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.

Bottle. Medium gold, average white head. Pleasant passion fruit hop aroma and flavour on top of clean light grains, ending with a light bitter note. Almost no bitterness really. This really is a lovely hoppy lager.

Bottle. Beer is just average to me in everyway. Average gold color and head. Average taste and aroma. It’s a good lawnmower beer but that’s all.

Jensen Beach, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy medium golden pour, snow white head that fades after a while. Aroma has some pleasant grainy accents, nice generic fruity accents. Solid lager flavor, some cereal-like grainy notes, some honey sweetness, a hint of light citrus bitter hoppiness, Nice smooth, crisp mouthfeel. Nice to see these folks can brew a solid low ABV beer - used to all the Jewbelations etc

Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw body. The aroma is bright lemon and grapefruit. The taste is balanced, some rye spice, a little bitterness in the end. The texture is smooth. An easy drinker with great aroma.

On tap at 40 brews. It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of lemongrass, citrus, hops and some pale malts. The taste was similar with more pale malts and citrus with a smooth hop balance and a crisp finish. Nice.
