Craftsman lager is a fantastic beer with a crisp taste and a fantastic finish. If you enjoy this beer, try out the craftsman poppy fields. Another great beer

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, I’ve been tracking this one down for a while now. I can see why it’s 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!

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Tap at Lucky Baldwins. Clear golden. Excellent white webby lacing. Nose is moderate lemon and sweet orange. Taste is hoppy, some sugar, decent creamed corn DMS intentional character giving some body density balanced by hefty grassy hops verging on Czech or German minerality. Very good for what it is, successful.

Draft @ Neighborhood, San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. Has a fruity malty grainy aroma with hints of corn. Fruity malty grainy flavor with weak grassy hoppy hints. Has a fruity malty grainy corn finish.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Pint at some Studio City, CA restaurant. Poured a pretty clear yellow color, foamy white head. Aroma was light malts, adjuncts, crisp hops. Flavor was light malts, crisp hops. Drinkable in a pinch, I’d rather reach for something else. Maybe when it’s 100 degrees in LA, I’d grab this one over one of the more fizzy yellow brews.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2013
On tap at Father’s Office, Santa Monica. Compared favorably with the Stillwater pre-Pro lager. Vibrant golden-orange pour with a lively, fluffy head and plenty of brimming carbonation. Nose was very inviting with plenty of bitter hops, a touch of must and tart fruit. Bracing flavors, quite sharp and grassy, just a bit of funk peeking out from the herbal deliciousness.
