A nice summer time beer for hop heads! I love the bright hoppy flavors paired with such a light and effervescent pils. Certainly not the most authentic beer, but definitely worth a try if you like hops and are looking for a refreshing, low-alcohol alternative to IPA. Like most light lagers, it is a bit underrated on BA because too many people have hang ups about this style. Just because something is in the same family as a PBR or Bud doesn't mean it's bad!

poured 12oz can into snifter.

A - Straw yellow in color with a 2 finger white creamy head. Decent retention and lacing.

S - A nice mix of earthy, grassy hops, grainy, and light lemons dominate the nose. I pick up hints of another fruit like aroma.

T - The hops are earthy, grassy, with a mild herbal, strawberry like flavor that really brings it together. Notes of some light grain, citrus, and lemon zest on the finish.

M - Light body, crisp, smooth finish with good carbonation. Great brew to drink in the summer.

O - This was a fun lager style beer to drink that has some distinct and unique flavors. I thought that they all came together really well and could enjoy this beer any hot day.

Clear yellow nearing gold colored beer with a good sized snow white colored head.

I can smell this from 3 feet away. Strong spicy noble hop aroma. Abundant saffron and hay with lemon, herb and a slightly soapy scent. Slight sour scent with soda cracker and a little honeysuckle.

Starts out stoutly hopped and semi dry. Saffron and grass come on strong and it is rather spicy. Good level of bitterness. Tasty and stoutly hopped Pilsner. Yes I know it says "Lager" but it is stronger flavored than that.

Mouthfeel is a little light.

Overall this is a super tasty Pils from the heart of Mormon Country.
