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.

The closet comparison I got is Millstream's Schildbrau.

This is paler, though--a dark, filtered gold with a soapy white head. Smells of rounded, lightly nutty malt with a bit of citrus hops.

Tastes like it smells, crisp and punchy. Rounded, lightly nutty biscuit malts dominate, offset nicely by lightly floral American hops, finishing cleanly with zero esters and a light, lingering kiss of the hop.

Very well brewed, but I wish they had given us a little more.
