Pours hazy butterscotch with no head at all. Aroma is sweet biscuity Munich malt. Taste follows with a touch of honey. Smooth and balanced but could do with more carbonation. Linger is sweet and biscuit malt. Decent, though headless, Fest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Didn’t realize it was a lager to start with, so thought it was a little mild. Pretty good.

Growler from ale yeah. Crisp and clean. A little bitter on the finish. Some pepper spice. Big frothy white head. A little more entertaining than a straight lager and refreshing for the summer.

6-pack from brewery. Just like description . Hop forward clean crisp, a bit heavier than the best hoppy pils, but wow this is the best lager I have ever had in 40 years! Surprised not higher rating . Does this qualify as an ipl? If so, best ipl as well. Much less harsh than most ipls. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Salud. Crystal clear golden aroma, dense white head with good retention and solid lacing, a truly gorgeous beer, especially after muddling through murky IPAs. Nice aroma of meadow, melon and citrus. Taste is peppery lager, crisp finish. Tasty.

edgallow (4377) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Draft pours amber with a white head. Aroma of citrus, resin and some yeast. Taste is lemon and caramel

3.6
malvrich (342) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle into a pilsner. No date found. A: Pours hazy pale gold with 1/2" of thick white foam. Decent retention, good patchy lace and busy carbonation. S: Light but sharp lemon and bread scent. A little zest. T: Sourdough bread and hop notes of lemon, pith and again a hint of zest in nice balance with neither especially dominant. M: Medium bodied with fine beaded carbonation. Slightly chewy O: Very nice overall, rating pretty well in all categories although this could be quite old. Hi-Wire website says Available April–August so WTF? Lack of date info is disappointing but the beer is very solid.

Tap at brewery. Pours mostly clear pale yellow. Aroma is pale malt, light floral and citrus hops, and faint yeast esters. Flavor is dry and crisp with nice citrus hop notes and soft yeast esters. Light body.

3.4
snoworsummer (5961) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy gold with a thick, creamy off white head. Tastes like grapefruit hops, toasted malt, lemon, and hop resin. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like grapefruit hops, toasted malt, lon, and hop resin.

On tap in the Bonnaroo Brooers tent. As advertised, light and crisp with a German lager feel to it but some extra hops. Nice beer and something I’d happily enjoy again.
