Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Served in September 2012.American light lagers and Pilsners are easy to drink and refreshing. They are not, however, easy for a craft brewer to make – but we are always up for a challenge. Pilsner malt and flaked rice provide sweet cereal grain notes while German and Czech hops add spiciness and a balanced bitterness to the finish. Cold fermented and aged with a German lager yeast, the palate is clean with a snappy finish.

Loved the brewer, must when in Cambridge.

a) Pours a fizzy one finger head over a crystal clear straw lemon body, supported by a rising hail of bubbles. Lasts and laces.
s) Mostly grain, doughy malt, grassy hops, faint. too light.
t) Billed as hoppy pilsner - lacking in much nuance, lemon or hop. straw, bready malt, pilsner malts, grassy hop.
f) Lighter body, crisp, soft lager, and abundant carb. Mineral core makes it.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice looking clear yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated fairly quickly. Thin messy lacing shows some light rings of lacing. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. The smell started off with some sweet citrus hops, then some grassy hops slide in underneath and then combine with a light biscuity maltiness. The taste was basically the same with a light wet citrus to grassy to biscuity aftertaste. Smooth sweet, semi-crisp finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a mighty fine sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Light pilsener - like stickiness slides across my tongue. Overall, this was a pretty good semi-hoppy pilsener. At least for me, I’d have again. And would love to have with some brats.

12 ounce can into lager glass, best before 12/24/2016. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/straw color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of lemon, cracker, bread dough, biscuit, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, cracker, bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread dough, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great balance and robustness of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/creamy, fairly crisp, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a great pale lager! All around great balance and robustness of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and well balanced; without being too bitter or drying. A very enjoyable offering, and outstanding example of the style.

Solid American Pale Lager, great for a midday drink with a bit of a hop to it. Just a touch of sour at the end but is very crisp making for a satisfying drink.

12 oz. can

Pours clear straw yellow with a quickly receding frothy white foam head. Smells like sweet rice, biscuity crackery honey malt, some floral citrus, green apple, pear, minty tobacco spice, with bitter earthy herbal grass and fresh pine. Tastes like bitter earthy herbal grass, sweet rice, biscuity crackery honey malt, floral citrus, green apple, pear, with minty tobacco spice and fresh pine. Feels light-medium bodied, soft and creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a nice and unique hoppy pilsner.

The color is a clear gold-yellow with a very slight head. A smell of some earthy hops is followed by a balanced malt/hop flavor. It's a very light-bodied, overall.

golden straw appearance, thick white head. nose is sweet grains, yeast, light grassyness and a very subtle hoppyness. pilsner malt up front, grainy, nice peppery and lemony hop note, finish is very crisp and clean. mouthfeel is on point, light but not watery. overall this is top notch brew as far as a light and easy drinker goes, worth trying!
