I just don't understand how lagers get rated so low on BA. Especially high quality ones like this. If you don't think this is a fine lager, tell me what you are marking it down on. It has the classic mowed/ready-to-bale grassiness of the finest German lagers. Delicate hops aroma, perfect malt balance, carbonation that is spot-on. Absolutely no DMS/ diacetyl discernible to me. In my opinion, this is only one very small notch under the best German lagers (Weihenstephaner, Spaten, et al) and way better than common German imports like Becks, St. Pauli Girl, Warsteiner, to name a few. Actually tastes pretty German which is unusual for American attempts at German styles. I think this is an extremely well-made brew. I could drink it every day, especially during our hot Texas summers.

The beer pours a very clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is full of grain, with some wheat and a little bit of grass thrown in. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of biscuit malt and grain notes, with a little bit of toffee. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This is a fairly straightforward, one-dimensional beer. However, there is nothing offensive going on and it is refreshing and easy to drink.

Pours a medium gold to almost red tint. Smells of the usual hop and malt like that of a red or amber ale. Nothing special but looking to be a good session beer. Flavor is hoppy with little sweetness from the malt. It shines on mouthfeel with good carbonation for a long lasting satisfaction. Overall an ok beer would buy a six pack for a bbq

Appearance:
Light blond color with a nice thin white head that’s very dense and creates an equally dense wall of lacing.
Smell:
Malts mixed with light grassy and herbal smells and a mild fruity undertone come through.
Taste:
Malts mixed in with lemon zest and even a little orange, some bitterness become present in the aftertaste
Mouthfeel:
Clean crisp and revitalizing, the carbonation really makes you want to take another sip, the alcohol content is well hidden.

12 oz bottle pours a clear, light gold color with a fizzy white head. Not much for retention and lace..very macro looking beer.

Nose is honeyed, wet grains with a pretty substantial sweetness. Smells just ok, more like what it is supposed to be than the Pedernales IPA, thats fo sho.

Taste is pleasant graininess with a mild hop cleansing on the finish. The malt is really crisp and fresh-crushed tasting. I am surprised...pretty tasty little lager here. Id compare it to a German helles maybe. Id actually go for this again, I find myself astounded to be saying.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Slightly hazy, with a very light body, similar in appearance to pear juice. The head is moderate, off-white and fairly dense and retains well. There is a modest amount of slow-rising carbonation, the lacing is scattered and patchy.

Aroma: Lots of cooked grain in the aroma, as well as grassy hops, and some slight mineral notes.

Taste: Opens with a solid, lightly toasted malt presence, with biscuit flavors being notable. There is a strong presence of grassy and slightly spicy hops. Towards the end of the taste, the hops intensify a bit, assuming an herbal bitterness, which lingers on well past the end of the taste.

Mouth feel: Soft, fairly full, with moderate zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Pleasant and drinkable, but not particularly memorable.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
