1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Golden and still, little to no head whatsoever. Drinks smooth and clean, but is uber-malty, or at best virtually flavorless. Perhaps made to compete with the macros, and does so admirably. But not much to this, beyond an everyday lager. (#5768, 10/2/2014)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is light citrus, bready. Pours rich golden with above-avg carb and a fizzy beige head. Taste lightly sweet, plain but pleasant malt, not all that crisp, dries out in the finish, very light grassy and juicy hops, faint mineral touch, body feels more like an ale than a pilsner. Clean and hits the spot, good lawnmower beer but doesn’t stand up to thoughtful reflection.
