On tap at brewpub. Pours a crystal clear straw yellow color with a one finger white head. Pale malt aroma, with lots of straw and a slight hop spice that comes through as well. Taste is straw again, very rich straw flavor. The spicy hops show up to balance things out. light bodied, crisp, a little fizzy and a dry finish.

Pale, visible carbonaton, tuck of white dissapating head. Silver/steely cheap hop nose, with a nostalgic classic lager pishness to the nose. Firm carbonation and listless hop thread. Ceramic, dry softly bittered finish. Bonus points for the can.

Can. Golden with a medium head that took time to dissipate. Slightly sweet and drunk on a warm summers night to quench my thirst. Apart from this it had nothing going for it.
