On tap at Caponeís. Perhaps the best lager I have ever had. Light golden yellow color with that grassy aroma. Perfect hop hit. Just really tasty.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours clear light yellow with a pure white head on top. The aroma is light, almost nothing unfortunately but some light sweet notes. The body is smooth, not crisp as expected but full and pleasant. The flavors are light sweet notes with some hop presence not expected that make it delicious.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear golden with a lasting white head. Excellent lacing on the glass as it went down. Aroma was mostly hops. Crisp citrus fruits, floral, light malts. Medium, easy drinking body. Flavor was full of those crisp hops. Citrus and floral and nice crisp grass. The malts were about as clean as the best pilsener Iíve had, which aided the hop bitterness. This one surprised and blew me away. I really got to enjoy the hops without having to wade through a bunch of caramel like in many IPAs (Not that Iím complaining, I enjoy IPAs). I would build a bar around this beer. (Draft at Khyber Pass Pub, Philly)

Sampled at ABR in small glass. Pours a clear gold. A very nice beer, although not quite as flavorful as I would like. But, as a lager it is very nice.

750mL Bottle. Thanks for sharing Sean! Clean, electric limey citrus aroma, strong and fresh. Combines with lagery crispness. Funny, the flavor hops arenít as pronounced as the aroma hops. Not a ton of bitterness. Hop flavors and aromas a pleasingly citrus. Maybe not worth the big bones, but good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL c&c #96 of 313 courtesy of rayl101. The pour is a brilliant cleat gold to lighter yellow with a larger, healthy white head. Rings of sticky lace. Nose is fresh pineapple, jackfruit, cantaloupe, ultra fresh biscuit and small butter, baked cherry, moderate alcohol presence. Really fresh and beautiful. Taste is really outstanding. A big interplay of fresh biscuit and mild butter with a massively crisp and quenching pilsener character. Very bitter, dry, doughy, grassy with sweet pineapple. Amazing malt profile. So clean even with some heavier butter biscuit in the mouthfeel. Hoppy, a bit boozy, grassy and sharp. So good. Ultra quenching palate. Better than most IPAs and richer than most Abbey Tripels. Pure hilarity. Kudos for making a pale lager that makes most craft beers run, hide, and cower.
