Session Lager is light amber gold, with not much of a head but crisp carbonation nonetheless. Smells like cider and malt to me. This is as pure a taste as you could hope for in a lager. A slight tartness is rounded out by smooth malt flavor. Crisp. Delicious. Though this is straightforward stuff, I've never had anything quite like it.

Pale gold with trailers of bubbles and steady snow white foam. Grass and soap on the nose with sweet grain.
Crackery malts with more slight grain sweetness and light noble coriander hop bite.
Sweet finish, clean linger. Soft, round, crisp, light.

Sweet and sour malts, enough hops, and good body. Old school. Lives up to the name.

This is as straightforward as it gets for a lager, in a good way. Pours a nice gold color with a finger and a half white head that fizzes away and leaves some lacing. Smell is of sweet malts, and light flowery hops. Taste follows the nose, comes in with sweet malts, some breadiness, and finishes slightly bitter thanks to the hops. Also a slight, slight hint of citrus. The big thing about this beer though is it's smoothness and drinkability. This thing goes down super easy, very refreshing. Overall, this is a great example of the pale lager style, and is replacing longboard lager as my go to lager as we speak.

Poured from 11oz bottle into Samuel Adams Noble Pils branded pilsner glass.

Appearance: Clear gold color with a large but thin white head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind a little bit of a ring of lace.

Smell: Sweet grains dominate with a touch of grassiness and mild citrus alongside a hint of other fruit.

Taste: Begins with a light grainy sweetness, finishing with fruits and a bit of grassiness.

Mouthfeel: Light in body with light, pleasant carbonation and a very clean, very refreshing finish.

Overall: Not all lagers are too thin, flavorless, and over-carbonated. This beer proves that. Not necessarily great as a beer, but very good for its style.
