3.6/5 rDev +10.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Hazy marigold in color with a nice finger of creamy head that sticks around for a good amount of time. Lots of creamy lace sticks to the glass, and the head always remained at a respectably thick cap.
S - Husky grains and lively hops. Almost pilsener-like, but without the peppery spice. Little hints of sweet and mild fruit juice (pear?) keep coming through too.
T - Hoppier than I would have guessed, this is fruity and juicy as hell with a nice hop presence that I would even call aggressive...especially for the style. Tastes a lot like it smells...sweet pear juice and pine-sap hops. nice!
M - Light bodied, but with more weight than most basic lagers. This has some abundant, but smooth and silky carbonation and a really hoppy off-dry finish that leaves lots of pine-cone flavors circulating around in your mouth.
D - I would have probably called this an American Pale Ale in a blind taste test based on the nice level of hoppage. For an all-malt lager, this is stunning...but as beer in general it's a little above average. This is one of those beers that doesn't stun you with complexity or bombastic flavor, but wins you over with it's easy-drinkin' attitude and general combination of flavors. If i were headed to a party where I knew I would be doing some serious sessioning, this would be an excellent tool for the job.
