I went through 5 gallons on my home tap, and I checked the labeling multiple times to make sure that I had the right beer. If it wasn't so clearly marked, I could have sworn that this was a pale ale or even an IPA. The beer pours with a deep yellow-amber color and a thick, creamy off-white head. The aroma and flavor are much more hop-forward than expected, with prominent notes of grapefruit and grass, but there is also a substantial caramel malt backbone. The mouthfeel seemed even more off-style, with a much more resinous texture and little of the crispness I expected (and desired) from a lager, even from an American amber lager. Overall, it was different, interesting, and quite unexpected, but it was just too far from what I was looking for in a good lager.
Serving type: on-tap
