3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer sits in my glass with a little bit of a haze in a bright, yellow/orange colored body with steady, moderate carbonation and a fizzy, bright white head. It definitely looks pale. The nose is a great bouquet of bready malts, fresh grain sweetness, and a mysterious herbal, almost candy-like plant-like hop character. Caraway seeds? Coriander? My own hallucinations?
In the mouth, well, my first impression is how soft and smooth it is, especially on the lips. Man, what a great mouth feel. Some great, spicy, earthy hop bitterness is showcased here, softly decorated with a light residual sweetness. Hops and a touch of lemon/lemon verbena, perhaps, in the finish. This is extremely good, especially for a lager. This could very well be the best pale lager Iíve ever had. Smooth, hoppy, stifly-flavored, yet still refreshing and super sessionable. Great choice of hops here. What an experience. Donít let the style dissuade you... this is fantastic, more like a bready, generously hopped pilsener than what youíd expect of a lager. No nasty, sulfury lager characteristics. Itís clean and gorgeous.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a perfect gold-amber with a very slight chill haze. Head is creamy white with large bubbles and lacy foam. The nose is floral, resinous, and citrus, a very pleasant balance. A touch of stone fruit sweetness on the front of the mouth opens up into balanced bitterness and malty sweetness. Finishes long and slightly acidic, with a very clean fruity bite. Damn, thatís good.

Pours an amber golden color. Odd, no real detectable aroma... what i can barely detect is hard to place. Good clean sweet malty flavor with a touch of piney hops. Overall tasty! Thanks to BarZigKin for sharing!

honestly, itís really ugly. like really bad. hazy gold, a tiny fizzy white head with no retention and no lacing. sort of like a soda. citrus, spruce, peppery floral, cereal, bready malt, lemon. light bitter, light tart, very light sweet. light body, slick feel, clean and crisp. absolutely worth a look, even if youíve given up on lagers.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can thanks to Errl. Pours a semi-hazy copper color with a fluffy, bubbly white head of foam. Good retention. Aroma is grassy and citrusy, a lot like cascade and citra was used. Taste is a subtle fruity bitterness with a sweetness that picks up about mid palate and rides through to a juicy finish. This is unlike any pale lager Iíve ever had, and it is very good.
