1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear light straw hued with a foamy white head with lots of lace. The aroma is so light the only descriptor I can give is ’lager beer’. Flavor is a little too ’macro’ for its own good. Probably brewed for those folks who come in asking for "the lightest beer". Tastes light and pilsner-y with creamy corn and pilsner malts with a very quiet grass hop tone, ending metallic like the big boys.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2012 Tap @ Shine. Somewhat hazy, light golden appearance with a white head. Fairly crisp, husky, pils malty, grassy, straw aroma. Smells good. Pretty intense pils malty, rich grainy, hay, light vanilla flavor. Pretty solid actually. Update: even better this time around (12/20/2012).
