Hops & Grain
12oz can to modern pint
A – Pretty clear but a bit hazy. A yellowish-gold color. Very translucent. Nothing standout or inviting.
S – Some nice hop smells up front, but then some slight butter and apple creep in. From the hops I pick up some grass, spice, and orange zest. I pick up a slight tobacco note on the back end I don’t like. It combines to be like slightly burned popcorn.
T – Grass, corn, and apple. I can’t pick up any butter or tobacco. There’s no rough grain taste, which is a good thing. After a few more minutes, I’m picking up more corn and apple than grass. But more importantly I’m now picking up some grain, and it’s smooth grain. This tells me the quality of beer is quite high, however it’s not a taste I enjoy.
M – Light-medium bodied and a little clingy to the tongue. Finish is only slightly dry. I was expecting a more crisp, refreshing mouthfeel.
D – It’s actually a decent quality pale lager, a style that I’ve often found lacking in quality. However, there are some off-smells, and I don’t like the taste of grain in general. I can see how someone could really dig this for a lager, except for the off-smells and the lack of crispness. Perhaps this batch is a little off. I’ll try it again next summer.
3.75, 2.75, 3, 3.25, 3; 3.05.

A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is malty, a bit of lemons. Taste is lemony, malts, some grains, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall the sum is greater than the parts, a good session beer.

A: golden like sunshine, opaque and a head that leaves in no time leaving traces all around your glass.
S: pleasent mild hop aroma, fruity, tropical with notes of pineapple and citrus.
T: somewhat herbal, fresh, minty and easy going.
M: first night to notice is the crispiness and brightness in this beer, light to medium bodied, semi-sticky, very slight bitterness and away it goes.
O: a great take on an otherwise regular lager, the dry-hopping adds more complexity and balance to the aromas and flavor profile. This one you'll definitely want to keep on drinking!
Serving type: on-tap
