Liked this one for awhile now. Didn't realize I hadn't reviewed it.
A: Pours a rich, golden hue with excellent clarity and a good bit of fizzy white head. Head retention is moderate.
S: Grass, lemon, sulfur, spicy hop aromas. Very bright and powerful aromas, as well.
T: Clean, beautiful notes of toasted cracker, lemon, touch of salt, spicy hops without being overpowering. The balance of malt and hops is easily one of the best I've ever come across.
M:The best part. Tiny bits of carbonation leave a lively tingling on the tongue. In no way seltzery, this beer is still incredibly dry and refreshing.
O: Awesome. One of the better pale lagers I've had. A good step up for the BMC crowd while still being complex enough to enjoy as a more discerning beer drinker.

I think my bottle could have been fresher as it was a little undercooked carbonation-wise.
A - Clear, bright and with a satisfyingly billowy head. I poured it in to style-appropriate glassware and it looked sort of amazing.
S - Light hop profile complimented by malt, spice, orange peel and a little hop.
T - Light hop profile complimented by malt, spice, orange peel and a little hop.
M - Light and refreshing but I'd have liked a little more fizz.
O - Beerdrinkers of the world (and by world I mean Beer Advocates) really need to recognise that there is definitely a place for lagers. This was a great way to start my session, easing in with a classic and refreshing beverage.
