A: Golden with a copper tinge, good fine carbonation, 3 fingers of off white head.


S: Pineapple, citrus, candied orange, spicy like papaya seeds.


T: Not sweet as on the nose, but fruity and dry. Citrus, pineapple, tropical fruits, some oregano oil.


M: Medium light body, fine bubbled body, dry finish.


O: More American west coast than expected. Dry on the finish, more of an APA than a pilsner in my opinion. Bought in Chiang Mai, drank Nov 24, 2014.

The colour is gold with a tint of orange; the liquid is clear. The three finger head is off-white and airy. It sinks slowly leaving lots of lacing on the glass.

The smell is powerful hand hoppy: Citric peel, grapefruit juice, black currants, rubber, fruit candy and a hint of diesel smoke. Mild clean sweetness with a touch of butter.

The taste is bitter with notes of rubber, red currants, olive oil, green plums and citric fruits. Hints of dry white wine and spices. Medium body. The aftertaste is smoother with citric peels, floral notes, French loaf, bitter herbs and sour fruit drops. The long finish is clean and bitter.

The carbonation is fresh, the small bubbles long-lasting. The liquid is mid-smooth. No harshness.

A solid American craft-style lager!

Bought this bottle at 'Meny' in Trondheim, Norway - I dont think the bottle was kept too well and this may very well have influenced the beer.

A - Golden amber, great 1.5 finger head with nice retention.

S - Citrus hops and caramel malts, I also detect some off flavors: green apples - acetaldehyde? maybe even some very slight diacetyl

T - Like it smells. The flavors are fairly stable and even all the way through, with a firm bitterness. Some acetaldehyde off flavors I think.

M - medium low carbonation, smooth and creamy for the abv.

O - A lager apa? This would be a nice beer if not for the off flavors, for now I'm not sure what the lager part brings to the table - the only yeast driven flavors I get are off-flavored.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice hazy deep golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves great lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of pine resins, citrus, some grassiness, floral hops and some grainy/toasty malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some bitter pine resins, a nice grassiness, some citrus, slight floral notes, grainy/toasty malts and a touch of caramel.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.
