Pours bright gold with a thin white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, lager yeast, biscuit and pineapples. Taste is slightly bitter yet, sweet with lager biscuit notes. Smooth and drinkable, citrus and tropical fruit. Not bad

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2014 Can: very muddled rustic amber color with a nice sized, chunky off white head that lasts forever as a mild skin & collar. Aroma is mildly spicy hops, grain, some lightly baked bread, a faint bit of citrus/lemon, yeast, & faint metallic notes. Taste has lots of lightly sweet cereal grains & baked bread, good amount of lemon-lime, orange rind, fresh grapefruit flesh, slight musty & leafy hop notes with a spicy, almost Saaz-like character. Finish of mild lemon & orange, bready grains, & musty hops. Very nice lager... Could crush this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Straw, a little dusty/dirty, and fiery, thin white frothy head, spotty lacing. Very soft and sweet straw/hay, a touch doughy, smidgen of breadiness. Soft mealy and bready start, hay and straw on the backside. Heavier than most Pale Lagers, and less grassy. Fairly clean. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Perhaps a touch chewy. Sweet hay and straw on the finish. Not a fan of Pale Lagers, but this was pretty clean and a touch bigger than most. Thanks Bill!

Admittedly I don’t very often care for any kind of lagers. The taste just simply isn’t my thing. So that being said, keep that in mind. However, I think this is a ridiculously good beer. Way more worthy than the over all score currently.
Beautiful hoppy aroma, but definitely not over the top. Crisp, Refreshing, but not bitter. I could see myself drinking the hell out of this during the hot summers.
Great Job H&G!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear pale golden with a thin white cap head. The nose is a little biscuity but very leafy/grassy, like a craft pilsner. Tastes the same, though with a slight citrus kick. Very lovely and complex.

Smell is perfumy hops. Fruity and bright. Taste is smooth and refreshing and hoppy but only lightly bittered. Still hoppy for the style. Easy drinking and flavorful. Very good.

12oz can 11/13/13 (Whole Foods-Lamar)-Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of hops, bread, and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more hops. This light bodied brew is pretty darn tasty.
