Labeled Best By May 18 2015

A: Very pale yellow, almost totally transparent.

S: It lets you know that it has an all-American hop bill, and that it's not a traditional German pilsner by any stretch of the imagination. More subtle than a pale ale, but the aroma is hop forward.

T: My first thought when tasting it is that it has a super "clean" taste to it. I'm not really sure how to describe it. It's not a sipper, it begs you to chug the whole glass. You get a little orange rind in the middle, followed by some crackery malt, with a lingering slightly bitter finish.

M: Super light, like I said it begs to be chugged.

I've never had anything like it, the hops are up front (and familiar, for someone who drinks more hoppy beers than anything else), but the combination of the hops and super light lager mouthfeel and appearance make this one pretty unique. I gave this to my dad and a friend who drinks more Steel Reserve than craft, and they both really enjoyed it. I think this is a great "gateway" beer for those who are used to AALs and the like. Light, while having no shortage of flavor.

16 oz can served in a nonic glass.

Pours light amber in color with a good head that has decent retention and some lacing. Little in the way of rising carbonation bubbles for style. Poor clarity.

Aroma: mixed grains, soft fruits and herbal hops.

Flavor: Fruity for style.

Feel: light body and medium-low, too low, carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O: a decent pilsner, but compares poorly to the SN/Firestone Walker Beer Camp Torpedo Pilsner that preceded it.
