Slightly hazy amber with a thin white head. Sweet malt aroma with some faint citrus and bread. Taste has a honey characteristic but not too sweet. There’s some citrus rind in there too. Medium body. Solid beer.

honestly, it’s 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 you’ve given up on lagers.

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 I’ve ever had, and it is very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. The look is clear, golden orange in color, with a thin big bubble not long lasting off white head. The smell is hops, citrus, melon, grapefruit, and sticky. The taste is sweet, hops, fruits, crisp, and nice.

12 oz. can poured into shaker- I know, the beerbitches here will proclaim,"He’s drinking ANOTHER pale lager... ugh!" accompanied by acting that as worse as porn, but, frankly, they can suck me raw like sushi, and call me Obama while they do it. Poured a transparent, with an ever so tint of murkiness to it darkened yellow color. Two finger white foamy head became a one finger white foamy head in the time I thought about, and wrote this- impressive! Aroma of grass, hops, and light grain- not too shabby! Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is encased in an almost candi sugar sweetness but the malt can still be found (the farmboy says just a touch of rye is present, am I right?), middle is very impressive- it doesn’t start to fade away, in fact, it becomes stronger, finish is brisk, firm, and slightly acidic from the hops. To be honest, the first thing that popped in my mind while tasting this was the 1980’s version of Stroh’s (MI brew- nevermind Texughtuckys) - firm pale brew, yet slightly acidic, and it refused to turn to water throughout the entire six pack! And trust me, that’s not a bad thing. Not a bad thing at all...Twirl your finger in the air. You know what that means? HOME RUN! Great job Hops & Grain, you have the competition beat for a summer beer.

From a can. Great hop aroma but tastes under carbonated. Light green hop flavor, more citrus than bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of citrus hops and floral Grapefruit. Pours a clear amber with a none lasting white head and spotty lacing. The taste is much like the nose. Floral and fruity. Medium-light body and crisp carbonation. Overall, a good Texas summer time quencher.
