From BeerAdvocate Magazine #80 (Sep 2013):

While we applaud craft brewers who want to do lagers, this one just got lost in translation. It’s just too damn raw to even be recognized as a lager. We’ve had Zwickelbiers that are more refined than this. The biscuity tone is a bit of a distraction as well. Wouldn’t take much to clean this beer up and reveal some greatness.

STYLE: American Pale Lager
ABV: 5.2%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Hazed pale golden, decent lacing

SMELL: Heavy dough, flour, fresh-cut grass, yeast, biscuity, lemon pith, faint spice

TASTE: Grainy, smooth, semi-creamy, moderate-sized body, slight hop bitterness, grain husk, biscuity malt, nutty yeast, mildly chalky, dry finish
