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.

Nose is light hops and soft malt. Tastes of tropical hops, only lightly bitter, some golden malt, grains, and yeast. Fine palate tasty lager.

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]

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.

Jabah (283) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2015
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.

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]

Ron (3270) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2015
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.
