look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

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.
