Pours from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Hazy pale yellow color with a small white head. Average head retention and some streaks of lacing. Aroma and taste include sweet maltiness, a little citrus and some wheat bitterness. Everything is fairly subdued and subtle. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Would make a good summertime thirst quencher. I could see pitchers of this beer with friends.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12oz can dated 08 29 18 poured into a pint glass shows a pale, cloudy, yellow- tinted body, almost like used water, and very briefly sustains a 1/4" cap of white fluffy bubbles, leaving minimal spotted lacing.

Aroma is bready malt and a slight hint of citrus.

Flavor is a citrusey wheat bread with a clean finish.

Mouthfeel is clean and finishes wet.

Overall a just better than average all day drinker.

Wow this is really good. Nice easy drinking lager, but with a little more flavor. I hope I see 15 packs of this during Summer, because I could see drinking a few of these by the pool.

L - Bright yellow/orange with 1 full finger of head and lots of lace left all over the glass. Gorgeous brew

S - Pine hops

T - Very hoppy, and not bitter. Thus a lager. Easy to drink and well balanced.

F - Light body and medium carbonation

O - An awesome hoppy beer, great when you just are a little worn out on IPAs

12 ounce can poured into a nonic glass.
The beautiful artwork on the can accurately conveys the quality craftsmanship that has gone into this Lager.
Trigo introduces itself as a pretty golden yellow, somewhat hazy with some lacing .
The aroma has nice citric notes with a pine resin accompaniment
which carries over in the taste. The malt gives a sweetness and balances the opening hoppy notes. It is a marriage of the hoppy, strong qualities of good IPAs and a convivial Lager with those social malts. This creation of Founders is a class act-I hope that a lot of people will try and become fans of this very good representative of an emerging style.

Poured from a 12 oz can into an Accomplice IPA glass

L: Nearly clear light golden pour with thick fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Floral hops and wheat mixed with lemony citrus.

T/F: Wheat/grain backbone... with a light hop profile. Strong lemon citrus, grass, and floral character. Milder pine. Bubblegum and honey. Soft creamy carbonation and light body.

O: A very drinkable wheat lager... good combination flavors, light and tasty. A really good effort from Founders.
