L: Honey gold. Head quickly fades to an ivory ring of permanently sticking lace.

S: Lemongrass and malt.

T: Cracker malt, hops, and a touch of citrus.

F: Light-med weight with good carbonation.

O: A fine lager that I’d drink again. This European Pale is a solid notch above the five I’ve had previously. There is hope for the style.

Had this with pizza the first time and I was impressed with this lager. I just picked up a 6 of cans at Ace hardware in Edmonds Wa. To me it's got it all for a lager.... what a lager should taste like.

I saw a 6 pack of this beer at Safeway and picked it up, wondering about the odd, green plastic caps that replace the six pack ring/yoke that you usually see. And THAT is my first complaint. It stinks like some strong cheap guy soap or something. Don't try drinking from the can, because the whole top of the can smells of that thing, and it ruins any appreciation of the beer. So. For starters, pour it into a glass - don't take it to the beach or the lake expecting to toss back a few.

Sounds like everbody else here likes the beer itself. Not my favorite lager, though. LOL, I'm old and not as adventurous.

If you live around Portland (OR) you know it's an ale-heavy area. We enjoy a lager, usually after a summer day's chores. This beer fits the bill. Clear, light golden and moderate carbonation. Aroma is light beer with no off notes. Taste is...beer. Simple and refreshing with moderate ABV. Clean taste, hops to balance the malt. No sweetness to my taste. Here's to summer!

Really nice spin on a Euro Pale Lager, this is a gorgeous beer, golden yellow, slightly off-white head, some lacing follows down the side of the glass as I pound this like a 16-penny nail.

The smell is grassy hops, of course, but there's a distinct sweetness, in assuming from the malt bill. That sweetness is present on the taste, too, and makes this really crushable.

This is a nice introduction to these guys. Wish I had a couple more to slam down.

I like this beer a whole lot, especially now that it comes in cans. We always stop by and pick up some cans when we are playing on the WA side of the river. It has that easy drinking lager feel while still delivering on the malty mouthfeel and satisfying finish.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a shaker style pint glass. Not dating on the can.

Appearance: Crystal clear straw golden colored body with barely a 1/2 a fingers worth of head.

Aroma: Grains, lemon and white grape juice.

Taste: Grains, crackers, lemon.

Mouthfeel: Light mouthfeel, with a crisp clean body and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a really well done lager. Surprised at the depth of flavor and the way this one is made. Thirst quenching, dry finish, great taste. Tasty beer to drink on a hot day.

Thanks to beertunes for this beer!

A thanks goes out to the sultan of canned beer, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is sweet, malts, grains. Taste is malts, grains, hints of lemon, little of the sweetness in the aroma. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing beer on a summer night.

On tap at the brewpub in White Salmon.
A solid but unexceptional lager. Unexceptional compared to craft brewers, that is. As claimed, it's an "easy drinking lager with "real" flavor".

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Coors tumbler glass.

Look : Haze, pineapple color, 80% opaque. Head is large at 3 fingers and then recedes to a creamy ring about 1/2 finger.

Smell : Orange, blueberry, biscuit malt, yeast. Faint aroma.

Taste : Hoppy with grapefruit rind, orange rind, biscuit. Has a nice yeasty finish. I'd have this again.

Feel : Creamy but still poppy and bubbly. Nice balance of carbonation and creaminess. Dry finish.

Overall : I'd drink it again. It's a nice refreshing lager especially on a night like tonight.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates to patches with light lacing. Aroma of light sweet malt, grain, hints of melon and citrus. Flavor light biscuit malt, grain, European hops, hint of lemon citrus. Light to medium bodied. A nice biscuity lager with some pleasant fresh grain and hints of melon and citrus. Although this hews closely to a traditional light lager formula, the malt is more robust and flavorful and there are other interesting light flavors in the background. Light lagers are not my favorite style, and I wasn't expecting much, but this one won me over and I enjoyed this quite a bit. I'd return to this readily if in the mood for this style.

Attractive golden color but a short-lived foam in the Bons Voeux chalice. Pleasant beery aroma. Sparkly carbonation on the tongue. A sharp note, but more like club soda. Little or no trace of bitterness, but there's a twiggy note.

Mineral tang and a slight malty sweetness. Seems thick in the mouth for a light lager. Not very flavorful, though less offensive than the typical Euro lager. From the 12 oz can purchased at Elizabeth Station in Bellingham.

Pours a finger of head on a clear gold body.
The aroma is a great grain smell.
The taste is a nice dry bitter, lemon and a touch of honey.
The texture is crisp.
Pretty good.

Had a Ball jar at Ned Ludd as dinner started up. This is a cool, simple beer. It appeared a clear straw gold with a short white head. The aroma and flavor have a mix of pale, barely toasted barley and lightly fruity lager character. It tastes like an all-malt layer or pre-Prohibition American pilsner. There's nothing crazy, just a clean, honest beer.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Actually a very nice light lager, a style I wouldn't normally be interested in, but that came in the sampler set. Poured a clear, golden yellow with a small white head that left some nice lacing on the glass. Basic aroma of grains and light hops. Bready taste, grainy, light hops, and some lemony notes. Light body, and very easily drinkable, even if not bursting with flavor.

On tap at Olympic Provisions PDX 8.26.11 $5 pint, only draft beer available.

Light gold clear body, not a lot of carbonation, quick dissipation, above average lacing. Some malty sweetness, a bit of floral hops on the nose, but not much of either. Taste mirrors nose, the sweetness has a corn like quality, blah, hops became a bit more pronounced as it warmed. Mouthfeel well on light side of medium, a bit of effervescence. Utterly unremarkable, but heh it's better than Bud--but not by much. Pass.

Crystal clear golden colour with a smooth white head. Fair head retention. No lacing.

Light spicy hop aroma with a hint of grain. Mild and unassuming but somewhat unpleasant.

Slightly vegetal flavour with grainy malt. Feels like DMS but it could just be corn. A touch disappointing.

Mediumlight body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

This is an okay lager that probably does a decent job for macro drinkers. Not my style.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear, bright, golden yellow with a tall, fluffy, white head that had very good retention and moderate lacing.

The aroma was mostly nice grain with a nice yeast presence and smooth hopping. The flavor profile was similar, a good blend of grain, hops and yeast.

The body was nice and crisp. Drinkability was very good, the beer went down very easy and I'm having a second one. Overall, a very nice beer. Worth trying if you're in the gorge or see it on tap somewhere.
