Home Rule, a style-defying India Pale Lager, is as delicious as it is unique. A pilsner malt base and Atlas’ house lager yeast provide a clean and crisp backdrop for late and dry hop additions of New Zealand Waimea hops. Balanced bitterness and playful hop aromas of citrus fruit will have you reaching for sip after sip.

Great citrus aroma and taste that complements the classic lager body. Perfect amount of carbonation helps deliver a really clean finish. Very easy drinking.

nimbleprop (6865) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2014
/16oz pint at Iron Horse DC. Pours a clear yellow, almost a neon yellow, with some sudsy white head. Nose is fine, some yeast and malt, lemon, lime, a little cardboard. Flavor falls off the cliff though. Maybe I had a bad tap line? Either way, I didn’t like it much. Flavor had creamed corn, a little trashy, some lemon, yeast. Trashy, stale finish.

radagast83 (6653) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Consumed at the source. Poured a very light, though vibrant, almost light neon yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is some light crisp grains, touch of light hops. Flavor is almost creamy malts with nice citrus notes from the hops. A lot more refreshing than the abv conveys. This should be refreshing when the summer comes along.

solidfunk (6741) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Everybody seems to be making these around here and none of then are very exciting. Like IPAs for macro beer drinkers. Pours cloudy blonde with OK head and lacing. Some hops and booze in aroma. Light bitter finish. Taster at brewery.
