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.

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.

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.

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.

Appearance: Looks a lot like a macrobrew: copper colored with decent foam and lacing, noticeable carbonation.
Smell: Grains, grass, malt. Hints of hops.
Taste: Grassy and grainy malts, citrus, caramel.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slight hop bitterness in the finish.
The Verdict: Not bad. Plenty of flavor, well balanced, and full of quality. This is a good example of what a craft brewer can do with a regular session lager.

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.

A-Pours a bright, clear copper color. Well built head is very frothy and it retains quite well, all the while leaving puffy lacing.
S-It smell like a well-hopped Vienna Lager. The lager yeast is relatively soft and I get a noticeable combination of caramel sweetness and simple hoppiness.
T-Hops are more aggressive here, they don't really exude specific flavor comps but I do get a decent floral and citrusy flavor. The yeast is still softer and the maltiness is probably the most memorable aspect of the beer. I think of caramel and bitter bread crust.
M-Light bodied moderate bitterness and carbonation. Easy to drink. Body is light but still have a bit of weight to it.
O-I'm not very partial to this one.
