One of the bottles from the variety pack. New to me.

This pours a clear golden straw color with nice foaming. It’s lightly hopped aroma with hints of grass and straw. The flavor is crisp with a light fruity roundness to it. Finishes dry. Enjoyable enough.

3.51/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on 3/17/14.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and peach aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, earth, peach, and citrus zest 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 an interesting peach like fruit quality I am getting in both the smell and taste.

Bottle served (appearance rated average cuz you can't skip form fields), fantastic brew. Hop-strong for a lager. Aroma is bready, but with a ton of apricot/peach notes. Mouth feel is fulfilling for it's style, even with fairly light carbonation. Somewhat piney from the hops, but super refreshing. Solid brew for summertime.

3.81/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours a crystal clear, beautiful vibrant orange with a 2-finger white head. Fair retention, resulting in a sparse island of suds in the center of the glass and around the edge. Lacing is small and spotty with good stick.

Smell - Aroma hits on notes of grain, grass and citrus at the forefront. Subtle bready undertone.

Taste - Hops are predominant, with citrus character hitting first. Malt base is pretty much buried beneath the hop profile, but what is there comes across as either bread and/or caramel. Big grassy bite and some mild lemon pith in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with fair to lively carbonation. Crisp, dry finish.

Overall - Could certainly pass as one of those trending "IPL's" but is being pushed as an innovative American Lager. Eh, marketing. Pretty solid brew regardless.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body. Darker than most lagers.
The aroma is quite fragrant: flowers, grain and musty. Nice though.
The taste is grainy malt sweetness with a descent balance of mild bitterness.
The texture is a little gritty with moderate carbonation.
It's a nice, full bodied lager.

Bottle poured into a Speakeasy Ales & Lagers pint glass

A: Pours deep golden yellow with a frothy light tan head. Darker than I would have expected, in a good way.

S: Fruity, sorta peach/apricot, some citrus and grassy notes, with light malt sweetness.

T: Crisp citrus hops, grapefruit and orange, some peachy/apricot fruitiness, a bit grassy, with just enough malt to balance things, and a very nice floral touch on the finish.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, crisp but well backed with substance.

O: A lot more flavor than I was expecting out of this one. It's pretty crisp, but also got a solid body to back to back it up. Surprisingly good beer.
