3.58/5  rDev -7.5%

Bottled 6/16/14.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grass and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium 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 a pretty good beer that packs a surprising hop punch that I wasn't expecting.

Serving type: bottle.

A: The beer is slightly hazy straw yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose along with faint hints of the underlying bready malts.
T: Much like the smell, flavors of grassy hops stand out in the taste and contribute a light to moderate amount of associated bitterness. The hints of bready malts are a bit stronger compared to the smell, but are still overshadowed by the hops.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tasted a lot more like an ale than a lager and seemed like a hoppier version of an APA. It's not a bad choice if you like hops and want something that's lighter in body, but I found it unusual that it had lots of crispness for a lager, which seems unusual compared to some of the Imperial Pale Lagers that I've tried.

On-tap 10/15/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lager yeast, hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a good hops bitterness for the style. Then some breadiness comes in from lager yeast and a hearty malt character, but there isn’t much balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are better options in the style.

Pours with way too much carbonation, forcing me to stop pouring with 1/4 of the bottle left, a big fizzy airy slightly creamy but bubbly 3 finger head fades semi quickly but reinforced by tons of bubbles streaming from the bottom even with no etch at the bottom, mostly clear little hazy watery lemon yellow color.

Nose isn't too bad, but quite light and hard to get a lot of aroma out of it, mild grainy toasty pilsner malt, quite grassy and some straw, hint lemony too, some light lemony grassy hops but a decent hop base, little bready and doughy too.

Taste is decent, much more flavor than I expected, quite lemony too, with a lemon rind bitterness, lemony hops, little grassy hops and slightly spicy, fair bitterness too. Malts are light though, little grainy bready doughy, some toasty pilsner malts, a little wheat like it almost seems, mild hay and lemongrass, fairly grassy in the malt category too, again too much carbonation and bitterness just gets rampant. Finish lingers for a while, it dries quite a bit but more lemon rind, and astringent bitterness takes over and almost makes the beer a bit unpleasant, but not quite there.

Mouth is lighter bod, too much carbonation that gets in the way.

Overall meh, nothing special, but then again I don't expect much from Peak Organic, so perhaps it's more on the "good" side for a beer from them, a big hop presence that starts nice, but gets too lemony and astringent, decent malt just wish there was more of it, but too much carbonation, and that lemon astringent character is too much.

Moderate head that becomes just a ring of bubbles. Decent spots for lace. The liquid is a cloudy dark straw color.

Mild but clean true Czech Pilsner aroma.

The flavor is far stronger than the smell indicates. Starts with a soft pale malt taste with no graininess. The hop comes on very strong and quickly. More neutral bitter than anything else. Borderline harsh, certainly too much for a pilsner. Full bodied for the style but not too rich. Good carbonation.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured grassy herbal hops and a biscuity pils malt.

The flavor was round and delicate as it should be with a springy herbal hop and moderately chewy pils malt.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a gentle carbonation.

Overall a very well made and tasty pils.

This is a very good beer. It poured the hazy pale yellow with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent carries a gin like flare with touches of mild pine and hints of citrus. The taste has a great Czech pils base with a neat pine/gin twang. The mouthfeel is m3edium in body with good carbonation. Overall I am really enjoying this beer.

A-Far hazier than I would have anticipated if I had anticipated anything about this beer. Hazy yellowish orange. A finger's worth of tight, yet frothy head. Very generous lacing.

S-Shocked me from the first sniff. This is clearly going for the 'India Pale Lager' moniker and it, so far, is on the right track. Obviously grassy but there is also a ton of luscious citrus and other tropi-hop aromas.

T-Just as the nose advertised. Fresh cut grass - what a surprise! Tangerines and all other citrus fruits. A tight, little cracker maltiness. Really tasty.

M-Still light bodied but has more body than many standard Pilsners. Well carbonated. Moderate bitterness.

O-I would consider this an India Pale Lager. I would also consider this a goddamn delicious beer. Peak's best by far. I will go hunting for this sneaky bastard very soon. The ease of a Pilsner with the hop bite of an IPA; sign me up for that any time.
