I finally got to try this local lager and it was exactly what I thought it would be - a lager. Iím in no rush for another, but my dad loved his. Iím a big fan of Craftsmanís other beers, this one just isnít getting me excited.

laiti (7640) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Draught @ Underbelly, San Diego. Aroma is sweet with buttery malt and fruity hops. Flavour has grassy hops, fruits, some herbal bitterness and mild fruits. Rather fruity for a pale lager.

Draught @ Underbelly, San Diego, CA Pours yellowish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of grass, citrus, hay, malts and lemon. Taste is smooth, slightly grainy and citrusy with some lemon and hay. Finish is smooth, sweetish and earthy with some corn, lemon and hay. A bit untypical.

Draft. Used to like this one before I got very into beer and havenít had it in ages, turns out itís still very good! Pours light gold. Sweet malt aroma with some bubblegum and cereal. Taste is on the sweet side too but nicely complex with some drying hop bitterness. Solid.

From a flight at Tratoria Neapolis in Pasadena CA. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Light malty nose. Flavors of biscuit, butterscotch and bubblegum. One of the most complex pale lagers I have had.

On tap at Trappist Provisions. Believe it or not, Iíve been tracking this one down for a while now. I can see why itís rated so highly as a pale lager. It kind of changes your mind on what this style can actually be. It pours a clear golden color with a nice white head. The aroma is rather spicy and floral with a light maltiness that has some corn and apple, but not over the top. The flavor is full bodied with prominent spicy and floral hops, more corn and light malts. Very creamy mouthfeel. Excellent stuff.

On tap at Public School 612 in downtown LA Dec. 11th. Pours golden with moderate head. Good lacing throughout. Quality senses from nose to finish. Very easy to drink, and flavorful. Nice beer!
