Had at Americanos. Clear orange-amber, thick fluffy white head. Smells and tastes like a relatively standard lager though taste has some more florals and dry, bitter hop. Body is medium, fluffy, has a small citrus/pepper kick. Not especially interesting or even that hoppy.

Bottle at Americanos. Slightly hazy bright orange pour with big foamy head. Aroma is very faintly hoppy (very faintly). Taste is as promised - hoppy (but not that hoppy) lager. A bit plasticky hop flavor. Not as good as other hoppy lagers like Clown Shoes' one or Sam Adams IPL. Not bad but wouldn't get again.

Pours a hazy yellow with a big foamy white head and good lacing. Nose of caramel malts and citrus. Medium in body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor begins withy citrus ands some brett, and moves to an earthy finish. Quite good.

Slightly hazy golden with a thin white cap. Clean lagery aroma with a dose of lemon and biscuit. Smooth and mellow semisweet flavor of blonde biscuitiness and a little lemon citrus tone and bright clean lager finish.

12oz bottle poured into Snifter. Golden hue, great clarity with 2 finger thick frothy white head. Good lacing. Strong citrus hop, lemon peel, light malt, floral aromas. There was some funky smell that I couldn’t quite pinpoint, medicinal aroma maybe? Bland watery taste up front but then it leads into a light citrus and floral taste. Crisp carbonation on the palate.

355ml bottle. This is David’s slingshot hoppy american lager in bottle. Just poured it and a definite brett presence in the nose. Color is an orange/gold Flavor is fruity hops, heavy brett with a medicinal character, tropical fruit underneath, mild acidity. Pretty good for a lager that seems to be unintentionally infected with brett. Call it a happy accident.

Aroma is hoppy and malty. All of the He’Brew beers I have tried so far have had a weird funky taste which is evident here as well. Decent lager otherwise but lacking in hops.

Growler. Pours a really vivid gold with a high, large-grained, white head and a lot of visible carbonation. Nose is very floral; moss rose, petunia, and some citrus. The subtlety on the nose is nice. Lovely and bright on the tongue; crisp and hoppy, but not overly so. Lime and floral notes really play up the lager elements. I just find this a really well balanced, easy drinking but not simplistic beer. A little stone fruit sweetness on the finish ties the whole thing together. Bravo.
