3.85/5 rDev +2.7%
Pours golden brown with 1 finger of white head. More malty sweetness in the nose and flavor than I'm used to in a lager. Rye, caramel, and subtle lager bitterness. This is a really impressive lighter beer. I don't normally seek out lagers, but this will be the exception.

3.95/5 rDev +5.3%
Bottled Jul 19 2013 at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of malt
Head average (4 cm), off-white, creamy, slowly diminishing to an uneven layer ranging from 0 – 4 mm thick
Lacing good, forms wide nearly complete rings
Body clear medium red-orange
Flavor begins with malt sweetness and flavor with some rye spice and quickly ends on the same notes; no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl
Palate is medium, slightly oily, soft carbonation
This is an attractive and easy drinking beer. Although this is billed as a lager, it lacks the acidity and sourness associated with lagers, perhaps because of the rye. So far, the best beer I’ve had from Great Divide.

Pours a deep clear golden with some amber hues. Thin head and light lacing. Nose is malty with notes of spicy rye and neutral lager yeast. Some earthy grain notes as well. Flavor is subtle with rye malts coming forward and no hop character to speak of. A slight spiciness towards the end. Mouthfeel is light and moderately carbonated. Overall, decent flavors, well balanced, and easy drinking.
