Style | ABV
American Pale Lager |  4.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Deep golden in color, this low ABV lager balances Pilsner and Munich malt with an aromatic American hop aroma. This beer starts hoppy but finishes unexpectedly malty with very low bitterness. Impressively flavorful and drinkable for the lightest beer we brew. We dub this beer a "Session Lager," as we once again brew a lager in a beer style of its own. Uses local Soft Red Winter Wheat from Four Star Farms.

20 IBU

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #68 (Spetember 2012):

LOOK: Pale yellow, touched with haze, topped with thick white foam

SMELL: Cereal malts, biscuit, clean

TASTE: Creamy, lively mouthfeel, light-bodied, wheaty, grain, lemony hop bite, lime oil, grassy, herbal, dry, biscuity linger

A “Session Lager” from this all lager brewery, brewed with Pilsner and Munich malt, local soft red winter wheat and American hops. At only 20 IBUs it packs plenty of hop flavor without overpowering the delicate malt balance, and the use of wheat is a distinct twist-—perhaps too distinct—but works overall. A very solid lager.

STYLE: American Pale Lager
ABV: 4.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round
