A - Clear pale amber body with fairly dense white head. Good retention and nice lacing.

S - Sugary caramel malt profile

T - Slight floral hop upfront with spicy sweet malts.

M - Light body with moderate/light carbonation. Quite thin and no stickiness.

O - This was ok but not really worth revisiting. Maybe a good session beer, but nothing to write home about.

12 oz can was poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a two finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Toasted, bready, and sweet grains and malts followed by lager yeast and herbal and grassy hops.

Taste: Same as above with a bit more malty sweetness yj as needed I would like. A little bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, light bodied, a little chewy, and

Overall: Nice helles lager. Would have like more toasted than sweet notes.

Drank from a 3/4 pint/12 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a pint glass

The liquid poured a crystal-clear, pale golden-amber. A frothy, one-finger tall, bright white crown topped the liquid but it quickly faded to a thin film. Droplets of lacing cascaded down the glass.

Bready, biscuity malts dominated the aroma. Somewhat musky and distinctly German. I definitely picked up some lager yeast notes as well. Clean, grassy hops were detectible as the beer warmed. The hops became more prominent with time and the malts faded into the background.

The flavor profile was initially quite similar to the nose. Crisp and bright. There was a strong biscuity malt presence. Fairly hoppy. As in the nose, grassy hops were quite apparent. The hops crescendoed on the back end and intensified with time. Some tart, lemony hop notes came through in the finish.

The mouthfeel was definitely the most impressive aspect of the beer. It was incredibly fluffy and creamy. A super fine, moderate effervescence gave the liquid a pillowy soft quality.

Summer of Lager is rather authentic tasting version of a Munich helles lager. Kudos to Cisco Brewers for making a summer beer that bucks the norm.
