On draught at the brewery. A hazy, straw yellow-gold pour with a thin, ecru-colored head and a thin sheen of lacing. Its nose features lemon, grass, onion, cracker, and a hint of sweet citrus. The taste follows the smell and there are pleasing pepper and spice notes. The feel is lite and crisp with moderate carbonation, and the 7.3% ABV gives a nice pop for a lager. Overall, this is a big lager and a fine one! While it's not exactly poundable given the ABV, the flavors more than compensate.

Happy to add this DOUBLE LAGER at my favorite local brewer in my home town: Carton Smash the Golds in collaboration with Barrier (Long Island) - 2 great innovators of craft.
a) clear lager golden body sports a white firm head that lasts and laces.
s) Aroma is intensely leafy and fresh, Fruity yet light, tropical fruits, onion, grass, lemon, pineapple.
t) All the above is the right answer, but the sum is greater than the parts, waves of fruit and light grassy flavor waves. Golden waves.
f) Yeasty, lighter, brighter than ale. This is clean, light, well-matched to food.
o) One of the best double lagers ever.
