This smooth lager strikes a delicate balance between malt and hops in the aroma, palate, finish and body. It has more body and less hops than a Pilsner, and less malt and more hops than a Munich style lager. 30 IBU.

On tap, pours golden orange color, creamy frothy white head. Aroma is wheat, orange, citrus notes, malt, little bit of hops. Flavor is malty caramel, sweet, honey, agave, wheat, lemon, slight orange, slight toffee, very light hop finish. Decent.

Appearance- nice big frothy bone white head. Lasted a good bit. Very little/light lacing. Lots of bubbles. Clear honey gold hue. Ultra pleasing to the eye. Smell- clean, malty, hoppy. All the pleasant aromas I expect and enjoy when visiting a brewery. Taste- lots of malts up front, followed by nice hop bitterness. Mouthfeel- crisp, medium to full body. Overall- an excellent lager. Very well balanced. Loads of character all around. Would definitely have again and recommend. Cheers!

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is a fruity hop and biscuit. Thin mouth with toasty malt, light fruit, grass, light dry finish. Good.

Bottle, thanks Colin. Clear medium yellow, foamy white head. Bready malt and grassy hops in pleasing aroma. Big flavour - tons of bready malt, aggressively hopped (more than I thought anyway) - grassy, just a hint of fruit. Clean and dry finish. A very tasty example of the style.

Golden pour, sweetly-sharp malty aroma. Perfect balance of warm, creamy malt, delicate hop, and tasteful spark of spice. A true go-to beer, especially for us in the area. Extraordinalrily drinkable beer.

16 Oz tap. Golden with a white head. Aromas of citrus and some nut. Flavor is mild sweet with a funky orange flavor and nutty malt. Finishes with some herby hops. Overall, a bit strange for the style. Some off-putting flavors, but drinkable.

12 oz bottle, poured into a shaker pint at approximately 45 degrees F. A: Pours a crystal clear pale orange, leaning towards gold but definitely more on the orange side of that line, with a fair amount of bubbles visible. The head is fairly thing, and rather short-lived before dying to a ring of white and eventually, nothing at all. S: Bread, is the main takeaway from the aroma. Whole grain bread, with extra whole grains and some cracked grains along for the ride. There’s some very faint toffee essence in there, and a little dry mustiness, like a long-sealed library being cracked open for the first time in decades. T: The scent did not lie - whole grain bread flavor is present, and in spades. This has significant bread and grain malt character, for most of the tasting process. There’s a leathery soil note, however, that cuts through any possible sweetness, and is especially strong on the finish, leaving a bitter, clay-earth aftertaste. There are some other, very faint notes present, grassy and fruity, but the bitter soil conceals them enough that I am unable to pick them out. M: Light and slick in the mouth, and rather sharply carbonated. O: Not my favorite lager, to be honest, but this is also not my favorite lager style. The earthen noble hops are present enough to obscure some of the other flavors for me, and the malt tones are less biscuit, more bread and grain, to me. I usually avoid this one, and the occasional revisit reinforces to me why I do.

Good lager. Very smooth and is well balanced. Complex body and nice aroma and palate.

Bottle; smooth and crisp, clean finish. Just really good simple beer. not usually a big fan of lagers, but this one is done right.
