Tap at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy yellow. White head with average retention. Aroma is grain, light grass, faint citrus, toast. Taste is grain, faint citrus, light toasted caramel, light hoppy bitterness. Very nice flavors from something in the pale lager style.

SG111 (1013) - New York, USA - MAR 26, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2016 Tap at Austin Ale House, Austin. Pours light clear yellow, white head. Aroma is lemon, berry,bm strawberry, no doubt the best pale lager aroma I?ve smelled. Flavor is a little more disappointing. It?s got some nice citrus, a nice body, but IS ultimately still a pale lager. Still excellent for the style.

DesertDevil (684) - Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2016
12-oz. can. Moderate carbonation lifts the scents of fresh grapefruit, lemon, and tangerine from the tulip glass; faint cracker-like malt and a surprising (and late-blooming) touch of jasmine whisper underneath the fruity hop tones. The beer pours a light lemon color with a brief head. Unfortunately, the taste isn’t nearly as interesting as the aroma, as a rather subdued lemon flavor blends with bland lavosh and some grassy hop bitterness at the end. Light body. I suspect the age of this can (9/15/15) has robbed what I remember to be an enjoyable lager of its better attributes.

Tangerine right up front on the nose when you open a can. That dissipates pretty quickly though. Thin, lightly carbonated. Good beer for drinking a lot of.

On tap at the brewery. Nothing like an expertly crafted lager. Beautiful to look at, full of flavor, very satisfying. I could drink this for a while ( that says a lot.

tomer (2733) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 1, 2015
Can, small bubbly head, slightly pale and a bit hazy orange color, herbal hoppy aroma with some citrus, hint of light bready maltiness, quite subtle, herbal hops flavor, empathic bitterness, mild maltiness behind it. lingering bitter aftertaste. Excellent hoppy lager, textbook stuff.

Leighton (17473) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Can in the limo van on the way to JFK. Big thanks to the Sandman. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a foamy white head. The nose has some biscuits, hay, grain, faint citrus, bread crust. Great flavor, super well balanced, with some further bread and biscuits, sourdough, cereal, slight lemon rind, light bitter straw. Light in body with average carbonation. Nicely balanced finish with a touch of tangerine meringue, cereal, more biscuits. Delicious beer. So quaffable.

PorterPounder (6986) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Austin, Tx - on tap at the Lamar St., Whole Foods. Neutral aroma. Light snow-white head. Grainy aroma. Light green apples, slight nuttiness in the flavor. Crisp mouthfeel. Uneventful.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Floral, spicy hops, some pine, some grass, earthy minerals, pepper, and malted grain in the nose. The mouthfeel is a bit lifeless, with a runny body and only adequate carbonation. The taste is hoppy bitter, with a dry, grainy finish. Leans green and dank for a lager.
