Poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Poured a very light amber with a substantial white head.
S: Smelled of citris hops, grass and grain. A bit malty as well.
T: Citrus hops, grass and grain much like the smell but also very grapefruity.
M: Nice balanced mouthfeel. Not watery or slick but very smooth with light carbonation.
O: Overall a really nice lager especially to be had at the end of a long day :)

Not a big smell on the sniffer here. But pleasant with citrus, perhaps slight pine, faint pear into lemon kinda thing happening.
Big attractive head off a vigorous pour. Atmospheric lacing rings populate the glass, with a murky faint swamp like head which drops off the deeper you get in. Shift is a very sexy beer.
Grassy straw notes. and a bit spicey with resined lingering bitterness for the mouth. Very solid beer and burger beer and a nice drinker.
Serving type: can
