COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draught @ Albion, Slightly cloudy golden yellow with small frothy off-white head, very faint malt aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter ,malt taste. thin body, abrupt finish. Not bad for a generic lager.

polo_marco (297) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Rich scent of Smokey wood bitter malts and a bit of lemon zest. Slight haze golden color with extremely small white head. Taste rich of bitter sweet malts and a bit woody smooth dry finish. Medium body with sweet crisp carbonation. Nice lager for east coast just a tad bit bitter for a really great lager but very crushable beer. Keep up the good work.

Atom (2110) - 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.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy orange with no real head. Immediate aroma of DMS and cereal. Pretty offensive unfortunately. This is bad.

shigadeyo (3630) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Doughy aroma, muted citrus; cloudy golden-pale orange color, thin white crown; bready and malt, sweet biscuit, fruity (peach, zesty lemon), crisp peppery hop bite in the finish; medium-light body, slick texture and mouthfeel; solid lager that was quite enjoyable.
