Sample at the taproom. Slightly hazy pale golden color with a thin white head that burns away quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt and grassy hops. Light-bodied with flavors of crackery malt, mild hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hop aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Pours up piss yellow, thin small head. Aroma is cheap corn, and aluminum. Taste reminds me of the big guys. No malt to speak of, and only corn syrup and metallic twang for taste. Overall the worst thing Hi-Wire has done. This one is weak.

Can sample at The Amazing Canival. Clear golden yellow color. Aroma of bready peppery lemon. Taste is bready citrus. OK.

Hmm not a bad crisp and clean sweet pale malty lager, but nothing exciting either, rather thin and strawish in appearance and aroma. Flavor profile is predominantly sweet bready malt and grain, with some lemongrass ester accents. Paired well as a quencher for some spicy Thai curry, but I wouldn't bother going out of my way to drink this one again. Describes itself as "a break from the typical craft American beer scene", but who really needs a break from that? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle at the July DC tasting. Poured a light yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was light lagered notes. Light sweet, pale malts. Grassy notes. Flavor was about the same, crisp and grassy. Okay.

Multiple tap-pours at Pour Taproom, Asheville. Clear straw, spotty lace. Nicely grassy hop aroma. Taste is clean, mild sugar, grassy hop balance. Refreshing, very good. A nice surprise.

Hazy golden color with a pillowy white head, grainy and sweet with a subtle grassy hop bite in the finish, fairly crisp and clean overall, decent enough for what it is and I like that its unfiltered, but its not my favorite of the mix pack; great label artwork is a nice bonus; 12 fl oz bottle.
