12 oz. can poured into pilsener
(canned on 12/19/14)

L: brilliant, clear orange ... WOW! beautiful color and perfect clarity with loads of bubbles flying up the column -- a true lager look; produced a small head, only 1/3- to 1/2-inch of foam that's offwhite, very sticky at top edge; the Vienna malt is giving it a darker-than-gold hue by just a hair ... boy is she pretty. if she laced just a bit, she'd be a 5.

S: hops ... very American IPA citrus ... floral, too, and I'd swear I can pick up on a chunk of bread malt sweetness (that house-paint-like smell some bread-dough/bread-malt lagers get); onion ... that house paint is real ... the malt is really trying hard to get through the dry-hopping. impressive.

T: tastes like a standard American pale ale -- flowery/citrusy, orange, orange peel, a little onion ... it's hoppy and the malt only seems to be adding a generic sweetness, which is nice but I miss that bread-malt note from the nose

F: crispy clean ... it tastes like an American pale ale, but the dry, clean feel here is signature lager ... pure and true, perhaps even up to a midweight with the carbonation giving it a nice fullness. perfect.

O: i'm both in love and disappointed by this one. there's not enough malty sweetness or bread flavor typical of the Old World lager, so that sucks, yet the lager qualities are undeniable -- in the look and feel mainly. a truly unique brew and if nothing else, it's so well made that whatever my personal tastes, it's making me want to try more Hops & Grain brews. the average American craft beer drinker will LOVE this brew.

I enjoyed a recently brewed Hops & Grain The One They Call Zoe, a pale lager. Hops & Grain is small brewery in Austin. Zoe is 5.2% abv, and has a deeply golden color, on the edge of amber. The head is light and small, disappears quickly with a bit of lacing. The aroma was of orange blossoms, fresh and tangy. My first sip also struck a citrusy, slightly sweet but hoppy taste, with a mildly bitter finish that doesn't linger very long - clean and refreshing! Overall - deeelicious!
