A> Poured from a pint can, this brew pours a straw-colored gold and is quite hazy. Beautiful 2+ finger head that is thick and fluffy, very good retention.

S> Strong aroma pouring out of the glass. The hops come across as grassy with lemon-like citrus with a sweet grain background that has hints of apricot.

T> The flavor profile is pretty hop-forward, especially for the style. The hops are still grassy but here the citrus takes on more grapefruit like characteristics with moderate bitterness. The malt is fairly subdued, the flavor profiles are much akin to the aroma but more muted. Sweet, apricot-like fruitiness, and just a hint of darker roast.

M> Good carbonation, pretty thin but appropriate for the style. Drinkable while maintaining a bit of complexity.

O> A tasty, well brewed hop-forward lager that is very drinkable while being fairly complex. Although it might be a little too much for people who do not like the bitterness of hops.

Clear pale golden color. Rich and tangy flavor with an appealing hoppy burn. Light body plus a sudsy mouthfeel. Lovely grainy aromas with a flowery nose.

I would say this tastes more like a hoppy Pilsener than any typical lager, but that's a good thing. I don't know what kind of hops they use, but it's an appealing resiny sting with some piney aromas. The mellow corn flavor is a revelation; maybe it's just a matter of brewing with enough grain to end up with this much flavor.

A big surprise at how good this is. I rate it among the best lagers I've had. Another outstanding brew from Ft. George. From the 16 oz can purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Served from the can into a pilsner glass.

A- Poured a hazy light golden color with bright white fluffy head that left dense lacing.

S- Big crisp pilsner malt, lemon, and bready notes.

T- Some pilsner malt notes, light lemon notes, and some big kinda skunky grainy notes. Moderate bitterness for the style.

M- Lighter bodied, slightly watery finish, and soft carbonation.

O- Not a bad beer, but not very exciting. It beats a lot of other american adjunct lagers though. It was interesting to try a craft brewery's take on the style.

Pours orange-gold with a thick white head. Hazey, golden/orange. Floral hop aroma with some hints of lemon zest. Semi-sweet malt profile, noticeable corn flavor that quickly makes way for a spicy hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Extremely dry finish. Simple but tasty lager.
