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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Light gold, dark yellow, medium haze, medium low carbonation, appears fairly thin.
S: Pilsner like. Light corn aroma. Fruity, slightly berry, some light bready maltiness in the background. Not bad, slightly strange though. The fruitiness might be throwing me off a bit.
T: This tastes just a like a beer I've homebrewed before. It's lager like in feel, but fruity almost like an ale. The malt is nice, caramel and bready. As it warms, the malt character comes out a lot more. Bitterness is present, but fairly mild. Very fruity, berry is the only descriptor I can think of. It's a nice beer, fairly unique. There's nothing wrong with it, just unorthodox.
M: Medium carbonation, not entirely crisp, could be a bit higher. Medium bodied.
O: Very nice beer, again, sort of unique tasting, the combination of American hops and German lager taste is interesting, and tasty. I would order this again.
