This lager pours from the can to a golden/straw color and produces only a small amount of foam- enough to look nice without producing so much to overflow your glass. Inhale the aromas and you get scents of sweet grains, dough, and light fruit.

Tasting this beer reveals about what you expect, with flavors of barley malt, grains, biscuits, and crackers. There is a little fruit in there as well and just the slightest spice. The beer finishes smooth and refreshing.

Upslope has produced a good, sessionable lager with this beer. The flavor of pale barley malt and grain forms the basis of this beer and its crisp, clean, easy- going nature make it a good choice for multiple purposes. At first glance, it might look like the typical macro- lager, but the nose and taste have none of that funk and/or cardboard flavor common to some of the big name, adjunct lagers.

Overall, a tasty little lager that I will keep in mind for my next party.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #65 (June 2012):

LOOK: Clear straw yellow, thin head

SMELL: Biscuity, bread crust, faintly floral, nutty, clean

TASTE: Crisp, lighter body; doughy, faint sweetness, biscuity, dried grass, balanced bitterness, herbal; clean, dry finish

Awesome to see another craft brewer go wild and brew an American lager, and Upslope went right for it. The retro flavor is there, and it drinks very easy. The only missing factor is that it does not come in the tallboy format. Not a problem knocking a few of these back.

A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is sweet, malty. Taste is crisp, malts, some grains, none of the sweetness in the smell, kind of on the mild side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent brew.

Serving type: can
