12oz bottle into stange

A: Blatantly unfiltered, hazed, off-gold colored hue that presents with copious amounts of carbonation building a bright white head of two or so fingers. Viscosity looks light; passing light produces a marigold glow.

S: Big lemon zest up front with citrus peel and grassiness. Very light fruitiness, a rather pleasant nose puts pressure on the taste. Remote hints of sweetness, pineapple, clementine.

T: Not too far off the nose, with some added resin. The citrus peaks through with more of an earthy dryness. Nicely balanced light fruitiness mixed with some lemon grass and juice zest. Picking orange rind and sweet wet pine. Crystal clean malt that’s quite innocuous and really just serves to balance the experience without imparting too much else.

M: Bold and nicely carbonated, plays off the palate with a nice juiciness. Medium body and crisp - Balanced and departs by leaving a sweet juicy residue, pretty quenching on the pull through.


O: This is the latter half of a sixer I scooped in VT, but I swear the first four didn’t taste this good. Really showcases the power of citra, pretty effective stuff that holds up nicely on its own. Haven’t had much experience with the American Pale Lager, but this is a nice first round. Recommended

Reviewed from notes. Shared by Andrew - thanks.

A: Pours a hazed pale yellow under a 1/2-inch thick white head which fades to the rim and leaves spotty lace.

N: Fruity and floral, tropicals (passion fruit) is noted.

T: Citrusy and yeasty, well balanced, clean.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Finishes dry and citrusy.

O: Refreshingly nice and easy drinking. Well done.
