3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at VCBW Festival 2016, pours a clear pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma is very herbaceous, with lots of grassiness, herbal hops and crisp crackery notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of herbaceousness upfront, followed by grassy hops and crisp biscuity malt. Quite a lot of depth for a lager. Very nice stuff.

Solid lager, quite leafy, but really nothing to give it an edge. Lot better Lagers out there.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Acton Wine and Spirits.
Pours a slightly hazy deep yellow color with a smallish bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Citrus earthy mineral spicy aromas and little else on the nose. Citrus and orange fruitiness in the flavor, lightly herbal or earthy . Faint bready maltiness, lingering hop bitterness. Somewhat reminds me of Tang at times. Different take on a lager interesting, but not enough for me to buy again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pour from Andover Liquors. Aroma is floral hops over European malt base. Appearance is very pale yellow with greenish tinge (sort of urine-like) with trace sparkle, 1/2 finger-width fleeting white head with fair lacing. Taste is traditional pilsner malty sweetness with fruity hops, but both are mild. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture and average to lively carbonation and crisp finish. Overall, a decent enough idea with hints of what it could be, but is pretty pedestrian.

Canned at Tin Can. Nothing special. Tad hoppier than your average lager. Not sure if have it again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Medium gold, average white head. Grainy aroma, faint fruity undertones. The palate reflects the nose exactly. Moderately bitter finish. Underwhelming considering its name.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can. Pours a pale yellow with a thick white head. Watery, grassy and bland. Not offensive but not all that good either. Meh.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crystal blonde, well-carbonated, and with a decent, creamy wheaty head. Leafy hoppy with some greenness to it and light, fresh-milled grain nose. Watery grain body with muted hoppyness and some green notes. Sourdough and mild tannin grain finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. Aroma is bready, chalky candy, earthy hops, minerally. Pours hazy golden with a thick white pillowy head with good retention; leaves some creative lacework. Taste has a nice medium-level bitterness alongside a mild fruity sweetness (kind of cantaloupe-like) with flavors of wheat cracker, light hay. Nice American-style pils.

355ml can. Pale straw yellow with a small creamy white cap. Nose has straw, grains, bit of fruit. Taste has grains and straw, citrus and some fruitiness. Grassy aftertaste with light hops hanging around. Drinks alright.
