3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of resin and orange citrus from the hops, as well as some biscuit. The flavor also has a good amount of bitterness. I get some lightly toasted malt, as well as some pine, resin and orange citrus. There is also some biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

You know, for a premium lager, this isn’t so darn bad. No obvious adjuncts in this one, for starters. Is it light in aroma and flavor? Of course. Would I still take this over your typical pale lager, ounce for ounce, almost every time? Yes.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear caramel colored with a thin frothy head. Nose of earthy toffee and musty caramel with some earthy herbal hop tones. Nice flavor of clean light toast, some light hop bitterness, and a cheeky little floral citric hoppiness. Not shabby!

16oz can, 4pk. Silver & blue label. Pours clear 24K gold color. White foam. Tastes crisp and refreshing. Flavors of honey, Munich malts, malted barley, light fruit, distant white grape essence with a hint of dry lychee sugar. Aroma of cold biscuits, pale malts. The best beer of summer! (3366)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4-pack of cans purchased on business trip to NC. Smooth, straw-pale, crisp lager with very slight aroma and barely-discernible bitterness. This is definitely a (very) refreshing beer, and it’d be excellent on a scorching hot day. That said, it never really peaks on the tongue. The sensation (or lack thereof) is almost surprising. The flavor simply never builds.
Not a bad beer by any stretch, but If it were up to me - I’d increase the Nelson Sauvin hops in the aroma, and bump up the Targets in the bitterness. Doing so would take this from pedestrian to above average.

Can. Pours a clear crisp golden with ample frothy white head. Aroma is some malt sweetness and grass, a light floral note is detected. Taste is an interesting combo of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Very refreshing crisp, clean and sessionable. Worth mowing the lawn and using one or two of these as your reward!
