16 ounce pour $5.25 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Hazed, darkened, burnished gold body in appearance with a scant, white head, but that's due to the usual heavy Taco Mac pour.

Smell: A profuse graininess in the nose with pithy, citric American-born hop notes, though there's a very small slightly herbal, spicy trace in there tipping off some noble hop usage.

Taste: Grainy, husky upfront with restrained hints of biscuit and sweetness. Hops largely display a citric, fruity character, overshadowing the far subtler, faintly spicy noble hop qualities. Moderate bitterness. Drying, grainy, and lightly bitter into the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: This lager carries across more bitterness than, for me, is desired and has a conspicuous raw graininess throughout, leaving me without the crisp, refreshing, inviting lager I'm looking forward to after a long day.

Looks good. The head, while small, sticks around and leaves some spots on the glass. Gold color and nearly clear.

Malty and devoid of any hop aroma.

Sweet with a berry like presence. Again, pretty low hop which leads to a shorter aftertaste. The body is quite good although the carbonation is elevated. I'd say this falls short of the Czech pils goal.

Comes out of the tap a hazy honey golden with a thin off-white head - but the latter may be an artifact of the pour. The bartenders at Summits like to make sure you get maximum beer. It is darker than most lagers I have sampled, a good sign. As it turns out, the head does leave some decent lacing. Malty, fruity aroma has apple and cherry notes and a hint of hops, unusual for a lager in my experience. Malty and surprisingly hoppy flavor has a fruity tone and subtle hop bitterness. Smooth, firm-bodied, fizzy, edgy texture leaves a malty and rather hoppy finish, somewhat more like an IPA than a lager. I’ve had plenty of lagers, and this is one of the best, if not the best!
