Bottle poured into a pokal glass.
India Style Pale Lager. That has me saying "Mmmkay?"
A- 1-finger, khaki head. Clean, deep golden body with just the slightest haze to start. Moderate carbonation. Great stick. Head retention is decent. It sticks around as a light film.
S- Very hoppy in the bottle. Lots of spruce and tropical fruit. Not much different after the pour. Maybe some spicy hops. Slightest hint of doughy malts. Bold hop aromas have me thinking "fresh" and "hop bomb."
T- More balance than the aroma would suggest. Lots of pine/spruce and grapefruit zest from the hops. But also a clean, malt I could barely pick up in the nose. Cracker-like I'd say.
M- Bone dry. Moderate carbonation. Less bite from the hops, more of a dry effect.
O- It should get hammered as an American Pale Lager, but I can't bring myself to do it. It's more like the ever-popular session IPA, and a good one at that. Just enough malt backbone that it doesn't strike me as hop-water. Given the options, I'd take this over most session IPAs. Maybe a side-by-side with Founders All Day is in store (though I'd generally rather buy Two Hearted, Huma Lupa, ect. And just drink less). I'm still baffled at the pricing points of the lower ABV beers. Please, somebody brew the low ABV stuff and drop the sixer price by a buck or two. I'd be all up on it.
