A hop forward lager with complex, citrusy aromas derived from German hops and wheat phenols. We use our house German lager strain to provide a fresh backdrop for this perfect session lager. Mildly traditional...Wildly drinkable. Malts: German Pilsen, German Wheat Hops: Tettnanger, Perle Yeast: House Lager ABV: 5.2% Availability: Year-Round

canned at Superior, cold golden pour with white foam, off putting cerealy metallic aroma and flavor, hard to finish, maybe a bad batch?

My Bottom Line:
This seamless, dry quencher is the setting for hay-like cereals and herbal hops, the latter’s character latching on the tastebuds with every succulent sip.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the misty pale golden.
-This resembles a Pilsener with citrusy suggestions.
-Just like a well-made session lager, this brew’s flavor dosage is built so that you never get tired of the flavor profile and actually feel like getting another one once your last sip from the pint is taken. Great job on that front as well!
-The aroma could be more indicative of what the flavor profile will offer in terms of hoppiness.
-This is as professional as their other brews. High quality stuff all around.

Pale malts and citrus in aroma. The flavor is pilsner/citrus and a lightly bitter finish

Appearance: this beer pours with a very large white head that takes a while to pour down, the beer is a slightly hazy pale gold color, head is very dense Aroma: pale malt, perhaps some sweet corn Taste: very pale grain, has a small bitterness to it, faint corn sweetness Palate: very light mouthfeel, average carbonation, minimal bitter aftertaste Overall: I do pick up some corn in this beer but the relatively bitter finish for this style is nice, easily sessionable like the label says ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden with a thin head and a malty nose. Well-carbonated with a medium mouthfeel followed by a lemony, bready, mildly hoppy finish.

Great Raft Southern Drawl has a thick, froathy, white head, and a hazy, somewhat bubbly, straw appearance, with heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweetness (white or cream cheese cake icing), white bread, and grass. Taste is of those elements with barley malt and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and quite slick. Great Raft Southern Drawl finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT
