Light straw color, white head dies quickly. Aroma is grainy, musty. Taste is grainy, a little bready. Great body for a lager like this. Overall a good lawnmower beer, but not great by any means.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very clear yellow pour with barely visible wisps of clearish head. Very sweet and grainy on both the nose and flavor, but not syrupy sweet. More profound flavor than a bud or genny cream. Ever so slight pils hop bit on the finish. Decent alternate for the bmc crowd, but not something I want to drink again.

12 oz bottle. Can pretty much count on NB to make beers that are spot on for the style. This just isn’t my style. Maybe all the IPA’s have made the light lagers just meh. Pours a pale golden color. Nice tight white head and very active carbonation. Taste is clean and crisp but not much in the flavor department. German hops quite subdued when compared to the ’merican versions. Might reach for one after mowing the lawn or on the beach. Might. Not much better than your average mass produced beers.

Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours clear yellow color with a nearly abesent aroma. Maybe a light grain. Corny, grassy flavor with a super dry finish. Super light and super easy drinking summer style beer. Not bad.

It poured a clear pale yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was of yeast, light grain notes, light lemon and spice. The taste was similar with a light body, crisp and dry aftertaste.

Draught. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate white head on there. Nose has some corn elements to it as well as some slight wheat. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately corn-filled, but only OK at an overall evaluation. Really just reminds me of a run-of-the-mill lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ BBQ. Clear golden yellow pour with white foam. Nose is kind of heavy on the popcorn...a bit on the stale side as well. Grass, lemon meringue, and potpourri. A bit grainy, too. Flavor is quite sweet and grainy. Weird floral note. Slight butterscotch and a lot of popcorn. Mild grass and chalk bitterness. Disappointing.
