Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Deep golden in color, this low ABV lager balances Pilsner and Munich malt with an aromatic American hop aroma. This beer starts hoppy but finishes unexpectedly malty with very low bitterness. Impressively flavorful and drinkable for the lightest beer we brew. We dub this beer a "Session Lager," as we once again brew a lager in a beer style of its own. Uses local Soft Red Winter Wheat from Four Star Farms.

Served in a pitcher at State Park in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

A- Hazy pilsner-golden body, one finger white head with good retention, no lacing.

S- Pilsner malt, a touch of citrus hops, noble hops. Sweet bread. Not particularly strong.

F- Pilsner malt, noble hops. Not very bitter, not very complicated.

M- About the right amount of body; solidly medium and very drinkable. Sweet and dry pilsner malt finishes things off.

O- Super easy to drink, fairly flavourful for a pale malt. No off-flavours, enjoyable.

On Tap. Pours deep golden with white head. Aroma is of bready malt and citrusy hops. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy, piney hops and bready malt fill the mouth. Finish is long and bitter. Nice, easy drinking lager.
