Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 5.2% abv

Appearance- Pours a bright yellow orange with a tall white foamy head. Crystal clear.

Smell- Grainy, soapy, some citrus.

Taste- Fresh grain, some caramel, with a sweet bready flavor. Some peppery citrus hop flavors ignite the palate, but is balanced off by that light malt base. Finishes slightly bitter and dry and slightly metallic as well.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with active carbonation.

Overall- A basic, good example of a craft version of an American lager. Nothing over the top, but is a clean and simple lager. Good use of malt and hop flavor is there.

P- Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a Cigar City pint glass.Best by March 2017.Only a couple days over date.

L- Thin soapy white head with medium retention,and low lacing.Light amber / gold colored body with good clarity.Light amount of carbonation.

S- On the nose I get sweet caramel malt,and floral / citrus hop notes.

T- The palate follows the nose with sweet bready malt up front,and citrus hops on the back end.A little bit of spice on the back end as well,along with a metallic taste.

F- The mouth feel is thin and a little watery.Decent amount of oxidation on the tongue.Smooth finish with a sticky texture.

O- This is a pretty good lager.Wouldn't be my first choice,but wouldn't be my last either.I probably wouldn't buy it again,but if you like lagers I would recommend giving it a try.
