Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Trader Joe’s in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $8.49 for a variety 6-pack
Purchased: June 26, 2015
Consumed: June 26, 2015
Misc.: Grading this on a curve, since it was still a tad warm
Poured a golden, pale, clear color with 7-to-8 fingers of khaki white, fluffy head. That settled down to a nice top, but the head was crazy. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention on the top. (Sight - 3.50)
Smelled cereal, wheat, honey, corn, grass, caramel and bread. Like a lager should. (Smell - 3.88)
Tasted similar to the nose, reminding me more or a good American Adjunct Lager than an American Pale Lager. Got honey, corn cereal (Kix, Corn Puffs, etc.), grass, sourdough bread, honey wheat and caramel. (Taste - 3.75)
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, crisp finish. (Feel - 3.88)
For the style, this was a good beer. I enjoyed it. (Overall - 3.88)

22oz bottle 6/29/15 (Jewel-Clearance rack)-36° in Lager Glass-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of hops, malt, biscuit, and grains. Taste of the same with some bitterness and citrus. This light bodied brew is not bad but it does nothing for me.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Has a huge, thick head that slowly settles and some lace with a clear amber color. Aroma is fresh pale lager beer. Flavor is a nice, balanced bittersweet with just right tang. Body is excellent. Extremely drinkable brew. I really like this!

Un houblons terreux et parfumé se met de l’avant dans une lager charpentée et chargée d’esters fruités. Un aspect générique y est installé cependant, la rendant moins appréciable.
