Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #42 (Jul 2010):

YES! More craft brewers need to adjunct their beer. The lacing has staying power, though the haze on the yellow is distracting. This lager packs a yeasty, grassy aroma. Crisp and a bit slick, obvious light body. Fresh- cut grass and nutty yeast coat the palate; hops are fresh with ample bitterness and a good amount of flavor, which brings this beer up a few notches. The maltiness is a bit light, but right where it's supposed to be. Flavor overrides cleanliness. Very drinkable as well.

Sent to me from 302BeerGuy, thanks Kevin!

Appearance (4.25) : For a lager, it's world class. A fluffy, creamy, pillowy head about three fingers tall that gradually descends and sets at about 1 finger. The body is a straw color but it's more like a chardonnay, it's classy. Lacing left on the glass as the head goes away.

Aroma (3.25) : Hop, malt, barley. Some straw. Not incredible but hey, it's a lager.

Taste (3.75) : Pretty delicious. Lots of hop and yeast action going on. It starts out with a malty and hoppy bite, and moves towards a more robust malt body with a rush of yeast. The yeast finishes out the taste with a semi-dry finish. I can't really pinpoint any flavors, I mean...it's mostly just hop and malt, but it's done nicely.

Mouthfeel (3.75) : Creamy. Medium bodied. Carbonated. Semi-Dry finish.

Overall (3.84) : This lager will impress you. It's a nice departure from B/M/C land and gives you a healthy dose of hops and a yeasty finish. Try it, just try it!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear light golden body, white fizzy head with moderate retention, decent lacing.

Aroma: Malt sweetness and grains up front, a little dry grass on the back end.

Taste: The malty backbone is dressed in dry grasses and some almost honey-like sweet notes with a tangy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and somewhat cream considering the ABV.

Overall: I sort of liked this more and more as I drank it and picked out the subtle qualities.

Pours a clear golden-yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, raw grain, biscuit, and slight grass aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet malt, grass, and slight fruit flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but fairly boring and forgettable in my opinion.

Serving type: can.
