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

Slightly cloudy brass with rocky steady white froth.
Fresh grassy noble nose with some toasted grain.
Doughy, a bit of golden syrup, some granola, and mild herbal hops.
Honey graham comeback and clean linger.
Crisp, light, slight cling.

Easy, but you can taste the quality. A lager, not a pils, so only 20 IBUs, no matter what I want it to be. Yet also thin and underdeveloped. I've had this idea done better (i.e. Session Lager).

Bottle picked up locally enjoyed from a jack's abby snifter. Brew pours a soft transparent yellow orange with a thin fizzy head gone quick. Nose is subtle pilsner malt with a hint of grain. Taste is also fairly mellow. A true session lager. But well made. Malty with a lager bite.
