Poured this can into a shaker pint. Huge thanks to darthvohn for this one!
The mountainous, cratered, bone-white foam towers out of the top of the glass by at least an inch, the Mount Olympus of beer head. This god-like tower of froth fights for minutes, creating a cratered lid with the thickest wall of spider lacing ever seen. The pale golden body emanates out highlights of honey-brown with small bubbles ascending to the cap.
Aromas of unripe pear, grapefruit, honey drenched bread, lemon-y wheat, honey dew, and flowery daisy notes seep from the pint glass. Such a fantastic bouquet, it is hard to fathom this is coming from a beer!
Zoe charms the tongue with initial notes of light citrus, melon, and flowery esters. Her flirtatious stroll leads into earthy, peppery flavors with the sweet bread malt coalescing near the end, a slightly bitter note of lemon playing in the finish.
Zoe has a perky level of carbonation, bubbles snapping the tongue while producing an ever so slight dry finish. A delicate body gliding over the tongue, she feels light on the palate.
What a treat, a real classy lady. The One They Call Zoe is a fantastically hopped lager with bright citrus and flowery esters, a truly bewitching arsenal of aromas. The palate lets the drinker down slightly, but remains an incredibly easy drinking experience. Calling a let down "incredible" should give one an idea of just how good this beer is, well done Hops & Grain!

Poured from the can into a pokal glass.
Deep apricot orange body and yellow, with a fairly opaque and solid body. Head is off white with a three finger tall appearance. Settles to a soapy collar and puck with little lacing.
Bright nose on this beer. Hints of herbal sharp pine, and then some good fruit hop notes. Hits at pineapple and sharp steely apricot and tropics. Very impressive, and unexpected, smells like tropical punch.
The fruit hop angle explodes on the palate. Big hints of spicy melon, pineapple, and apricot zest. Good crisp light body, with even a little bit of honey like density but smaller than expected. Juicy. Sharp herbal notes of hinting pine and even a little minty aftertaste. Tropical juiced flavor abounds.
Overall just a very impressive lager, feels and tastes like spicy hop fruit punch more than it does beer.

Pours golden colored with half a finger width foamy head. Only a small amount of lacing on the side. Aroma is that of tropical fruits and hops. Citrusy. Has a hint of apples as well. Malty taste with hints of citrusy tropical fruit up front, quickly followed by a grassy hoppy taste. You can discern that malty lager taste right at the end but only for a split second. Nice bitter aftertaste. I am generally not a fan of lagers, but this one definitely will do. Excellent beer. I wish it is more available at the Spec's near me.
