12 oz bottle. Pours deep hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head. Aroma is of floral hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Good amount of floral hops nicely balanced on the palate by biscuit malt. Finish is long and dry. Very good brew.

So I came across this by accident durning an IPA tour, I was randomly grabbing mix picks from a local grocery store and when I brought it home and open it up after a few hour of chilling and poured it out I was taken a back. Its yellow? I thought, a yellow IPA what the? But then I took a closer look India pale lager? Hmm never really had one of those. It was sweet but hoppy smooth but stiff a near perfect balance so I admit that my review maybe green but it's just personal preference. It was all good but it felt a little flat which is a welcomed characteristic is any good beer I had. But other than feel it was enjoyable.

On tap at the Trapp Family Lodge Bierhall. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a small amount of head. Lots of lacing. Sweet floral and citrus hop aroma. Grapefruit, lemon, and tangerine. The taste is much like the aroma. Sweet citrus at first followed up by the floral hops. Lightly toasted malts towards the end with a floral hop finish. Grapefruit aftertaste. Dry mouthfeel. Lightly carbonated. Overall, worth seeking out.

Enjoyed this in a flight of the oktoberfest, Kolsch and Dunkel. Enjoyed them all but think this one was best. Most character, smooth finish, slightly bitter. Still a relatively new brewery so thinking they will improve over time. Not the finest I have sampled so far in Vermont, but worth the trip to the brewery. Lovely bar, merchandise area, atrium and outdoor patio. Clean, bright amd friendly makes the sipping even better.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a soft hazy yellow color with a slight transparency to it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Semi-moderate lacing runs here and there. The smell takes the crisp sweet floral hops to bounce upon some delicate smooth sweet bready malts. The taste was basically the same with a sly little bite of the floral hops sliding into the aftertaste and then on into the finish whish is somewhat sticky wet. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a crisp sweet sessionability about it. Carbonation rides fairly low so some stickiness runs about, nothing overbearing, feels good and still some light hop harshness comes to give it a slight bitter/harshness, why, well, it just does. Overall, as an India pale lager, I’d say it’s a good one, definitely fits everything von Trapp says it should. I’d have this again.

Drank June 2017. Not sure if this year's version?

A: slightly hazy pale yellow amber color

S: grapefruit, earthy herbal hops, crackers, pine, and a crisp lager taste

T: herbal hops, dry frackers, grapefruit and pine. A little bit of that grainy lager taste as well

M: lighter side of medium. Medium carbonation

O: refreshing and relatively easy to drink. It's on the piney side, which lends to that earthy bitterness, but not overwhelming. It's clean and crisp as well. Worth a try
