Take aim at Shmaltz’s newest year-round offering, an American Craft Lager thoughtfully created to stand up to the big beer Goliaths of the world. Boasting a bright, citrusy hop aroma, supported by touches of wheat and rye, Slingshot is guaranteed to strike the craft beer bullseye every time.

Slingshot pours a bright straw color with a thin white head and light lacing. The aroma features juicy, tropical fruit notes of peach, lemon and red grapefruit with the light spice accent of noble hops. The polished malt bill is mainly 2-row pale malt with portions of Vienna and a touch of wheat and rye to add a delicate balance to the spice and fruit. It is medium in body with a smooth refreshing mouthfeel to make Slingshot a well-balanced, easy drinking American craft lager.

Atom (2070) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2016
12oz bottle pours a aroma of caramel malt, light grain and yeast, with mild lemon citrus. Taste is sweet and fruity, caramel, very light bitterness and yeast on finish. Too much going on really, flavors never come together, like they had a hard deciding if they wanted to make a pale ale or lager.

Shippy (43) - - JAN 24, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a bright, clear yellow-gold with a white head of small bubbles. Aromas of peach, spice, wheat, and a hint of bubblegum. Taste starts with refreshing tropical notes with some wheat, followed by a bit of pepper and a slight, lingering bitterness. Feel is medium, with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty solid lager - good nose, decent flavors, light and drinkable.
