can from az wine 4/2/12
clear golden yellow with a clingy white head.
aromas of pale malt, metal, straw, sweaty lager notes...something candy-like but not fruity which i can’t place??
flavor is the same along with some cooked canned peachiness.
crisp, clean, highly quaffable...not much different than the big boy macros. actually, quite yummy when left in the freezer to get a bit slushy. 6/3/6/3/13

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden pour with a medium thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Grainy malt and faint hops in the nose. Light body with flavors of cereal malt, mild hops and a bit of corn. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Nothing memorable overall.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Body:Light, grain, not much hoop flavors, some skunkyness
Finnish:Dry and short
Over-all/Mouth-feel:No fizzy carbonation like in many macro breweries, light mouth-feel. The label is misleading by indicating some hop flavors beer but the is not the case.

Bottle, pours a bright yellow, aroma is quite hoppy and the flavour is indeed very crisp. The hops in the beer a light but noticable and the finish is lightly bittered, good offering

Pale blonde with vigorous carbonation feeding thin, airy bleached head.Crisp hopped nose, hints of grass and cardboard.Clean, but weak body. Not much in the way of flavor. Bitter grassiness and watered down grains.

Pint at the brewery pub. Apres ski happy hour pitchers are only $5. Double hopped lager. Not double an amount of hops but hops added twice. Drinkable in a pitcher and TV sports kind of way. Grainy with some noticeable hops. Better than macros and maybe a gateway beer for skiers to move to the more interesting tap handles.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
NV Whole Foods bottle. Stupid pale lager. I fell victim to not reading the label details...I was hoping for something different. Oh well, another MT beer. Although the label says "double hopped", not sure I tasted exactly twice the hops. =] It honestly was better than your typical macro, pale lager.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Color was pale golden, very similar to urine when you are dehydrated. Maybe ¾ inches of head that dissipated very quickly. Minimal lacing. Minimal film.
Smelled pleasantly good. Reminded me of a pilsner I had recently, light grass/grain. Also some caramel in there and maybe even some citrus notes.
Lightly roasted malts up front on the taste. Very smooth aftertaste. Kind of bland overall.
Light body. Kind of a sticky texture. Soft-to-flat carbonation. Abrupt finish.
An OK beer overall. It was actually better than I thought. I’d probably try it again.

I find it amusing how reading through some of the ratings people had high expectations for this pale lager solely for the reason its being brewed by a micro brewer, only to be let down by the fact its still a pale lager. If anything, I was biased the other way. In fact I distinctly remember when my coworker brought this back from Whitefish thinking ‘Oh, cool a friggin pale lager. Of all the other things he could have picked, why oh why did he pick the pale lager?’ Nevertheless I had six chances to come up with something to type up. With a deep golden color that is bright and clear, a fluffy white head sits atop for only a minute or two. Aroma is more or less light floral hops and some lager malt, no real surprises here. Taste is clean and crisp, hops and lager malt. No grain or grassiness, no metallic twang. Not what I’d order on a regular basis, but if you’re comparing to style the 90th percentile is just.
