It pours a clear golden yellow color with a thick solid off white head that clung too the glass on the way down.

The smell is sweet with bready malt, a hint of butter and some fruity hop aroma in the background.

At first, when I took a sip I noticed a hint of citrus flavor, like a madarin orange. Followed up by some light malt and a crisp lager finish.

Light bodied with lots of carbonation and a refreshing finish.

This could be a really good session beer, good taste and light so I could put a hurtin on a case of these.

Poured to a good white head with descent retention and some lacing. Aroma had hints of hay and hop, very mild. Appearance was a golden straw with a slight cloudy look. Tasted hints of grain and some grass with an earthy back. Mouthfeel was light with a crisp, clean aftertaste.

The Crystal clear pale yellow color is not particularly fetching but the foamy head was a nice topper.

What's that? Piney hops on the nose? I'm quite surprised with floral piney hop scent on a lager plus I'm catching a little grapefruit and lemon.

As goes the nose so goes the taste as a real piney hop flavor meets the palate. There is some citrusy flavor with bitter grapefruit and sour lemon that melds well with the ever present floral hop flavor.

Very full, for a lager, it's extremely satisfying.

A lager will never get huge scores on a BA ranking board but when I want a tasty and satisfying beer this is my new favorite.

Poured into a pint glass.

One of the better American style lagers out there. A complexity that is not exhibited in lagers with adjuncts. A nice beer to interject between heavy beers – a palate cleaner. It’s hard to rate these APLs high since they are not my favorite style, but this one is rated high and I will drink it again.

A – Pours a clear light straw/yellow color, well carbonated, two-finger off-white rocky head that quickly dissipates. No lacing to speak of.

S – Crackers, faint lemon, slight baked bread, maybe some green apple.

T – Mild herbal bitterness, pale maltiness, crackers.

MF – Medium light bodied, crisp (due to carbonation), dry finish.
