Nice blonde color with a 20% haze. Rocky head of 3 fingers, with plenty of lace wisps behind.

Lots of sharp piney hop aroma with some hay and grain. Slight antiseptic.

Flavor is pretty hoppy with some slight grain bitterness. Lots of good grain flavor, slight orange pith. However, the hoppiness makes it a little uncomfortable. A smooth lager this is not.

Bready feel, with some crispness and a light dryness on the finish.

Overall, a rather terrible flavor profile, especially for a basic lager. Just too hoppy, not smooth, not good. Drain pour.

A - pours a golden yellow with carbonation flowing up to the top of the glass. There are about two inches of foam with relentless retention

S- sweet without much depth

T- very unique taste. Slightly hoppy but almost dark

M- a bit malty

O - I'm disappointed, didn't enjoy this one.

On tap in a pint glass at Bodega on 10/21/11

Cloudy tangerine and straw hue. Poured a thin wispy head. Some lace that doesn't hold.

Thin aroma - toasted grain and faint buttered biscuit. grassy hops and watery orange peel. More full of flavor. Modest hop kick turns to grains aplenty and grass. Toast with a hint of butter. Some lingering bitterness with a prickly feel on the finish. Lemongrass. Medium-light body for the style. Appropriately lively carbonation.

Easy enough to drink. Enjoyable but not amazing. Too bitter a finish.
