On draft at Brass Tap Gainesville. Pours perfectly clear golden with small creamy white head. Aroma of huge fresh hop candy, citrus and pine galore. Flavor is light bodied hops and sweet candy malts. Excellent balance with huge aromatic hops. A super clean finish like no lager I have had before. Easy drinking and similar to a hoppier, lighter Two Hearted. Nicely done.

Thin head on a clear bright golden with slight orange hue body and excellent lacing. Aroma of grains, wet sock hops, bland orange citrus, light breads and toasted malts. Flavor has a toasted malt and mildly sweet pale malt base with notes of herbal up front and tart orange citrus hops in the finish, pine resins throughout. Very clean, medium body and moderate carbonation. The malt and grains let you know it's a lager but its hopped like an IPA.

Pours with a small head of white foam that quickly dissipates and leaves little lace. An oddly fruity aroma with notes of red apple and cinnamon? Malty and smooth up front with a bit of herbal hop character. Some more of the apple character from the aroma in the middle and a finish of thick malt and moderate, but lingering bitterness. A fairly thick body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish. Odd, I expected a more robust hop profile, I am assuming that they went for Imperial quantities of European hops rather than an American hop profile in a european base beer. Frankly, I think the latter would have worked much better, what we have here is a decent lager with an odd combination of aromas from too much of the wrong kind of hops. The bitterness is bordering on harsh, but there is quite a lot of malt here so it balances ok in the end.
