20100707 500ml bottle from State Line. Straw colored with fine white head that mostly fades. Aroma is very pleasant, very mild, with a slight grassy hop, hay, and slight cream of wheat. Body is rather thin and incredibly dry, however mostly without bitterness until very late on the palate when a sharp herbal bite swoops in out of left field with a refreshing tingle. Kind of reminds me of mineral water where you get a mouthful and are thinking, meh, just water, but then the whole of the thing just erupts in one tiny moment of sensory joy. Palate and profile are very similar. Flavor doesnít add much, if anything. Itís actually remarkably bland, but thereís not a thing about it I find off-putting or foul. In fact, I have really enjoyed drinking this one. Nicely done beer, but not nine bucks nice.

Pale lager that pours a pale yellow colour, with a white head that lasts. Not as good as Epicís other beers, but a good place to start

Thin looking pale yellow with a lasting white head. Floral passionfruit & sweet malty aromas. Thin meduim body with good carbonation. Dry hop finish. Pretty good pale lager.

500ml bottle. Pale gold hue, large fluffy white head, very good lacing, looked good in a pilsner glass. The aromas from this bottle were a rather strange mix of; bread dough, pages in an old paperback book, band-aid, light citrus especially lime, hay, a touch of banana, even slight wheatiness - weird although still appealing. Sweet with gentle bitterness. Tingly carbonation, dry finish. This got better as I drunk it but by by the end of the bottle I had got bored of it. Overall fairly good but perhaps I was expecting too much given its 100th percentile for its style rating, the price tag, and the other amazing Epic beers I have had. I guess there is a (low) limit to how good a pale lager can be.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2010
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt as well as lighter notes of hops and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw, leading to a lighlty bitter finish.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2010
500ml Bottle thanks to West Lakeview Liquors! Pours a very clear light golden with some bubbles and a smaller thinner fizzy head 2.5. Fairly aggressive for style, strongly metallic but with equal character of bread and noble hops, long metallic aftertaste, the finish is pretty nice, refreshing and full of flavor, medium bitterness. Medium/light bodied, easy drinking but definitely not just a pale lager, spread out sharp fizzy carbonation. Just a faint tad skunky/light stuck but other than that fairly clean. Pretty solid!

buzz_and_hum (153) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 6, 2010
An odd one, this one. Likely brewed as a lager to introduce New Zealandís infamously unadventurous beer drinking public to something with a bit more character. But its also from Epic; who love their hops. So you end up with a light lager mouthfeel and sweetness but a rough hop edge. The flavours donít quite meld unfortunately.

bluevegie (3065) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2009
Pale yellow body with a mainly lasting head. Some passionfruit on the aroma along with some floury notes. Noticeable hop taste but dont dominate, low to medium body, light carbonation, light bitterness. I was probably expecting a little more from this Epic beer.

Davros (2197) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2009
Golden pour with a small, short-lived head. Aromas show a fair bit of NZ hops, with passionfruit, clean sweet malt, some spicy hops. Light, but pleasant. Flavours show some grassy and passionfruit-like hops, slightly grainy and bready malt, and a dry bitter finish. Light body, but the carbonation is on the high side.
