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.
