Lagers get a bad reputation in our world, but this lager was done right! I am telling you this is a fantastic and very drinkable beer. This sucker is 8.5 % and you do not taste the alcohol. Be careful with this one!

Look: Hazy hay yellow. Nice head retention looks like a lager, but this one is a bit thicker and hazier than the rest.

Smell: You get some hops in there, sweet grassy nicely balanced.

Taste: This is a solid beer people, don't discount the lager, it gets no respect in the world of sours, stouts and IPA's but this one is flavorful. Its has a nice malt backbone, not too sweet, but the Kiwi hops they use up the ante on this one. Its very well balanced. Almost like a perfectly balanced ale really but with a better mouthfeel!

Overall: This is a great beer, you cannot taste the alcohol which can get you into trouble with too many of them. The hops balance it out and its got an intensity to it. Almost like an IPA and lager but too balanced to detect a difference. I have two of these and I am happy I got this on a trade from a good friend in RI. If you can get your hands on this beer buy it or trade for it!
