12 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 3/17/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy pale golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, apricot, mango, melon, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon zest, orange peel, apricot, mango, melon, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, apricot, mango, melon, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very nice hoppy Helles lager style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Canned 4/14/15.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and slight citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, grass, citrus zest, and tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice citrus and tropical hop characteristics that come from the late hopping.

Serving type: can.

12 oz can from a six pack from Fred Meyer in S.Salem $8.49 Clear bright golden yellow beer with a large frothy white head. Nice clean bready doughy malts with a a touch of grassy hop..just a touch. Balanced taste with the hops showing more..its strangely grainy though.. OK to good mouth feel. Its nice but the graininess is off putting..not as clean a finish as i would like.
