Bottle - fair size foamy head, light straw color, sweet light malt aroma and flavor, mild earthy hop balance, would be a good easy drinking beer for a hot summer day mowing your lawn, otherwise ok overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle. Mildly hazed godlen hue, white head that dissipated semi-quickly. Aromais clean, herbal, bready, hit of weirdness that dissipates. Flavor is crisp and dry, some breadiness, pretty nice brew, in my favorite of styles, us breweries are really starting to come around finally.

thegreenrooster (4512) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is bready lager malts. Flavor is again a bit bready and finishes with a little grainy. Nothing exciting but it’s not a bad lager. I could see myself putting a few of these down during the summer months.
