Served in a half pint
On-draft at the mothership itself in Kalamazoo!
A: Dreary golden yellow (almost like straw). Single (white) fingernail head.
S: Faint hops, floral notes, hay, orange zest, biscuit malt, and hint of spice. Inviting for a lager. I like!
T: Light biscuit malt character start to finish here. Not boring or dull, but well rounded as this basis for the beer is beautifully complimented by notes of lemon, orange zest, cracked hay, and dull earthy hops. Quite easy to drink!
M: Light bodied with medium carbonation.
O: A very good go at this usually often dreadful style. A crisp and refreshing beer that satisfies through and through. Worth the hunt and/or stop in Kalamazoo to try this beer. Warning though...it is not always on draft there.
Serving type: on-tap

C&C bottle number 11 of 313 poured into Lost Abbey tulip. I don't know why I hung onto this bottle so long, hopefully it's still got some zest.
A: Straw yellow color, near golden. Great lacing on this beer, it really has some good visual character. Frothy white head dissipates slowly, and leaves a pretty decent film on the shoulders of the lager. Obviously quite transparent and plenty of light getting thru.
N: Good amount of piney hop character coming through, with some mild fruitiness, like New Zealand Sauv Blanc grapes or nice spruce. No discernible corn presence, but an interesting bread character. Dry crisp.
T: The taste is more of the same from the nose. The pine is more of the throat sensation, with some real nice bright fruity character on the front. No malt really coming through, but more of that crisp bread character.
M: Punky. It's lively in the mouth, alot going on. Kind of drying, with proper carbonation.
D and O: Probably one of the better traditional American lagers I have ever had. I think it's great, maybe not quite typical of the style, but the hop addition was welcomed, and went nicely with what would otherwise be going on.
