A hazy, yellow pour with a minimal, white head. The aroma is faint with some light corn. It has a light, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is sweet with a quick, easy finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle in a variety pack from Randalls in North County. This is clear honey gold and has very active carbonation. A white head. Pale malts, grain, and light honey in the aroma. A bit of odd earth is smelled. The flavor is grassy. Somehow it makes my lower jaw lock up on the right side. Never had that happen. But the feel is creamier than expected. Hops are very light and so is the bitterness. Those hops have a hint of Noble to them. Jason was right in that this almost became a pils but did not get there. Some grass is tasted.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
It poured a clear golden yellow color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was of sweet malt, corn and mild grassy hops. The taste was strangely hopped with sweet malt and a dry mild bitter finish.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle from jandd1983- thanks again, Doran! Pours a pale, clear light golden color with rising carbonation and a finger of white head that lasts as a film on the beer. The aroma has sweet malts, straw, sugar, corn flakes, and stale bread. The flavor is basically an improvement on the same notes. But there’s something off-putting in the nose; sweet and a little stinky. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a thin, malty mouthfeel. As good as the IPA was, this one is a barely-average pale lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is a clear yellow with a large fizzy white head. Aroma is some grassy malt with some cracker dry malt. Flavor is again mostly malts. Dry biscutiy malt with with not much else showing up. Kinda going into a pils but did not quite get there. Still better than most lagers.
