3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours clear gold with weak white head. The aroma is sweet and modestly fruit flavored cotton candy like and a touch floral hops. The taste begins with a nice bite of hop bitterness. I get bitter floral hops mixing with some lemon and lime peel. To midway it leads into some sugary malts and a sense of lagery esters. The hops here are not really my favorite but persist pleasingly into the finish.

A nice refreshing lager with a bit of hop induced zip to it! Not too shabby.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle. Absolutely clear golden colour with small to average, frothy, collapsing, white head. Minimally grassy hop aroma. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty with a minimal tart touch, minimally grainy; bitter hoppy finish. Clear, clean and pure but boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can poured into a pilsner glass. Drank this side by side with Prima Pils.
A: Pours a light golden straw color with a bit of yeast haze muddling the clarity slightly. The head is kind of ugly, a two finger off white color with huge bubbles and poor retention. There’s a little bit of lacing left on the glass.
S: Quite fruity for a lager, with notes of pineapple and grapefruit aside the malts. It’s kind of subdued and hard to identify, but it’s not terrible by any stretch.
T: Compared to how hop driven the Prima Pils I had before this, this one is pleasantly malty. The malts are very biscuity in flavor - it almost drinks like liquid biscuit at times - with some well incorporated diacetyl, and a crisp, grassy finish. Rather simple (as expected), but it’s quite pleasant with decent flavor.
M: Slightly heavy, which renders it a little less drinkable than it could be. Heavy carbonation with a slight lingering biscuit aftertaste.
O: Flying Dog has done a good job of stepping their game up lately, and this is a very solid (if not quite exceptional) lager that’s a big improvement over Tire Bite (which this replaces). Not my favorite by any means, but I’ll gladly chug this one down while picking crabs.

Bottle at Lockview. Pours a straw yellow color with a thin white head with vivid carbonation. Aroma of melon, lemon, smells like a jolly rancher. Tastes of that yummy lager yeast with the slight fruitiness of its ale counterpart. I like this IPL style beer. Refreshing and easy I drink. Will visit this again.
