Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Flywheel Bright Lager

The kinetic beauty of spicy hops grabs you by the nose and lets you know: this is German-inspired beer. A mild, bready malt sweetness greets you at the lips, smoothing the crisp hop flavors. Flywheel is meant for bombastic celebrations of singing voices and clamoring mugs. But then, that first contented moment of happy hour is uniquely celebratory as well.

Pours a clear gold with some pure white foam.
The nose is lots of biscuit and warm bread, a little bit of spice and maybe a hint of citrus?
Good tasting brew with nice, bready malts, a little sweetness, some spice and a hint of lemon.
Mouthfeel is medium, crisp and clean.
Overall, I wouldn't mind drinking a couple of these.
