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: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured a murky medium brass hue with a one ginger frothy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a dry pilsner malt with a touch of earthy sweetness and an herbal hop.

The taste consisted of clean pilsner malts accented with a light toasted sweetness firm the Munich malt, finished with an herbal noble hop.

The mouthfeel was full for the style.

Overall a tasty and easily quaffed lager.
