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.

Release #9

Poured into pint glass.
Fizzy whit head and dark amber lager coloured.

Smell: fruity, hoppy. Almost sweet

Taste: malty, citrus. No bitterness really but not expected with a lager.

Mouthfeel: sharp and fizzy, sweet aftertaste on back of tongue.

Light, straw yellow body with lively carbonation and a thick, sticky, creamy white head. Subtle fruity hop aroma; melon and light malt grains. Easy going malt flavors, mostly subdued malts and a rather strongly bitter hop finish. Light bodied, crisp, clean, dry finish.

Subtlety in aroma and taste is the key with this lager, almost delicate in character, yet the hop bitterness is rather robust. Don't look for any massive, 2x4 between-the-eyes punch but, rather, an easy drinking, light-bodied beer that still provides plenty of sensory enjoyment.
