Excited for another offering from these guys. Poured into a standard pint glass.
Pours yellow, clear and clean. Slight lacing with minimal head.
The aroma is all lager. I detect a bit of Budweiser here, with a bit alcohol sharpness and a touch of damp basement. It's all mild and not as off-putting as it sounds.
The taste is not the hop wallop I expected, what with hop cones occupying much of the front of the label. This is a very standard, mostly average pale lager. It has a solid body, and showcases their lager yeast quite nicely. There is very minimal hop impression here. I detect a touch of banana and a bit of ricey-ness. I'd say if you want to sample what a good, solid standard lager tastes like, this is a decent representation. But it doesn't quite meet expectations.

3.5/5 rDev -3%

500 ml. bottle poured into a wine glass. Notes 5.2% from Mom & Pops Harvest Series. Pours clear and deep straw/golden with a thin off whit cap. Light retention. Aroma is hoppy but a bit indeterminate in nature. A fresh pour yields a somewhat spicy Saaz/Noble hop aroma through the foam. Slight haze on final pour, perhaps bottle conditioned.
Taste is full with some citric sweetness on the finish. Feel and finish match the delivery and add a slightly peppery and lemon spice to the close.
Nice moderately hopped lager with Noble hops apparently predominant, yet more complex than a pilsner by design. Offers a relatively full body for a 5.2% lager given spicy hop characteristics.
Brewed Sept. 2013 and reviewed from notes Jan. 2014.
