A great golden amber color to this beer. Very carbonated. A fingers worth of foam. Taste was of a standard lager....which is fitting based on the name. Rather fizzy on the tongue that leaves a clean pallet. Flavors unlock as it warms up...a mild caramel and nuttyness to my taste. A decent lager.

Appearance: murky orange with gentle streams of carbonation. Very little head.

Smell: very subtle and understated. Very gentle maltiness?

Taste: wow. Assertive, slightly funky hop presence right across the middle of the tongue. A very backgrounded matliness. The flavour ends cleanly, leaving a lingering hop bitterness across the whole of my mouth.

Mouthfeel: slick and juicy with a lively carbonation.

Overall: I just mowed the lawn. This was the perfect beer to drink after that :)

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a beige/amber color with a 1 inch head. Smell is very mild, some malts. Taste is not mild, caramel malts, hops, bready, a bit of citrus, tasty and highly sessionable. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a good quality beer.

12 ounce bottle -> snifter

A - hazy medium amber with a foamy one inch head, good retention, and good lacing

S - very weak nose, mostly bready notes

T - starts off with a apple taste and caramel malt sweetness, and finishes with a hop bitterness. Rye is present as well. Unfortunately so is a big metallic note.

M - a little watery with carbonation that can produce some earth shaking belching.

O - this was a miss for me. I have liked every offering from Blue Pants so far, but this one was not up to par from what I have gotten used to from them.
