Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a clear amber color with a small white head. The head fades very fast leaving a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is light overall with a little bit of a bready and cracker smell mixed with some caramel sweetness. There is also a touch of herb and grass that round out the taste.
Taste – The taste begins with a slightly more caramel sweet bready flavor that has a little bit of a graininess. As the taste moves forward the initial flavors remain strong, but are joined by a light grain and herb. The mix of flavors take the taste to the end and leave one with a slightly sweeter, but simple and nice lager taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is medium in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is normal. Overall the feel is decent for the sweeter and more moderate tastes of the brew and makes for a easy sipping brew.
Overall – Slightly more sweet but, nice and flavorful, and easy drinking. A well crafted and very drinkable beer.

Aroma is big husky/grainy malts and fruit/hint of lime. The flavor is grains/malts, fruit, a hint of lime and a slightly tart/mildly sweet/beery finish.

568ml can. Malty, a bit sweet, bready, light grassiness, crisp, and clean. Easy drinking, just like the can suggests. Overall, a solid American Lager.

Can, canned June 19th..must have sat at the warehouse for a spell.

Pours a clear straw yellow with oodles of foam, very nice lacing.

Smells malty, lightly hoppy, grainy, some corn. The hoppy notes are very Noble like.

Balanced flavours all around. Noble hop like bitterness, grain and light caramel malt sweetness, less corn character in the taste vs the smell.

Great mouthfeel, I reckon.

Yeah, this will do me just fine. Tasty and easy drinking, welcome back to the well brewed Lagers that I am seeing more of.

On tap. Poured out a clear, golden yellow color with a small, fluffy, white head of foam. It smelled of caramel, toffee and floral note. Sweet caramel taste with a mild bitter bite.

Bright and clear golden body; very lively, roiling carbonation; decent white head, frothy and creamy. Clean aroma; a bit light on the nose; slightly grassy and spicy with a bit of light malt. Slight biscuit backbone; mild esters present; low-key hop bitterness rounding things out. Medium-light body; crisp and delicate on the palate; fine carbonation tickle to the palate; semi-dry overall.

Great Divide has made a light and refreshing beer. There is nothing earth-shattering here, just a very fine and refreshing light beer.
