Hazy with a citrus nose that makes me think more Belgian Wit than Lager, but it works very well. Feels a bit thin but smooth with a high carbonation to pair.

Had a 5oz pour at the brewery on 6/25 into a snifter glass. Jan comes out a slightly hazy yellow color with a fluffy white head.

Sort of a witbier aroma here, some orange citrus notes, sweetness, bit of spice and malt. Flavor is just like the aroma, cracker like malts, middle sweetness with a prominent citrus and floral note. Finishes pretty clean and with a lingering grapefruit like sweetness.

Overall I enjoyed this beer. It definitely tricks you into thinking it's not a lager. I quaffed this one heartily in the summer heat.

Appearance: Arrives with a golden color and a frothy head that fades quickly; not much lacing action

Smell: Orange and citrusy, with bready, herbal tones

Taste: Wheat bread flavor, up front, with both the grain and slightly tart tones; orange and other citrus flavors with a subtle herbal character; bready flavors return in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Decent but not particularly memorable, particularly when contrasted with the brewery's other beers

Served in a flite glass at the brewery ~39F.

I know this uses a lager yeast but somehow Singlecut managed to make it taste no so lagery. I don't get any of those yeasty or malty ketones that are usually present in a helles or adjunct lager.

It really tasted like a glass of fresh squeezed tangerine juice to me, and it even had a similar texture and color.

A little bit cloudy, light orange copper. Fruit juicey nose with a light but present body and texture.

Almost zero alcohol taste at all.

I would definitely purchase again and certainly in a growler.

Singlecut just keeps getting better and better in the flavor department, and their distribution footprint is also getting wider in terms of draft kegs.

Flavor was ok, but it felt quite watery. After reading some other descriptions it sounds like there might be some consistancy issues. I'll stick with Singlecut IPA's.
