I got this single 12oz brown bottle at the Jewel//Osco store in Glendale Heights, IL as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99, making this single bottle $1.67. No freshness date.

The beer poured a fairly clear golden/orange color with a big 3-finger rocky white head that lasted several minutes, but for some reason left very little lacing or I would have rated it higher in looks.

Big citrus hop aroma on top of a lager beer smell. It really smelled nice.

The first sip delivers some bitter citrus hop flavors - mostly lemon, orange peel, and grapefruit. Then some sweet malts kick in for balance, but then it returns to some really bitter citrus hop flavors at the finish.

Light bodied, but crisp with above avaerage carbonation.

This was a very unique and interesting pale lager, and I liked it a lot.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Amber color with a thicker white head that lingered. Lots of carbonation. Medium lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops and citrus, maybe some pine notes in the background.

Mouthfeel/Taste: A little rought medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops with a subtle sweet citrus on the after taste.

Overall: Not bad. I would have this one again.

Straw yellow colored with fine bubbles rising up to a white tightly bubbled head that recedes quickly. Aroma of creamed corn and cotton candy, floral notes. Flavors of honey malt, peppery spiciness, some burnt rubber offering sharp bitterness. Hops are subtle, somewhat floral and spicy. Mouthfeel is a bit slick, but finishes tingly. Overall an okay beer.

12 oz bottle served ina pint glass.
Look great in the glass with excellent clarity, plenty of visible carbonation and a large, creamy bone-colored head. The head is exceptionally durable.

Aroma: fruity (citrus) APA with a solid malt base. Approaches 4.
Flavor: followas aroma. Great balance. Mildly bitter.

Feel: excellent - lively but soft. Medium body. Smooth.

O: an exceptional version of this style.
