3.78/5 rDev +0.8%
A: The beer is very hazy orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around some edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose along with notes of grainy malts.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that the malty flavors seem to be a little more prominent and the hops only contribute a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and slightly chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be a good representation of the style and had a nice balance between the malts and hops.

From 07/28/13 notes. Had on tap at Ginger Man in NYC.
a - Pours a hazy, medium orange color with one inch of white head and low carbonation evident.
s - Smells of light citrus, bread, wheat, grains, floral hops, fruits, and earthy notes. Light oranges and citrus and fruit in the nose, pretty nice, though not super hoppy.
t - Tastes of bready malts, light oranges, light floral hops, earthy notes, grains, wheat, and toasted malts. Nice, but less fruit and citrus than the nose; a slight step down for me.
m - Medium body and low carbonation. Very msooth and easy to drink. Nice mouthfeel.
o - Overall a pretty good beer, though no where near their other hoppy offerings. Some nice floral and citrus in the nose, though the taste has less. Easy to drink, a nice light beer, but would highly recommend their other IPA's if you're looking for something hoppy.

On tap at the Brewery in Peekskill, pours clear lighter copper amber, supporting a middle of the road off white head, and then showing better then average lace. Just a hint of hops in the nose. Balanced brew, toffee malts a hint of tropical fruit and grainy hops. Nothing special, but a decent offering for a tiny brwery that is hosting a boatload of guest taps and still searching/finding its way with its own brews.

Served on-tap at Valhalla in New York, NY
A: Pours a crystal clear pale amber in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some faint hints of orangish amber in color. The beer has a finger tall foamy light beige head that quickly reduces to medium sized patch of thin film, a very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Upfront there is a light aroma of grainy malts that has a light amount of sweetness present. Light to moderate aromas of citrus/orange/grapefruit hops towards the finish.
T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of cereal grain malts with a light amount of sweetness that is followed by light to moderate flavors fo citrus/orange/grapefruit hops that imparts a light amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.
M: Lighter than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Clean with a very light amount of dryness in the finish.
O: Surprised that this is a California Common/Steam Beer as it could easily be mistaken for an APA or an IPA. There is a pleasant amount of hoppiness that makes this one quite enjoyable and it is very easy to drink.

Poured a deep copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a light toasted malts accompanied by a grassy hop.
The taste was very well balanced with a round caramel malt and a cleansing bright grassy hop.
The mouthfeel was clean with a dry finish.
Overall a tasty well balanced ale. Very sessionable.

Toasted orange and clear with a small white crown that shows a touch of retention and lace.
Smell: Toffee malts and a hint of bittering / floral hops.
Taste: Same as nose.
Mouthfeel: Crisp and light...my favorite aspect of this session brew.
Overall: I could have had more than one of these, especially in warm weather.

Light golden colored with a small off white head.
Aromas of toffee, cereal, biscuit, and earthy and piney hops.
Nose just like the taste. Great balance juicy hops in the middle very piney and grassy. Cereal malts a bit sweet on the finish with moderate carbonation leaving a great mouthfeel. Silky smooth.

On tap at the brewery.
Pours a hazy dark orange. 1.5 inch head, not much lacing.
Slightly weak aromas- spicy and grassy tones are what I get.
The taste follows, slightly stronger. Lightly bitter, with grassy hop flavors coming to the forefront. A bit floral, too.
Light bodied, well carbonated, very drinkable.
A good stab at the California Common style. Could have a bit more bright flavors.

This unfiltered beer comes in a golden hazy color.
The aroma has tons of citrus, some grassiness, and some breadiness.
The flavor follows with tons of orange hops, a bready mouthfeel, and pine. There's a good amount of drying on the end.
The finish definitely has that breadiness and grain flavor that makes it a lager instead of an ale.
However, the unfiltered lager aspect with this along with the tons of citrus hops really makes this hoppy lager a drinkable and really enjoyable beer.
