Shift – Pale Lager (5%) – New Belgium Brewing Co. (Colorado)
App: Deep golden color with hints of copper in direct light. Rocky white head throws up one finger, settling to a half that retains well with a constant stream of bubbles feeding it from the bottom.
Smell: Aroma is light and bready and slightly metallic, with some subtle noble hops character.
Taste: Essentially follows nose. Foretaste is light and cereal with some hops bitterness coming through, especially on the aftertaste. A lot maltier and more in line with a Bohemian Pilsner in terms of flavor, but with significant hopping that balances it well. This beer is super easy to drink and probably one of my favorite lagers. Perfect for the lake or lawn. Actually prefer this out of the can rather than draft.
Mouth: Light and crisp. Flavors linger lightly, but do not coat the tongue. Carb is spot on.
Home tasting, 16oz can into Pilsner Glass. 2/28/14.
Serving type: can
