I picked up the shock and awe twelve pack for convenience sake and enjoyed this 12 oz from an IPA glass chilled.
The color is dark golden with great clarity and thick 2 finger cap of off white with fine bead. The carbonation is visible in the liquid and ringlets of lace stick to the glass. The smell has that familiar lemony noble hop scent which also brings a little tea-like herbal scent and mild malt in the nose with light yeast ester. The feel is good with a moderate carbonation level and mild sweetness, with more bitterness than some pilsners and mostly dry finish with very light alcohol and lighter body.
The taste has a very nice hop level with some gentle green fresh noble type hop flavor -a good citrus zest aspect. The bitterness level is gentle enough that the taste brings out a mild malt element. The taste is pretty full for a lager of this style...I expected interesting things, but overall it is something I could see myself drinking...not quite an India pale lager but assertive enough to fit the Pilsner category perhaps - drinkable and flavorful.
