COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wonderful hoppy lager is a new addition to our ever-expanding Exponential (Seasonal) Series. The Crystal hops give it a clean spice while the Calypso hops give it a pleasant, almost fruity aroma. Easy to drink, perfect for a summer day out.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2013
Lunchtime beer. Ran 5 miles then biked about 4, so needed some hydration. Pours slightly hazy light yellow. White head and nice lacing. Nose is bright, grassy hops. Flavor adds some bitter and almost shaply floral notes. Solid.

Premium lagers aren’t good to begin with..Epic has done a good job trying to elevate it. Nice hoppy aromas and flavors. What a lager should be

Clear golden yellow, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is grass, pale malt, lighter fruit. Lighter bodied, quite drinkable.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Sample at the tap room in Denver. Pours a clear pale golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, fruit and biscuit malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2014
22 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a 2010 Guinness World Cup glass. Bright gold and pretty clear appearance with a fluffy, lasting, bright white head and active carbonation. Aroma of toasted grains, herbs, spicy hops, grass and dried fruits. Similar flavor, crisp with moderate bitterness and a dry, lingering finish. Light bodied, amply carbonated, clean and easy to drink. Pretty solid lager.

drjay44 (2567) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2014
12 oz. can. Pours a medium, we’ll retained white head, with moderate lacing, over a clear yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is light cereal, Pils malts, light herbal hops, hints of light colored fruits (pear, apple), balance to the hops......taste is light malts, dry throughout, leading to a crisp, lightly spicy, lingering noble hop bitter finish.......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, astringency, crisp clean light acid finish. This is almost Pilsner in the hops. It is very clean, crisp, cleansing and refreshing. It is really a bit too big to be a Premium Lager. BJCP 7/3/14/5/7

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2014
12oz can. Filtered pale yellow body. Soapy thin white head. Pretty respectable boho-pils, not sure why this is under premium lager, a contender for lamest beer category on RB, when it says Pils Lager on the label. Moving on...Sessionable, easy light to medium body. Grassy, straw hops tones lead to a true to style malt finish. Has some of that seltzer feel of lesser session IPAs, makes you kind wish they had just stuck with a massive noble hop bill. OK, certainly better than 90% of US Pils.

solidfunk (3604) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Pours golden with ok head and lacing. Finishes with some light bitterness. Light hops and light citrus. A lager with light hops and not much going on here. On tap at DC Summerfest.

Draft - Grassy, citrus, skunky hops. Pale gold with a decent white head. Up front bitterness with a pale malt sweetness. Euro style lager.
