This beer is a somewhat intense (for a light style) sort of dark gold; it's pretty clear, but not completely simply because it's such a thick, heavy sort of dark yellow. An effervescent sort of activity keeps up the head, which is actually impressive from the start. It rises to almost three fingers, firm and billowing. The thick, fluffy off white-head then settles at its lowest to a full finger's height, where it remains for the entire remainder of the session. It leaves lacing in craggy sheets and legging.
The nose is surprisingly light given the structure. The interplay between the yeast is interesting, giving a somewhat fruity note alongside something earthier under a base of pale malts. It also gets a little husky and herbal. It takes some work to draw everything out.
The flavor goes sweeter with an undertone of grains. Pale malts still make the base, and there's a little bit of an herbal quality to the light hopping. As a pale lager, it's a weak style, but I'll take this over many out there and certainly almost any adjunct.
The feel isn't as crisp as I would think, sort of softening out, and the light body gets a tad thin. It's okay, and it should be this light, but it could use more depth. The carbonation is even and solid the whole way through.

The Take Two retro from Two Bros is a very good American Pale Lager. The beer pours a clear golden yellow with thin white head that is lacing. The scent is faint...some grassy notes and piney hops. The taste is very good balanced lager. The mouthfeel is light to medium body with good carbaontaion. Overall this is a great session ale....I like this more than the path...it comes off the pallet clean.

Pours a very pale orange. Very clear. The head is a fairly bright white, a finger thick at best, but lacks significant retention. Decent lacing as the head falls and the beer warms.
Pilsner malts are mostly what I pick up. There's a slight floral scent, but it's mostly the pils malt and some lager yeast.
You can almost taste the different yeasts fighting each other. The boring lager yeast and pilsner malts give you that ho hum taste, but then the ale yeast gives sharper edges and some actual flavor that make the lager worth drinking. Very peppery, with a caramel malt finish.
It's got some sharp spicy notes from beginning to end. Faint floral, earthy feel. Crisp with slight sweetness. Some carbonation in the end, mild bitterness.
It's a much better beer than I expected, but very strange. Easy to drink, very easy actually. More or less a session beer with crisp flavors.
