This brewery seems determined to present itself as a craft brewer without formulating anything interesting or 'good' in its nominal attempts at different styles.

This particular beer is like a sad knock-off of Avery's Joe's Pilsner, which in itself is less than perfect.

All Upslope beers suffer from lackluster carbonation- each sip lands dead on my palette. This lager needs to be dryer and present a bigger head, to start.

Again and again I wonder if these smaller brewers are starting with some target references - Urquell, Paulaner, Asahi?

No way this is worth $9 a six pack.

Cheers.

Pours a clear straw color with a tight, white head that leaves little to no lacing.

Smells of light grains and grass with a touch of lemon.

Tastes of the grassy and lemon hops with some grainy sweetness. Light hops notes lead off with the grass and some lemon zest. A touch of grainy sweetness comes through and rounds everything out. Very light profile which needs some oomph.

Mouthfeel is light with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, the right notes are there, but it is too light for me. However, I think they accomplished their goal of making a light and unoffensive lager.
