3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow gold. Visible rising bubbles, creamy thin cap of white froth. Leaves a good deal of lacing.
Aroma: Unmistakable yellow beer/pilsner aroma a little skunky and wet grainy. Bright grassy hops.
Taste: Dry pilsner malt. Bitter earthy hops. Finishes mostly dry with a sour twang.
Mouthfeel: Thin with modest carbonation.
Overall: A solid, clean drinking lager. I’m not sure if I would have broken out the ‘hop pun’ on this lager, as the hops weren’t really in the forefront during my encounter with this beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color lager with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fruity hops with lightly sweet malt base is very interesting. Taste is a good mix between some floral and lightly sweet malt base with some fruity hops undertones and a light bitter finish. Body is above average for style with good carbonation. Really enjoyed this one and this is something I would drink more often if it was locally available.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very slightly hazy golden coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall pitch white coloured head. Aroma of fresh hops, crisp caramel, lemons, a touch of hay, grass and a bit of coriander seed. Light-bodied; Nice fresh grassy and herbal hops noticeable with a very light, sweet flavour with a touch of malt, a little citrus flavour and a general airy quality that makes this go down very easily. Aftertaste shows mostly herbal and grassy hop notes with a hint of malt and even less sweetness, with almost no alcohol at all to speak of. Overall, a very nice and refreshing beer with some small hop notes and nothing bitter, assertive or troubling about this beer at all. Get this if you can find it and like lighter beers! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-July-2012 for US$3.95, Release #7, 4.8% ABV.

On tap. Pours with a clear, clean straw yellow hued body with a lasting and lace leaving white head. Aromas are hoppy, malty and clean. Bready, biscuity, nice base malt character. Hops are somewhat generic in their spicy and fruity notes. Flavors are grassy, bready, malty, clean. Light melon and fruit from the hops. Lively carbonation, soft but noticeable bitterness. Clean.
