Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head that leaves plenty of lacing all the way down the glass. Fresh grassy hops are first noticeable in both aroma and taste. Well balanced with a crisp, light body. I dont usually drink lagers, but this was an unexpected surprise. I’ll have another now.

This lager has a light cool crisp body and excellent appearance. It pairs perfectly with steamed shrimp and leaves a smooth refreshing taste on the palate.

(Bottle 33cl) Pours yellow with a white head that collapses relatively fast yet leaves laces. Bice fruity hoppy nose for a lager. Refreshing hoppy flavour on a solid malt base

Whoa! After years of thinking that Flying Dog ales are just OK, who knew they could make a lager like this! I wonder if Atlantic Lager is a specific reference to something, because this beer is a dead on clone of Sam Adams Boston Lager, and dare I say better. Fresh hop nose must have surely been hallertauer, spicy and floral with a little pepper in the flavor. Clean dry malts, amber to gold in color.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden amber with a bit of haze, fizzy head cover, thin swirls of lace. Aroma of fresh cut grass and malt. Taste begins with malt boosted by a hint of lemongrass, cut by hop bitters and carbonation as it moves through the palate. All mixed together in a short finish. Very drinkable. Recommended.

12oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of pale malts and a good amount of hops for the style. Flavor not bad for the type of beer. Average to light texture. A decent beer.

Bottle. Slightly hazy straw coloured pour with a thick white head. Exactly as a lager should be. Nose is light, grassy and delicately hopped. Taste is also light, and delicately hopped. So easily drinkable and I can see me getting in a few of these for a nice sunny day. Very crisp. Very plain, but for what it’s trying to achieve... just right.

12 oz bottle...had this at the family Xmas get together. A truly awesome lager...very crisp and dry with a nice hop bite. This style (lager) has been destroyed by the industrial brewers to the point that I don’t even consider buying lagers anymore, however this was a very pleasant surprise. Outstanding!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I picked up some cans direct from the brewery last night.
The beer is transparent and appears a golden orange color, like a sunset. The head is a half inch thick, and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.
The aroma offers grass, hops, floral notes, lager malt. Smells nice.
The beer is light in body with plenty of flavor. Not thin, but definitely sessionable. Floral hops come through nicely. A nice balance of lager malt, light citrus, and hop character.
Sitting on my deck in the woods and reviewing beers...somebody pinch me.
