSilverworm (6027) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2014
12oz can, from Perfect Pour. Pours a clear golden color. Thin ring of white head. Couple loose bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lightly soft carbonation. A light roughness to the texture. Bready malt, light bit of corn. Moderate sweet taste. Light bitter. Light bit of pepperiness to it. Not a bad lager. Pretty refreshing and clean. Satisfying light sweetness to it typical of a helles. Not much to it, either, though. Could be a bit smoother too, for a 4.5% craft lager.

On draft. Rich yellow color. Burst of lager flavor that yields to a clean dryness. Could drink 3 of these and think I’d had one.

Tap @ Sedona. Light gold pour with a modest head. Mild lemon and a bit of grass on the fairly sedate nose. Some husky grain, more lemon flavor. Sheet cake. Really crisp, clear finish. Light body, high carbonation. A very pleasant summer drinker.

Gold pour at GABF. White head, not much lacing. Corn, grains, cereal, light lemons, flinty note at the end.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours a fairly clear golden appearance with an off white head. Cracker, lightly grainy, herbal, a touch floral aroma. Light lemon, a touch husky, lightly floral, a bit earthy, slightly toasty flavor. Not hard to drink but a bit boring.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Draft at GABF 2013. Pale malt expressed as biscuits, crackers, faint sourdough bread. Yeast and water give is a mineral / vitamin smell to go with faint huskiness. Comparable to Full Sail Session Lager, which i also a little husky, mineraly and sometimes eggy / sulfuric. Medium high acid, frothy carbonation, enjoyable dryness with some lemon oil hop showing through after it warms a bit.
