Poured from 12oz bottle into Pilsener glass. No date.

L: Light Amber, half finger width off-white head has poor retention.

S: Smells of citrus and pine hops with spicy rye.

T: Well balanced of the pine hops and rye malts, the citrus is a backnote.

F: Medium body, very crisp, hop residuals linger.

O: Not bad, I would drink this again.

Brown in color with a fingernail of off white covering the top. Heavy lacing. The aroma is of earthy rye and grassy hops. The earthy rye dominates the flavor but i'm tasting the grassy hops at the back of the palate. You can also taste the alcohol. The mouth is chewy and slightly warm with alcohol.

If you're an IPL fan, you will enjoy this lager. Pours a very attractive amber with a modest white head. Sports a proud piney, citrus aroma. The flavor is crisp, hoppie and a tad spicy. Enjoy!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Darker amber color with a thin off white head.

Smell: Citrus and pine notes.

Mouthfeel/ Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops and pine with a hint of bread like notes.

Overall: Good beer. Not what I expected from this one, it drinks like an IPA.
