Poured into a pint glass.

One of the better American style lagers out there. A complexity that is not exhibited in lagers with adjuncts. A nice beer to interject between heavy beers – a palate cleaner. It’s hard to rate these APLs high since they are not my favorite style, but this one is rated high and I will drink it again.

A – Pours a clear light straw/yellow color, well carbonated, two-finger off-white rocky head that quickly dissipates. No lacing to speak of.

S – Crackers, faint lemon, slight baked bread, maybe some green apple.

T – Mild herbal bitterness, pale maltiness, crackers.

MF – Medium light bodied, crisp (due to carbonation), dry finish.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a bright golden color. Chill hazed. Rocky white head settles after a short time. Plenty of web-like, sticky lacing.

S: Soft grassy and floral hop aroma with hints of light fruits. Biscuity and toasty malt base, slightly coarse and a touch wheaty too.

T: Oily hops, very floral. Green grass. Vague fruitiness from the hops as well. Toasted biscuit, coarse wheat. Dry and clean overall. Rye takes hold on the back end. Dry, spicy rye finish with oily, grassy, and modestly bitter hops riding along with it.

M: Lightish medium body. Creamy and full with a bit of that frothy wheat feel. Airy, but with a sense of substance too. Scrubbing carbonation. Very good.

O: Plenty of flavor packed into small, drinkable lager. I like the use of rye and wheat here, it really gives the body a full, multi-dimensional feel. This beer was somewhat of a surprise to me, as it's much more fleshed out and well-rounded than the average American-made 'sessionable' lager.

(Served in a strange)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear lemon yellow with a snow white creamy head that pushes above the glass and is supported by a violent swirling of carbonation.

S- The slightly sulfury Noble hops aroma is dry with a slight woody character to it.

T- The green dry pithy hops has a slight green sulfur mellow hint to the dry finish with more green pith flavor lingering after each sip.

M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- The light crisp pithy flavor gets a bit bitey and not very drinkable without other flavors to cut into that bitterness.

To me, a lager is all about balance. While I'm not sure this delivers on that fully, it's certainly not a bad brew. The hops are out in full force, especially for a lager, with pine, citrus, grain, and general dryness on the nose and mouth. Malt is minimal here. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, I can't say I'm impressed, as the hops make this a bit too dry and don't give it enough complexity. However, this is an enjoyable beer, a lager that tastes like a beer rather than an adjunct-filled macro brew. Give me a wider malt flavor and I'd be a happy man.
