22 picked up at the COOP yesterday for I think $4ish... Sorta expensive for what it is, but it is well made... Pours a slight hazy straw golden with a decent white head and little lacing. Nose shows bigger than expected hoppiness, but it works well with the light background maltiness... hops are smell like cut grass and light citrus zest. Flavor mirrors the aromas nearly perfectly with a bit of an upfront bitter bit that adds to the drinkability in my opinion. Body is light and carbonation is spot-on where it should be. If this was in a reasonably priced 6-pack, I would buy it all the time in this Boise heat. It is a near perfect summer quaffer for somebody that like lagers and want more of a hop bite.

Rating #2296 - 2016.01.08 - Can from CBI - Pours a clear golden with a bubbly white head, intricate lacing. Aroma is sweet orange peel, citrus. Mouthfeel is crisp, medium-high carbonation. Decent hoppy bite for a "hoppy" pils.

EithCubes (5648) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Can from VE. Nose reminds me of citronella, or at least the stuff sprayed on the skin to ward against mosquitoes. Pour clear yellow golden that glows, a creamy short bright white head. Medium body with light-medium bitterness, dry. Bitterness intersects yeastiness, rubber, and theres a harsh chlorophyll thats kept low put present. Thin malt, some lemon and citrus, dirty resin. Needed to mix this with something, its off. [2016.09.13: 1.3]

Cloudy pale yellow pour with aroma of corn and cereal. Mostly corn and cereal flavor with some lemon grass. Decent.

Poured from can. Smells a bit sour when opened. Pale, cloudy yellow. Mild hops, more than a typical pale lager. Just an okay beer.

mcberko (14979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2016
On tap at VCBW Festival 2016, pours a clear pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma is very herbaceous, with lots of grassiness, herbal hops and crisp crackery notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of herbaceousness upfront, followed by grassy hops and crisp biscuity malt. Quite a lot of depth for a lager. Very nice stuff.

Solid lager, quite leafy, but really nothing to give it an edge. Lot better Lagers out there.

johnnnniee (3880) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Can from Acton Wine and Spirits. Pours a slightly hazy deep yellow color with a smallish bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Citrus earthy mineral spicy aromas and little else on the nose. Citrus and orange fruitiness in the flavor, lightly herbal or earthy . Faint bready maltiness, lingering hop bitterness. Somewhat reminds me of Tang at times. Different take on a lager interesting, but not enough for me to buy again.

tfontana (806) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle pour from Andover Liquors. Aroma is floral hops over European malt base. Appearance is very pale yellow with greenish tinge (sort of urine-like) with trace sparkle, 1/2 finger-width fleeting white head with fair lacing. Taste is traditional pilsner malty sweetness with fruity hops, but both are mild. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture and average to lively carbonation and crisp finish. Overall, a decent enough idea with hints of what it could be, but is pretty pedestrian.

Canned at Tin Can. Nothing special. Tad hoppier than your average lager. Not sure if have it again.
