Drank from an 11 fluid oz. bottle
Enjoy by: 08/09/12
Served in a pint glass

The beer poured a crystal clear, brassy yellow color. A two-finger, bubbly, off-white crop of rocky foam topped the liquid. The head quickly dissipated to a lasting ring.

Dry, powdery notes dominated the aroma initially. Some cereal grains came through as well. There was a slight grassy hop presence. Touch of sulfur.

The flavor profile was quite similar to nose. Crisp, powdery, lager yeast notes came through loud and clear. Some grassy hops appeared in the center. A dry, crackery malt base held everything together. The finish was dry with hints of sulfur. As the beer warmed, semi-sweet fruity notes were detectible.

The mouthfeel was fairly ordinary. Medium bodied with a crisp, bubbly effervescence.

American pale lagers rarely excite me, and this beer was no exception. Although I inadvertently purchased my bottle after its expiration date had passed, I have a hard time believing it was much better when fresh.

Thin white bubbly head and pale gold color. Aroma is sweet, grainy and slightly vinous with grassy, piney, very "American" hoppiness. Flavor exhibits a lot of sweet American lager flavor without the cheap adjunct nastiness. Very clean. Finishes with a slight tinge of hoppiness. A very clean, sessionable beer for summer, or any time really. Think of it as a better tasting "stubby bottle beer".
