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.

(bottle - 12 oz) Lightly hazy gold pour with a puffy white head. Slightly strong hop aroma to it which I wasn’t expecting as it’s labeled a lager. Flavor has a good amount of hops at the start but they fade quickly to a smooth and well-balanced malt middle with a light and crisp finish. [1/9/16]

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Awesome, hoppy , premium lager! Pale , golden color with nice , white head. Aroma of malt , herbs and citrus hops. Good , hoppy bite in taste , balanced by malty sweetness. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Probably, still not enough hops for hopheads, but more than enough for premium lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I never really fully enjoyed lagers...until I discovered hoppy lagers. Especially from the quality brewers who know how to do them right, you know when you come across the good ones. This is clean, refreshing, doesn’t have that sour yeasty aftertaste. Flavors of light grain, mild citrus from the hops, and a little malt in there. Almost like a pale ale. Appearance is semi-clear pale yellow with a light gold tint. Received in the He’Brew Hop-IPA Mixpack, but would like to find a 6 or 12 of this next spring/summer when the weather gets hot again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose rindy, citrus (gf and lemon), pours dull and murky-ugly golden with a short but dense beige head with a little lace (and it’s even a bit leggy!). Taste lightly sweet and medially bitter, really pushing the fruit juice and rind-pith bitterness, but it’s very fresh and natural. Peach, white grape, tangerine. Lager crispness from a drying full body, hint of soapy texture, malt hints at complexity but overall muddles. Touch of spice, hops used with restraint and discretion, achieves a fine and very commendable balance. Don’t think I’ll be coming back to this one - just not my bag - but the recipe is well-conceived and the brewing executed masterfully (kudos!). [2015.12.05: 3.4]

On tap at MacGregor’s with the Thanksgiving gang. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head with good lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Better than a Macro lager.
