A can from a 6 pack picked up at Green's Buford Hwy. 1st craft beer in a can from a GA brewery

A - A clear golden pilsner color, with 1 finger of head and nice sticky lace left on the glass

S - Lots of grainy malts, maybe hints of citrus from the hops

T - Big grainy malts, biscuit flavor. A hint of citrus hops at the end. Well balanced, smooth.

M - light bodied, decent amount of carbonation

O - As the can says, it is very refreshing after a long day in the sun in the summer time. Excellent beer to take a 6 pack or 2 with you up to the lake on a hot summer day. Also great to find a local brewery getting into the canning movement...

Picked up a growler of Long Day Lager from the good good folks at Ale Yeah this evening; meant to have it over the weekend but the cap got dented on the way home and the loss of pressure prompted me to give it an early go.

Poured a hazy gold from the growler into a pint glass; carbonation was good with a frothy head foaming, but dissipated quickly. If this was due to the loss of pressure from the cap, fair enough. Looked good though and bubbles held nicely.

Faint hops, yeast, slight grass and lemon zest on the nose.

Taste was rich with smooth grassiness and mellow hop characteristic. Very pleasing.

The mouthfeel was very good; ABV wasn't highly pronounced on the pallet so this would be a great session lager.

Good first impression from Red Hare in Marietta; I was hoping to give their IPA a try, but they ran out at AY before I got there. A nice autumn lager with plenty of character. If you're introducing your BMC buds to craft beer, this would be a great way to bring them over to the dark side...

Bought a growler at Whole Foods recently. Hazy gold appearance with a decent but not over the top head. Good and fresh flavor. A step above the mass produced adjunct lagers for sure. Not in the top tier but a very drinkable lager for a hot day in Georgia. This Marietta brewery seems to know their climate, customers, and beer.

Had this on draft quite a few times but never reviewed it... Was released in cans yesterday and I got one of the first 6 packs only 2 place in GA got it in yesterday :) Pours a clear golden color, foamy white head. Doesn't stick around a long time but what do you expect from a lager? Taste is slightly sweet, biscuit, some hop bitterness on the back of the tongue... could easily drink all I have in the fridge tonight if I didn't work tomorrow lol Just a great beer from a brewery right down the street from me. Overall great beer and if you live in the Marietta, GA area be sure to stop by for a tour there over the weekend.
