The color of the beer is a clear pale gold, with a white bubbly head building only about half an inch high. Actually left some lacing on the glass.
The smell is surprisingly complex. Lemon, flowery hops, bread.
Tasting this light Lager, this rich complexity remains throughout the tasting. A well balanced, well brewed abd extremly drinkable Lager.

Pours a beautiful gold. Minimal head and lacing.

The aroma is filled with citrus and grain. Pleasant but light.

The taste is pretty standard for the style but perhaps more refined. The grain and citrus from the nose make themselves evident in the flavor as well as a bit of biscuit malt.

The body is thin as to be expected with a medium-light weight. Carbonation makes it more filling but comes across a bit aggressive. The finish is fairly dry and slightly sticky.

Overall this was a decent beer, but it doesn't stand out enough to warrant a repurchase.

Reviewed from session notes.

Pours out a lightly hazy golden straw color with a brief burst of fizzy head, no lacing. -Really- nice and strong floral / lemon / honeyed bread dough nose and flavor, (the flavor has slightly more breadiness than the nose, though) I'm quite impressed with the richness of the aroma for such a relatively low ABV beer, something I value over the concept of a 'clean' stripped down lager. The texture is light and well-carbonated, as it ought to be. The only major improvement I can think of is that it could use a lot more head.

It's dark in this bar, but it looks gold in color and only slightly hazy. Not much of a head. Average look. 3.0

Quiet nose. Some grain and some earthy/citrusy hops. Very subdued. 3.0

Crisp citrusy hop flavor peaks in the middle and finishes bitter with some husky grain notes. There's a light spice and booze note in the tailend. Borders on astringent with the pushy bitterness. 3.5

High carbonation pushes the feel around. Medium body thins out with all of these bubbles. Aggressive mouthfeel. 3.0

A so-so lager from Flying Dog. Brewed to specs, but I don't regret passing on a sixer. 4.0

A-Clear yellow, some carbonation, one finger head with some lacing.

S-Straw, malt, not much else. Boring and bland.

T-Straw, grass, spice, lemon. Very sweet, no bitterness. A large improvement from the nose. I was worried about this and the taste made my worries go away.

M-Light, not carbonation, crisp and refreshing.

O-A decent summer beer. I'm surprised I liked it as much as I did. Would be a nice beer to give to Macro drinkers.

Faintly hazed bright yellow with about a finger of bright white and lively head. Big hoppy nose even from a distance.

Nice sweet bready nose, rich grains with earthy and spicy hops. Smells like an exotic bakery of some kind.

Clean crisp and light in body. Flavors are a bit more subtle than the smells.Sweet breads up front with rich grains, pungent, spicy hops take hold of the tongue while sweetening spices balance the finish. Pretty well layered with complimentary flavors. Tastes like a spiced piece of pumpernickel but in an easy to drink liquid form. Slightly floral as well. Has a lot going on for a smaller beer. Aggressive yet highly drinkable. Very flying dog.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 12, 2012. It pours a hazy pale yellow with a short-lived fizzy white head. The aroma is of light grains, pale malts, pepper, and a more abundant citrus lemon note. The body is smooth and light to medium with some acidity. The taster has a short pale malt beginning that quickly erupts into pine and citrus zest. The ending is tart but short lasting.

Seems like a good summer brew on a very lovely evening on my deck.
Poured into little 7oz glass, like the lagers I used to drink in my college days.
Very soft and pleasant pale/pils malt aroma. Hints of flower hops. Nice.
Very attractive. Dense white head. Brilliantly clear golden/yellow with lots and lots of active carbonation.
Soft pale malt flavor, but stronger presence of the hops with clear hop flavor and an apparent and moderately long bitterness that adds a thirst quenching quality. Hop qualities increase as warms and airs out. But also as the beer warms the malt flavor show stronger in a very nice manner.
Moderate body and smooth lager carbonation.
A nice lager. Bitterness is more than I can appreciate for style, at the cooler temperature - fortunately balanced out in time by the malt.

3.38/5  rDev -2.9%

A: Pale lemon pour with a brilliant clarity shows a light mention of effervesce. Eggshell white head is thin and whispy and doesnt care to stick around long nor lace much.

S: The aroma shows some sour lemony funk and grains. Some cold steel, overall strength of aroma is moderately low.

T: The flavor is sour and funky of lemon skins, citrusy flower hops that are rather strong. Some lemon straw rounds things out.

M: Medium body, sour and funky lemony and grain mouthful, small carbonation.

O: Overall a lager with some sour lemony funk edge. a pale lager, crisp, well hopped with a lingering leave of lemon straw. A bit assertive at first but you warm up to this about mid stride.

3.68/5  rDev +5.7%

Pours a big creamy 1.5 finger head that fades fairly slowly, with sticky lacing, over fairly clear tan colored beer.

NOse has some nice lager aromas, hints of light fruit and crispness, a soft toasty malt, light toasty almost pilsner like, hint of floral grassy hops.

Taste comes on stronger than I expected, quite a bit of malt comes in with light toastiness, almost acid malt like taste, little pilsner malt like. Then hops, starting slow at first with mild bitterness and some floral light fruity and grassy hints, and moves more aggressive to a fairly bitter starting to get a little spicy even. Hint of lager fruit underneath all that. Finish is fairly dry with more hops lingering, hint of malty flavor.

Mouth is med to a bit lighter bodied, fluffy with good carb.

Overall OK but not great, hops get a little overbearing, malts are nice at first but turn a bit less tasty after a few seconds, not bad, just not great.

Ba Review #183
Served On: 07/05/2012
Glassware: Tumbler Pint
Labeled ABV: 4.7%
Date/ Code: -

This was in the latest year-round mixed 12 pack that Flying Dog puts out.

Look: The beer poured a fairly clear bright yellow. The head was a coating of white foam. Carbonation level was strong. Lacing was sparse, but present.

Smell: Clean aroma with some lemon rind and sweet biscuit notes.

Taste: First was the lemon citrus and then a faint spice note - coriander maybe? The finish was a crisp bitterness that was expected with such a light palate. Mouth feel was thin, but certainly had more substance than a macro-lager.

This was a great offering to enjoy on a hot summer afternoon. Temps have been in the 100's here lately, so I was glad I had some of these.
